Let me see if I understand this.....you're scooping more air back to hit the rear cylinder right?

Concept is good!
Should be cooler when the bike is moving, does it help much when the going gets real slow...5-15 mph?

The scoop will help, other bikes have used an air scoop to help with cooling with success. Not a cure all but the bike is going to need something and the scoop seems like a good plan.

Where did you purchase it?

At best, isn't that mixing the hot radiator air with whatever ambient is?
At worst, you're directing the hot radiator air to directly under the seat.

I must be missing something.

the warm air flowing over the radiator air flows, they get fresh air and feed it right on the rear exhaust and moves the air is stagnant, over 30 degrees the seat became hot, I live in Italy near Maranello (home of the ferrari) and in summer it is warm enough

Just a wild guess, but I suggest maybe he made them himself? Seems an obvious solution if there's nothing available on the market...

Makes sense. Just had the 'heat proofing' put on the underside of the seat, I reckon its worse on my legs than it was before!!

What are the scoops made of?
