Was short on time for that last post. I had been working on the aerodynamics of the bike for about 12 months. I had put the fan in front of the radiator. built C/F shrouds to direct air into the radiator with great success as my fan almost never comes on in Summer city traffic. I had been considering NACA ducts just behind the blinkers. There is a triangle drawn in texta on my faring. I was considering running C/F tubes to flex hose connected to the top of my C/F glove box. I was also thinking about running tunnels from the grill.

That sound deadened cover was lifting at 60/65mph. It was flexing the lightweight C/F cover out of its clip. I had designed it to be easy to remove but still it was being blown of. I could feel the rushing cool air when i put my naked hand next to the carbes. The same hand next to the radiator was bathed in warmth There is simply no reason to bring air to the air box as it has ample when moving
