Rinehart Moto Series Inverted Air Cleaners Arden, North Carolina based exhaust manufacturer Rinehart Racing entered the crowded air cleaner space with innovative inverted air cleaner designs that are said to “dramatically improve airflow compared to stock air filters.” The Moto Series inverteds have been “meticulously engineered” with pleated top and sides that “maximize the amount of air flowing to the engine from all angles, not just the sides. The design features a highly efficient hidden breather and virtually closed loop system, while the synthetic filter element is water-resistant, removable and washable for easy maintenance.” Machined from forged aluminum and given a chrome or black finish Rinehart Racing Owner and CEO, Judd Hollifield says that “upgrading the exhaust system makes an immediate impact on the performance, look and sound of the motorcycle. But many people overlook the importance of the air going into the engine. “Upgrading the air intake, especially in combination with a Rinehart Racing performance exhaust system, will improve performance in a big way.” Moto Series Inverted Air Cleaners are offered for a variety of Harley models.
