Your welcome I find Aero and hydro dynamics interesting. I learned on my 89' Kawisaki ZX10 how much a small thing(s) like a rear view mirror poking out into the wind can slow you down. As I started to learn to ride at sustained high speeds (over 150) on Wisconsin country roads, I'd observe my mirrors being push in towards the faring above 120. So I'd pull em' in before the run to gain speed. A few mods later and my ride was as fast as my friend (who owned the Kawi dealership) who rode a new ZX11. He was shocked!! Aero mods (cheap) and a pipe/jetting and we were even

Check out this cool read and think about our unique trucks and all the "little" things add up to a Hippopotamus that knows how to run AND Dance....

Re; the MOPER CAI kit??? The ONLY possible reason I can come up with is to utilize the the draw from the hood scoop to evacuate air from the sectioned off filter area. So cool, outside air is fed into the fender from the grill block off scoop and then drawn into the large isolation chamber that the tube and filter are setting in. Kind of a "flow through" design once under way.

Cheers!
