Breather Kit

Looking for suggestions for Stage 1 breather kit for my RGS. Ease of install a priority and best bang for the buck is another.
Thanks for your help

I have a Vance&Hines Grenade, it looks pretty cool. You can take a look here: https://www.roadglide.org/3-%2Agenera...ml#post3924889

talking about "value for money", Kuryakyn offers good stuff at a decent price. I have a Mach2 on my Dyna since 5 years now and happy about it.

what are you considering 'bang for your buck'? if you are not going to be doing much internal engine work, just about any of the stage 1 air cleaners is going to be fine for you. in terms of flow, it doesn't matter if one flows more than the other if they are all more than your engine needs.

if you want to go straight 'bang for buck' then replace your filter with a k&n filter. boom. done.

otherwise, it is more a question of, which one do you like the looks of most, and is within your price range?

THanks for your input. Maybe I worded my thread wrong, didnít mean to sound like I was nickel diming it.
All I was looking for was an opinion if I am going to spend a few hundred is there one that may be better than the next.
Quite often I have seen or heard of someone spending top dollar for a piece of shit, just wanted to get some valued info from past experience.
Thanks

no, i didn't mean to insinuate that you were 'nickel and diming' it, i guess i didn't get my point across fully. the newer air cleaners are plenty fine for basic engine mods, i.e.. stage 1. you are mostly spending your money for looks.

to illustrate, let me throw some numbers out. these are arbitrary numbers....

your engine needs 25cfm
stock ac flows 30cfm
super awesome $5,000 ac flows 35cfm.

neither one will work better than the other because they both flow more air than your engine needs, so if you don't want to spend the $5,000 on super awesome hand carved billet ac, there is no reason to. unless you like the looks of it that much more.

Hi Ironhorse; I'm a big fan of the Arlen Ness Big Sucker kits. I have tried both the Stage I and Stage II kit. The latter worked even better with my SE-cams. These kits are easy to install, bolt-on kits but you'll have to find a cover that fits (AN have several designs and both blacked-out and chrome). The OEM won't fit with this kits...

I love the HD Stage one parts, but that is because I always prefer OEM elements than aftermarket (not always, but most of the times).

In my case, my RGU 17 M8 has the Heavy Breather (I love how it looks and perfomrs) and the SE Street Cannon mufflers with t,he standard end caps.

I know there are much more options aftermarket (V&H, Reinhart, etc).

I think all of then are perfect, so just get the ones that turn you on!!!!!

Don't forget to tell us which one you finally get.

Thanks for all the input. After this info and talking with a few of the guys I ride with Iím leaning towards the V&H VO2 since I am told I can use my stock 103 cover and hear itís good quality and easy install.
Thanks again

S&S on my 15' and now on my '17. I'll never buy anything else. Great flow. Goes under the stock cover, or it can be run open with the older, oval cover insert to hide the mounting hardware.
