Like on the 600's... has anyone come up with an idea for how to make them for the ninjette? I would guess that it would give a small boost to power if done correctly it would act as a weak forced air intake....

I just don't thing so . It just makes it hard to tune. BUT some people disagree and they are welcome to build something and prove me wrong. I wish it would help at only 100 mph .

hmm,, so it would be pointless on the 250?

its just an idea that I have pop in to my head every once in a while.

even the 600's don't get any advantage until higher speeds tho.

That's it exactly. Most of the bigger sport bikes don't see gains into triple-digit speeds, and since the 250 can barely attain that it's not worth it. Hell, I remember reading that the Buell 1125cr didn't utilize it's ram-air intakes until 150mph... But at that speed, it then became a pressurized air intake (and true ram air) adding to the bikes capabilities.

Just throw a turbo on it, then you've got ram-air across the board!

wow,,, id think closer to 60+ you'd get a small gain.... ohwell.

Twas a learning experience none the less!

in those triple digit speeds air resistance changes dramatically and so would the flow of air in the ram air scoops
