Ok its a cold and breezy day to day and I was running my gixer without ram air this summer, anyhow a ram air kit come up for sale for a car, it had loads of aluminum tube and I went at it, and all I can say is holy shit what a diferance.

air induction sound and lots more bottom end power it makes a warp warp noize....

Im thinking some of feeling of the power increase maybe just the cool weather

cold weather will make your bike run SOOOO nice!!

i like the idea, and am sure it really does suck more..... might look cool if you angled the ends of the tubes.

Yeah Im thinking about that. I was thinking of getting some aluminum vollosity stacks of a V8 of and cutting them down and just having the big bell mouths at the end of the tubes...
I guess it will look like a couple of trumpets sticking out the front of the bike...

Very nice idea.:rock:

Would you say that it ran fine in the warmer weather with out the tubes? And did it run better in the cold weather cause if the new tubes, or cause it was just colder out?

it ran better with the tubes ....full stop!
running without the tubes sucked, I ran it before with the standard tubes cut down,
but lost one on the highway.
so ever since I was trying to come up with something

yeah but what you got to understand this wasn't something I did for looks it was about performance, the power diferance is honestly night and day.
and I would recommend any one who has a streetfighter that had air induction , find away to reestablish it.

Probably the last ever Norton to be seen on the race track, capable of speeds in excess of 200 mph from its rotary 500 cc engine. Winning the Senior TT in the hands of one Steve Hislop.
