Has anyone experimented with a pressurized air box?
1. comments?
2. Experience?
3. Mapping issues?
4. Performance gains?

The bike never reaches a speed where a pressurized airbox would be a benefit. If you look into the sportbikes, you will find that feature does not come into effect at speeds lower than 140 or 150 mph.

You may be right, but logically that just doesn't ring true. Seems like it would be more like a rheostat not an on off switch. Just my $.02.

It is pretty much an 'on-off switch' because the ram-air effect increases at the square of the increase in velocity (all other things being equal which in reality they never are).

I'd guess that as long as there's good airflow into the engine there's not going to be much ram-air effect until the velocity of the rammed air is significantly higher than that of the non-rammed air intake velocity.

Or something like this. I'm not an engineer ...

unless you use a drain pipe and can get to about 80 that should work,but the next corner could be tricky.

Yeah, that was what I was thinking - if you have a larger opening funneling the air into a smaller channel.

You'll have to lean more into the corner is all.

You wouldn't have to leave it all stick out the front, you could wrap brass pipe in diminishing sizes around the bike several times, and use several valves to regulate the air pressure...and maybe call it something like "tuba-charging"
