That's a freaking piece of art work. After reading that link and looking at those builds I'm in awe. I'm even more excited to see how this turns out, sounds like the bike will handle even better once it's finished.

The old bike and its new frame and suspension getting to know each other....hopefully this will reduce any chance of transplant rejection.......:-)

Started Fabricating the new inlet duct which should be way better in terms of flow and pressure recovery into the airbox.....

The stock arrangement is a bit of a compromise.....one thing I have noticed is the 2016 frame inlet duct has a couple of holes either side of the cast duct just before it enters the airbox...these according to Kawasaki are for noise attenuation for induction roar...these holes vent into the interior of the cast frame....the thing is the frame has a number of holes cast into it which are sealed with adhesive backed rubber patches.....these patches upon removing the frame from the motor were no longer sealing so probably would effect the inlet ducts ability to build and hold pressure into the airbox......I would suggest a fix would be to seal these holes in the inlet duct from the inside of the duct ...and so probably allowing a better ram air effect into the airbox.....

This shows Kawasakis use of the frames internal volume as a resonator to reduce intake noise.....I am very very doubtful of this....its probably just a good source of leakage of the inlets Ramair system....

This is easily the most interesting thing on the internet. What a work of art.
