Since it's been snowing here in Calgary, today is the first time I've had my bike out since I cut open the air ducts (my former carbon air duct post) - the result?

The induction noise is AWESOME!! And there is a noticeable effect (positive) on acceleration and power at the top of the rev range - definately worth it!

I have noticed a bit more grunt from the beast as the air has cooled from summer temperatures. Hope your extra power is more from your mod than the cool air. Sorry 'bout the snow bro...and the Flames;)

I suspect the airduct modification will become de rigeur for all owners over time (much like Termis on virtually all Ducatis!!).

I notice Ducati have put out their own larger air ducts on offer, how long before the aftermarket guys jump in and provide us with same?

Hey Jonny. We have been looking at those air ducts on ducati's web site for close to a year. No one has actually seen them. I suspect we will only see after market or home jobs.

jdurward's runners look great.

We cut our open OEM air runners and removed the Heimholtz box in the middle too. It is louder and looks much better but I don't know if it makes any more power.

The problem with the stock air runners is that it is still constricted as it enters into the air box. The stock runner tapers down quite a bit before it enters the box.

We are working on some larger Carbon fiber intakes that eliminates this restriction as well as having a larger intake.

I want to see what Motowheels comes up with since DP hasn't produced the goods and I haven't seen how the DP part looks mounted anyway...:think:

AND...I would,nt mind , but no thought has gone into making it look tasteful & follow the lines of the bike.. Its just a massive fookin hole
