I don't know if there going to work. But they look ok.
I'd try and run the tubing down below the rad and have two big intakes.

I think they just look better than giant wholes in the frame

im with type one. . . as far as aesthetics go i think the holes look better, although i would probably put a screen over the holes.

but i do think that these may perform better, and dont look all that bad.

My problem is the 1000 air box dosnt quite line up in the frame, so I guess to make it work I should use some Aluminium aircraft tape to bridge and seal the gap, or does that really mater,

fromthe side I think it kinda looks better, it looks finished allmost.

Yeah I was gonna make the mesh sit inside the tube, and make a tear drop shape where it hits the frame with fibre glass or something

Have you seen my ram air covers Joe? If you kept those and made a cover that comes back and kinda smooths them into the frame instead of having them stick out like stalks.

Yeah, what he said...
Is it just for looks or are you trying to get some "Ram air effect" back?

its actually about trying to regain some ram air effect, I actually really dont care to much about looks, the whole bike is themed arround miminal show, all go. what im thinking is 2inch tube comming out of the air ducts, running all the way in to the air box, sticking out say 6 inches, with the last few inches peforated, like the barrel of s 50cal, staggered hole patern, nothing poncey, no internal shit, strieght in to the air box (WHOP)
crap at photoshop....

That actually sounds like a cool idea. I have yet to see anything like that. Go for it!
