Product Details

Arlen Ness Stage 2 Big Sucker Air Cleaner Kit For Harley Sportster

Arlen Ness, the "King of Choppers," knows a thing or two about performance. The Big Sucker is the best-selling and most powerful air cleaner kit on the market - period. Simply, the Big Sucker is designed to give your engine maximum airflow for maximum performance. Testing shows that by simply installing a Big Sucker kit, horsepower gains of up to 21% are attainable. Big Sucker kits feature patented, hidden breather backing plate technology - this means the breathers are incorporated into the air cleaner housing itself. Gone are unsightly external hoses and hardware, giving your bike a super-clean look. Each hidden breather has a sealing O-ring at the heads and exits at the carburetor or throttle body inlet to provide efficient internal engine pressure relief. 

The Standard air filter elements are made one at a time using the finest materials available. Standard filters are all pre-oiled, and feature four layers of surgical-grade cotton to promote airflow and filter air effectively. The filters are hand-poured one at a time in a urethane body, unlike many other filters that are spun, which can leave a residue on the filtration media. The Stainless Jacketed Filter differs from the Standard Filter in two areas: The mesh supporting the gauze is made of a rust-resistant stainless steel as opposed to standard carbon steel, and the synthetic filtration gauze is in black or dark grey, rather than the pink/red hue of the Standard Filter.

The Stage 2 kit differs from the Stage 1 by including a 20% larger air filter element. All kits include a Big Sucker backing plate, high-flow filter, chrome banjo bolts, gasket, hardware, and simple instructions. Made in the USA.

Features:

  • Hidden breather technology built into backing plate
  • Steel or billet aluminum outer cover
  • Air filter element 20% larger than Stage 1
  • Maximum airflow standard or synthetic air filter
  • Chrome banjo bolts
  • Gaskets, hardware and simple instructions included
  • Made in the USA

Note: Air cleaner images are for reference only. All filters kits will come with your choice of filter.

Big Sucker doesn't suck.
Although the stock heads on my 48 are only capable of flowing so much air and the Big Sucker II is probably overkill, I am a happy man. The Sporty now feels so much more "together". It's not just the extra power. I fitted this cleaner and loaded a new tune to remap the EFI and the bike now runs so much sweeter. It made me realise that the 48 is a bit of a dud out of the box, but nice to know there is all that potential!

Great if you cant work without instructions
Holy cow, the instructions on this product SUCK! Had to reason my way through a few things because the written instructions and pictures were no help whatsoever. Arlen Ness needs to fire their technical writing department and start over! Still, once I got it installed and running it was pretty cool.

Looks great -Easy install
The install was straight forward. I like the large filter surface without being bulky; it protrudes no further than the stock filter housing.

You will definitely notice the difference in this addition! I had a different after market kit originally but this matched much better and produced better results. The ole little sporty has a new life thanks to RevZilla and the Arlen Ness!!
