Really awesome or Really stupid idea.

So i ordered these "boots" online. they are WAYYY too big for forks lol. so i thought how can i use these? how about this? would help quite the bike a little, and maybe even move when i dump the throttle. i have a clear floatbowl, HPI ignition and maybe this.

you could really "see the engine work" lol.

anyway... stupid? cool? obviously i would mount it nice.

oops heres the pic

they do it all the time on mobys in france

Re: Really awesome or Really stupid idea.

Good to get the filter up out of the water and mud.

Re: Really awesome or Really stupid idea.

so the strange shape inside doesnt like mess with the airflow or anything?

the fact that it compresses doesnt effect the pressure or some shit?

i dont know just trying to see if theres anything wrong with the idea. thanks for the encouragement. i might shorten it a bit but yeah, would quite the bike, keep it cleaner etc etc.

Re: Really awesome or Really stupid idea.

what pressure? it's a uni pod. you only get pressure when the support spring inside accidentally squishes the foam because of the frame or side covers or whatever. that's why i didn't like mine. have you tried running with and without the uni? if you can notice even the slightest difference, then you shouldn't have to ask whether the tube will affect the flow either. i would think that a longer tube would require more force to pull in the air due to fluid friction, especially with the corrugation, but at that length it shouldn't be very noticable unless it has a sharp bend. that's just my speculation.

Re: Really awesome or Really stupid idea.

yeah you are right im sure, was just throwing out ideas on why it might not work or whatever.

there is no difference in performance, tecnically u can run a bigger jet with no air filter but i mean you wouldnt notice one size up.

air filters are on there just to make sure we dont fuck our shit up.

Re: Really awesome or Really stupid idea.

ugly?

Re: Really awesome or Really stupid idea.

horrifyingly ugly?

also, i think harold thinks the tube will compress and expand under the awesome suction force of most-expensive-exhaust-pipe-ever-puch. I find this unlikely.

Re: Really awesome or Really stupid idea.

well when the bikes put together i will see how it looks.

dont worry i think its kinda ugly too. just sucks to waste money on a part.

Re: Really awesome or Really stupid idea.

is it any quieter?

Re: Really awesome or Really stupid idea.

Wont give much problems, if the tube material is rigid enough to hold the filter up.

Looks cool, nice filter too :)

I prefer stock filters on Puch, drilled with some extra holes for more air.

I like em better cuz they keep the loud intake sound in a bit, and cops here are very very interested in intake sound :P

Re: Really awesome or Really stupid idea.

Harold, there is a similar air filter tube like that, for the 17mm Bing, when used other than on an Magnum XK, is a ram air system. Go for it, I say ! Brent

That's going to be loud as hell, but it sure is a wacky look!

Just be sure to slap it on a bike that looks equally wacky...I'd hate to see that sort of thing on my no-nonsense bike! However, a bike that has been customized for a more extreme look would work just fine.

Shape shouldn't make too much of a difference when the diameter is that large. if it was smaller, I'd worry about it though.

Re: Really awesome or Really stupid idea.

I'd say hook it around so it faces forward for ram air and use streched pantyhose instead of that restricting UNI thing. but if you really wanna make it worth it I think those ridges may be restricting a little. but with somthing that big I'll bet it is only like a .0005% or something.

Re: Really awesome or Really stupid idea.

the bendy ridges wont affect airflow that much, like hippy said. and again make it face forward, that will make it work better. it being far away from engine heat is a good thing. cooler is better when it comes to air induction.

Re: Really awesome or Really stupid idea.

Really stupid.

Re: Really awesome or Really stupid idea.

Harrold how did you set the timing on your ignition I am having a hard time getting mine setup properly.
