Hi Dude,

A kind of , a ram-air system is when the tubes are connected with a closed airbox .
I cut mine off
I placed a filter on the carbs and he wouldn't rev above 7500 RPM anymore.
I found out that when you ride the bike , you create a vacuum behind the fiaring and under the fuell tank.
You can find out for yourself , at one point of speed your key ring of your ignition key will bend over to the front in direction of your tacho
(I hope you understand what I mean)
So I made these plate and tubes to guide air to the filter ,and it helps (a lot )

Hey Wilco,
sounds good......
Would you have any pics of it with the tank up and airbox removed to better see how you did it ? I know it would be ( fairly ) simple, but if you got pics I can cheat !!!

Cheers,
Darryl.

Hey guys, haven't posted anything in a while so I thought I'd post some pics with my baby's carbon front fairing which I put on before the summer. The 3rd pic is my 2 Ducs

Hi Darryl

Yeah no problem , I hope I can make some pics tomorrow , it's so bad weather here and to make good pics I have to take the bike outside

I will show you how you can rev a 900 ss engine up to 10000 RPM with no Carrillo's , racecams , lightweight parts and with the stock carbs

Hey, you've got a great looking Superlight! What exhaust do you have on? It doesn't seem to have a balancer pipe linking the main header from the front cylinder with the header from the rear one, basically two individual pipes which is quite unique.

'04 Multistrada 1000DS
'97 900SS
'82 900SS

Correct , the mufflers are std. 888 SP4 . They look great on the bike (I think ) and a friend of mine fitted the mufflers to the std pipes
He says that when you make a good exhaust you don't need balancer pipes.
He makes exhaustspipes for the factory teams of HVA and Husaberg Supermoto so I don't contradict him and let him do the job.
The sound is so different now , It's more between the 888 and the old F1.

When the wind is in the right direction , my wife hears me coming at around 3 miles .
