Default Air Intakes??

I am looking for a new air intake for my 08 JP and saw an Arlen Ness Performance Air Box Kit on ebay. Has anybody have any experience with this particular intake? How does it differ performance wise from the S&S intake?

Before you decide, make sure you have someone (dealer etc) that have the ability to remap your ECM for you after you install a new air intake. I found out quickly that after I installed my S&S on my kingpin, there wasn't anyone around to remap my bike. Six months later , im still looking to have it remapped.

Ness air box kit is just that...a kit that doesn't replace the whole airbox. The S&S is far superior in performance because you are removing the stock airbox and replacing with a higher flow airbox. Great upgrade imho

That's what I thought but wanted to make sure. Going with the S&S. Thanks for the information.
