    Is it not possible to use both the Heavy Breather and fairing lowers on my Road Glide Custom? HD parts guy says the lowers block the air to the Breather and I also was wondering if there is even room for the breather with the lowers because of it's length.

    Thanks

    The nomenclature I just read said "does not fit models with lower fairing glove boxs". I would think that means it would hit, I've never seen them on a bagger so I don't know.
    As for the air being blocked, yea behind the lowers is probably a dead air area, so you would not get all the advantages of flowing air, but air would not be "blocked" to the filter. Looks kinda pricey to me for a k&n on a tube.

    I just re-read the nomenclature. Nowhere does it say "k&n" filter, my bad if it's a different manufacturer.

    Thanks sure appreciate it.

    The reason I would consider the Heavy Breather is that I believe they boast an almost 13 hp gain. Is this possible? I know K&N does for sure boast this gain on their HB type system.
