Harley-Davidson 883 And 1200 Sportster Motorcycles Get Performance Power Upgrade with Air Intake

 
 
The Harley-Davidson Motor Company has continuously produced the Sportster line of motorcycles since 1957. In the 1950s British-made motorcycles were all the rage. The Sportster was born out of a need for a Milwaukee-built answer to the lightweight, fast, and fun-to-ride British motorcycles flying off showroom floors.

Times have changed, and sport motorcycles have evolved in a very different direction. But today, just as it was over 50 years ago, the Sportster remains Harley-Davidson’s most affordable, lightweight, and easy-to-ride line of motorcycles.

K&N seized the opportunity to increase performance for 2007 to 2012 Harley-Davidson Sportster 883 cc and 1200 cc motorcycles with its new Aircharger® performance air intake kit. Available in a textured black finish, part number 63-1126 will increase horsepower by over 8.5 HP at the rear wheel!

This K&N Aircharger® intake kit completely replaces the potentially restrictive original equipment air cleaner assembly with a mandrel-bent powder coated aluminum intake tube and a chrome-top conical shaped K&N High-Flow Air Filter™ number RC-3680. K&N air filters are washable/reusable and will last the life of your vehicle. Also included with part number 63-1126 is a complete breather assembly, mounting hardware, and a throttle body adaptor.

K&N dynamometer tests show an increase of 8.57 horsepower at 5,533 RPM on a 2009 Harley-Davidson Sportster 1200. Results will vary with other models. Part number 63-1126 increases performance while also enhancing the appearance of your Sportster.

Part number 63-1126 can be easily installed with basic hand tools in 90 minutes or less. This intake kit requires no cutting, or drilling, and is backed by the K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty®.

For increased protection and style, K&N offers Drycharger® filter wrap number RC-3680DK that can be used in conjunction with 63-1126. Drychargers® are made from a durable polyester material containing uniform micron openings which will stop small dirt particles, repel water, and increase service intervals. All while adding very little restriction to the airflow of the filter.

K&N’s Aircharger® Performance Air Intake Kit number 63-1126 fits the following motorcycles:
