Dual Ram air intakes for H2?

So little things can really bug me. One of those things on the H2 is the right dummy Ram air intake. Is there a way to make it functional?
If this has been hashed out elsewhere on the site I apologize.

I just had the faring off to. There is no room because of the headlight and other stuff to get another intake in there. One might get a very small one, but it would be so small that it really wouldn't help very much.

Also, the air filter on the H2 is pathetically small. More intake area is probably not really useful because the restrictions downstream limit the qty of air. Also the intake tube has a bunch of big holes in it, possibly negating the ram-air effect.

Before you try to get dual ram air going you may want to get single ram air working. The six holes on the air tube effectively dump the downstream tube pressure to = atmospheric.

From KHI:

Effective filter area: over 11,000 mm2


According to tuners removing the filter makes little difference.

So do you recommend sealing those holes and removing charcoal box?

Because this bike uses forced induction uncovering the second air intake, even if it were possible, would make little difference to the boost level and resulting peak power of the H2.

Charge cooling is probably the best thing to do. Also raising the engine rpm limit and installing higher gearing for the supercharger, if you want to take the risk.

Intercooler beats ram air basically
And sc gears or/and rpms
These things is the truer true way to go is what ur saying.
I believe it, specially after so many guys here got great results on it.

Go look a the RG video. He does a dyno run with the air filter out and gained a huge amount of horse power, he even states the the filter is very restrictive.
