Arlen Ness 90 degree monster sucker opinions

I’m thinking about buying one and curious if anyone has used this one before and how far it sticks out and if it bothers the leg? I’m 5’9” and 30” inseam. I don’t see this one discussed a lot anywhere. Is it way over kill for stage one? I’m considering doing cam upgrade in the future also.

maybe no one has used it?

it looks a lot like the heavy breather by hd. had one on my bike and had no problem with it, except that it interfered with fairing lowers. so got rid of it cause i like my lowers.

as far as upgrading your engine, go for the ac that you like the looks of. most all of them will flow more than enough for your engine's needs. even with cams. don't be fooled by cf numbers, that's marketing 101. if your engine needs 15cfm, then you will get the same performance from an ac that flows 20cfm as you would from one that flows 30cfm. both of them are more than capable of supplying your engine what it needs. (note that the cfm numbers used are just arbitrary numbers to make a point)

Never seen this post.

I've got no experience with that one. I did have the Harley heavy breather and it did not bother my leg. I'm 5' 10".

And this is not HD forums. We have less traffic but more quality posts. And uncommonly used parts like Ness stuff you want get much help on. Me personally won't buy anything from him. Had mirrors that flaked and rusted in a season.

If you stick around you'll see theres less bullshit and attitude problems. No pissing contests. And no douchebaggery. But some of the nicest guys you'll meet on a forum. That said. Ease up. Settle in and start posting.

i have the HD heavy breather on both my RG and SG. I do have what can best be described as Stage 3 upgrades on both. i'm 5'9" with about a 30" inseam as well. for me, i like the breather as it comes out, bends up about a half inch and bends forward. my leg sits in right behind it when on my floorboards. i've never had any soreness or agitation from it. other bikes i've had, my leg sat/rested on the intake and made my foot position feel less natural. if i were taller or my legs longer, it may get in the way, but i'd probably just get a seat that sat back further.

Thanks guys. I was just being ornery, figured I’d get a ride out of some people. Appreciate the feedback.

SE Heavy Breather

(+) similar to Ness item described
(+) similar to K&N, clean and re-oil
(+) several inches forward of my knee
(-) it was my fault, but I left the rain sock on it once and noted a crippling lack of horsepower when I pulled out to pass, had to back off - since then I use a REMOVE BEFORE FLIGHT pennant on the rain sock. Wet filters either dry out or you can replace them, the power penalty can be dangerous if unexpected.

So to get someone to move you force your way through the crowd? I’d rather be asked to move. Maybe I will, maybe I won’t. But push me and I shove back.
Such behavior isn’t needed on this site.
