    Heh.

    Now, in case you've not done so, go and read about it, then tell me it
    was 'ram air'.

    Flash, old chap, what was the ram air so beloved of 70s Suzuki GTs?

  5. Course it was ram air. It even said Ram Air on it.

  7. It forced air onto the cylinder head in order to stop it overheating. Much
    like a ZXR[1]. Admittedly it wasn't a forced air feed into a pressurised
    airbox like a GSXR1000 but then they should have thought of a different name
    for it. I suspect you knew all this anyway.

    [1] Except it was supposed to work on the Suzuki.

    Right on the GT front but the modern ram air (on the ZXR and GSXR) is to
    pressurise the airbox so as to act like a rudimentary supercharger [1];
    nothing to do with the cooling.

    ...but you knew that.

    [1] For the want of a better description.

    And you've had got away with it if it hadn't been for those pesky kids.

  10. I don't think they did, not on the original ZXR. It was a forced cooling
    system, but ICBW.

    You never removed the tank, then? They just clipped on and did nothing.

    Errm. Thats what I said. I thought the ZXR750 also had pipes that did
    nothing,

    If you go fast enough they suck up the cars in front and spit them out the
    back.

    on a related note, the air-intakes on my ZX-7R don't have any filters
    at the front - presumably there's a filter at the other end - i.e. any
    small animals or rocks that get sucked in the front don't actually end
    up in the air-box?

    There's probably a filter inside the air box, before the carbs.

    I'm pretty sure they should have grills on the front : In fact here's one
    with some but then again wibble flip.
