Since 1969, K&N has been perfecting the process of filtering the air that goes into motorcycle engines. Now, the company has released a new product that not only provides clean air for your engine to breathe, but looks great while doing it. Oh and it adds up to 6 horsepower. Not bad for a simple bolt-on kit.
The new systems from K&N are the 63-1134 and 63-1137 Aircharger intake systems. The 63-1134 fits 2008-2016 Harley Touring models, while the 63-1137 bolts onto 2001-2015 Harley Dyna and Softail models. Both kits include a cast aluminum intake tube and come in a textured black finish with a raised, brushed aluminum K&N logo. This styling exudes performance, while also providing a timeless design that would look good on any style of bike build. The kits feature an oversized, oiled cotton, clamp-on air filter that feeds air directly into a wide air tube with an integrated velocity stack. An integrated breather system ensures these kits are a direct replacement for your stock intake.
On the dyno, K&N saw an estimated 6 horsepower and 6.5 lb-ft of torque gain for the 63-1134 kit on a 2016 H-D Street Glide. The 63-1137 system made an estimated 5 horsepower and 8 lb-ft of torque on a 2016 Harley Switchback.
These kits will be unveiled at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, so if you will be in town, swing by the K&N booth. It will be located in the vendor area at Black Hills Harley Davidson.
