    The bike: 2006 Softail Standard (carb)

    I've already got V&H straight shots installed. If I were to add an Arlen Ness Big Sucker Stage II is it absolutely necessary to rejet the carb?

    Thanks in advance...

    Yes. To get air-fuel mixture correct, it is. I'm sure somebody here can get you in the ballpark on re-jetting.

    Yes, more air in + more air out = more fuel.

    I would avoid the Arlen Ness Big Sucker because its not worth the money. Lots of folks here have had issues with them cracking the back plate. I'm one of them. Get the Screaming Eagle.
    Lots of info in the search on carb setup. Don't fall for the "kit" type affair. You don't need it.

    Yes, you should rejet or it will be too lean.

    This will give you an idea of what you need and how to do it...
