Air intake

Postby Tortron » 01 Feb 2006, 09:30

looking at the airbox of the 1300 i figure you could quite easily attatch some piping to it and run that down to the air dam, thus getting cooler air. Good idea/bad idea

Good idea!, I have a cold air feed on mine.
4" pipe with a `bell mouth` attached to the HS front, pointing forwards, it ends approx 2" from the sock filter on the carb. It gives a mild ram effect, even better with it connected straight to the airbox.

Me & a mate once played with same idea on a diesel Landy, pipe onto the oil bath type air filter housing, routed it through the front & nailed a road cone into the end of the pipe, when we got a bit of speed up it was like having a turbo, the old thing had never gone as fast in it`s life!!

All this took place in a field btw :)

how so? general logic would lead me to believe that air outside the engine bay is cooler than inside (more so on long runs) therefore taking air from outside is better due to it being cooler and therefore more dense, not to mention less fumes from the engine (unless you are right up someones ass)

If I believed advertisements, I'd have fourteen silicon-enhanced breasts, a nine foot wang and every degree known to man.
