    So you get more air flow. Does anybody know how much more?

  2. 2 Mike Dec 29th, 2016 at 10:49 am

    So if it flows more air iand is better for the engine, for performance, etc., why doesn’t Harley just make the filter that way standard on its bikes?

    First, Harley would save itself the wasted manufacturing and other costs of making a stock air filter that the majority of new buyers pull off the bike anyway.

    Second, Harley would also save its customers $185 in buying the new product. Oh wait a minute . . ding ding ding . . . Harley wants to make even more money off its customers by offering them an inferior product off the assembly line and a slightly better product for another $185. Got it.

    If the m8 runs so well stock why do you need this?

    Don’t you sometimes get the impression that the stock bike you buy from HD must be sh*t?

    capitalism gone awry.

    Looks like a Pannini sandwich maker

    Yup. Requires calibration (more money) or it will run too lean.

    Give me more air…not too worried about he $185.00…it’s a very small consideration after the cost of the bike..

    Nice modification for Harleys … will have to tell friends about this parts … thanks!

    Zenaldo is the ideal Harley customer. They wish there were 100 milion more Zenaldos in the world, more than willing too pay $20K for a bike and then pay some more to make it run properly.

    gonna have to use dynojet’s powervision or PC 5 (or other). Checking out HD’s “street” tuner-some of the parameters are off limits. Can’t adjust ’em.

    I would have to also ask why the motorcycle did not come from the factory with this air cleaner as well as the high flow exhaust and other items that would make the motorcycle perform better and I believe that it has more to do with the current EPA regulations than the motor company.

    I do not believe the cost difference to make and install these items which are referred to as performance parts are much different.

    When I worked for American Quantum myself and Sal got their motorcycle engine EPA Certified so I do have some experience with this.

    One thing that you do see on many Screaming Eagle and other performance parts is a disclaimer that says for off road use. The consumer when purchasing the item is saying that is what they intend to use it for when in most circumstances they are intending on using it on road. Okay lying – no big deal the government does it every day to us so what harm is there.

    Well the government needs to stop lying to us and passing laws that is not in the best interest of the people and one of the worse government agencies is the EPA.

    President-elect Trump has made the statement he wants to make changes at the EPA and there are currently many in the motorcycle community working on submitting requests to the Trump EPA Transition Team on changes they would like to see to motorcycles and other vehicles.

    There is still a long way to go on this and many discussions on how to proceed. Of course there will be opposition and that is expected.

    Since you are here reading this, I suggest you contact your motorcycle rights organizations and let them know what changes you would like to see in EPA Regulations pertaining to motorcycles.

    It could mean the new motorcycle you want to buy would have better performance parts and a lower price and those with older motorcycles could make changes without being a law breaker.

    Do not take my comment about being a Law breaker Personal. Oh Just For The Record I Do Break A Lot Of Laws, Especially When It Comes To EPA Regulations and over the years have fought them and plan on continuing to do so.

    You are welcome to join me any time if you have an interest in this.

    Only helps at high revs, which most HDs are not run at.

    Never bought a new HD in my lifetime Mike…why bother when you’re just using it as a platform to cut it up anyway… I just know more air helps it breath…better performance..that’s all I’m after…fast & custom..never rode a stock bike either..I’m sure K&N is also working on high flow air filters as we speak for the M8..lighten up pal…

  16. 16 Ernie Dec 30th, 2016 at 5:04 pm

    Everyone should know that you don’t buy a Harley and not put money into it. I agree that there are a lot of things that should be stock, but you always want more … That’s why my bike is a Hardly Davidson ….

  17. 17 Ol man sal Dec 30th, 2016 at 10:33 pm

    Yes Mike it’s just like the exhaust and the Ugly Feet when you use to buy a fat boy first thing that came up with an ugly seat on a Fatboy and that dumb exhausted you couldn’t hear you coming by now a air cleaner what’s next

    Sure Rogue, Trump is the answer to every business challenge, deregulate, let businesses run free for they have our long term interests in mind. If we ignore the science and focus on what is easy and we desire we too can have rose colored glasses.

    Sure, a motor needs more air to breathe, coupled with a richer mixture of fuel. Cams let a certain volume of the mixture in and beyond factory settings that meet emissions levels (already a compromise over that of autos) which limit power in order to keep a full burn of fuel. For a given configuration of physical components there is a maximum power available .vs emissions. H-D already was taken to the mat for hiding behind “off-road” use with its previous Race Tuner. That allowed taking the mixture to a too rich level, required for higher horsepower.

    Let’s call a spade a spade here, you want more power from a push-rod, low rpm, long stroke motor – there are means to blow away emissions. Doing so is a choice, and the EPA and/or the Donald are mere players, fallible and politically motivated but mother nature and time keep track.
