Who cares, hypercharger is hideous!

Plus the opening and closing flap is useless! Just a bunch of failure prone mechanical junk designed to fascinate idiots. Serves no functional purpose.

Neither one is worth a damn.....They both look ridiculous and don't add any performance.
They are gimmicks designed to entice morons to open their wallets.

I have a normal heavy breather on my Road Glide and I like it because it's out of the way of my knee but there is no mechanical advantage to either one.

I absolutely agree with all the negative things said about the HyperCharger.... I can't believe they actually sell any of those things....

While I'm not a fan of the look of the Heavy Breather.... There are several very good tuners over on HTT Forum who prefer, recommend, and/or have no issues with the Heavy Breather....

I can't ignore the experience/knowledge of the tuners who like it......

I couldn’t agree more, garbage. Why do you need moving parts on an air cleaner assembly? Just more $h!t to go wrong.

Hypercharger is the only aftermarket air cleaner I know of that actually flows less air than stock...

Kuryakin used to sell one sort of shaped like a v-twin engine. I've always heard that they were the most restrictive one on the market!

I was at my dealer today getting some ESP work done on my 14 FLHTK, and saw a guy with the HyperCharger. Did not have the courage to show him this thread, lol.
