Hey all,

I know BPP has a Ram Induction Side Scoop design. But I was thinking there is too much space for the air to be mis-directed (see their picture on website).

So I was playing around with some ideas in 3D while watching my Dolphins playoff hopes dwindle...

Do you think that if you're going to have a air scoop, that it should have something like a tube or channel directing the air toward the intake? Or is this insignificant to how much air the V-Rod is already getting?

See pic below. The shape is not perfect...only a concept.

Thoughts?

Yeah I've been looking at the overflow bottle and the wires. The wires can be easily designed around, but that bottle makes it tough.

Good point about the rain!

I've got a buddy with a rapid prototype machine. I'll try a few iterations and see what I come up with.

Wow! Those look great Frank! Were they made by hand or did you use a surface modeler?

By the way Kaz, we could really reduce the weight of your bike by using materials such as cork or mesh... what do you think? (hehe... j/k, I couldn't resist.)
