Big Sucker, Big Difference

Bless my wife, a Big Sucker was my birthday present. I was previously running a cobra fuel processor, vance and hines pipes and a k&n filter.

The sucker was the last piece of the puzzle. It's a different bike now, sounds great and pulls pulls pulls (as much as a 900 can). The bike used to be a little flat riding 65mph two up, not any more.

Good investment!

The things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most. People are good; honor, courage, virtue mean everything; power and money mean nothing; good always triumphs over evil; true love never dies. A man should believe in those things, because they are worth believing in.

I did speak directly with Arlen Ness about this very issue. They do sell a rain sock, but, we agreed that a pair of pantyhose in the saddlebag for just in case would do just fine.

Not the best photo from the library, but gives an idea on the BAK profile compared to tank edge.
