The Ventilator is one of the lowest profile air cleaners around. I was still hitting my leg on it and was getting annoyed, so I looked at pretty much everything out there and couldn't find anything that was any narrower while maintaining the warranty. And the Ventilator is good for at least Stage II. I got some mini floorboards which moved my foot out a little and now my knee doesn't hit. I'm happy with it now, especially because I have a 114 so it came with the bike.

Just installed the screaming Eagle Heavy breather only to realize it covers up the peg/brake. Fits the motor fine.. What an expensive lesson! (This is the one I installed https://www.shoputahharley.com/produ...thr-glss-black)

I suppose I'll be trying to find a more "low profile" cleaner. What are you guys running?
I know this is an old post but I just decided to fit the same air cleaner to my 114 Fat Bob. When you say it covers up the peg/brake are you saying that you canít reach/operate them? Thatís crazy. I just ordered the HB and the cover for it (MUCH more expensive here in the UK)

It will vary for everyone depending on your riding style, height, weight etc. I rode the stage 4 with heavy breather demo at the dealership and it got in the way of my leg. I like to keep my legs tucked in close to the tank so I couldn't have lived with it. I'm 6'3" so yea, it got in the way.

Pretty sure it's the edge cut billet brake lever with defiance brake pad. About a $230 setup from HD.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

Here is the set up on my 115th Fatty. I'm 5' 11" tall and it fits me with no problem.
