    Stage I
Heavy Breather Air Cleaner Kit is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product, but not described sufficiently online This kit fits to Original Equipment throttle body, not the 58mm one. Someone wrote in review as " it's the only breather that would fit my 58mm throttle body", I think he was mentioning another one (Part#29400227), which is $349, $20 more expensive than this. Probably, he has left his review on wrong kit. However, the main reason is that the product description is lack of the most significant information. I figured out this problem because I was misled and ordered wrong one. After I did some researches when I got a hardcopy of Harley catalog, I found that the description of catalog is clearly indicated the difference of these two very similar kits, but not here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Iron Considering the fact that it's the only breather that would fit my 58mm throttle body its pretty bad ass and looks crazy on my Iron.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Filter rusts fast Looks great but the filter end cap has started to rust badly after only 700 miles. I leave the sock on every ride now so the rust doesn't show.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks fast, works very well Great looking replacement for stock AC, I had this on my older Road Glide. Looks good, the chrome never flaked off and element stayed clean longer than I expected.

does this come with gaskets?

I have a 2014 forty eight and was wondering if this comes with gaskets. If not where can I find them
Asked by: nick1135
Hi Nick1135, If you click on the "Screamin' Eagle "Heavy Breather" Performance Air Cleaner Kit Instruction Sheet" link, you will find that this kit includes a gasket for the backplate to carburetor or induction module (P/N 29059-88A) and a gasket for the intake tube to backplate (P/N 29593-05A). Also, you can always get replacement gaskets at your local dealership. Thank you for your question.

Do I have all of the parts

I bought a used screamin eagle heavy breather, it appeared to have all parts from comparing to the kits I was looking at online. When I went to install, it did not line up or sit flush with the throttle body, like there should be an adapter to fill in the gap. Any way to figure out if the unit I have is the proper fitment? I thought there were very few big twins that this kit did not fit? I have a 2014 FXSb Breakout. Also, where can I buy any parts that may be missing, including gaskets? Please see the photo that shows all parts that I have. I know I am missing gaskets, but what else?
Asked by: Caleb23
Hello Caleb23, This kit is for 2008-Later XL models and not for a Softail. The PN you need is 29098-09 for a 2014 FXSB. Thank you!
