found these on E-BAY!!!!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2-8hp...QQcmdZViewItem


and I always wondered if like 4 of those tornado things would work on our bikes but not worth the cost of about $60 bucks each!

so what do you think about the claim?
do you think the idea is practical?

like a relatively cheap port job!

Re: found these on E-BAY!!!!

I would thnk with having something taking up room inside the velocity stacks you wouldn't get as much air into the combustion chamber which results in loss of HP

Re: found these on E-BAY!!!!

Motorcyclist or one of the mags did a write up and said they were BS


On the one bike they worked on it had the perfect airbox design to allow a minute bit of functionality. If it looks too good to be true, it usually is.

Re: found these on E-BAY!!!!

I've read these only produce the maximum hp when combined with the air-foil wing frame sliders.

Re: found these on E-BAY!!!!

you're suppose to take weight off the bike not add it if you want to go faster.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.
