I just wonder if anyone has the same consers with me!
I NEED, MUST, HAVE TO outrun my mate and his R1.
Just at top speed.
But I don't want to mess with the interiors of the engine.
So I thought of a bigger ram-air intake.
Anyone who knows someone that can make happy.
Or any other ideas;
It's not just about how big the scoop is, air box and throttle body, etc. are very important. Ram air will give you a few more HP at high speed, no way to beat R1 with just that. You may consider a turbo if all you want is to beat that R1. Not sure that it can be done without some major engine work. Too much boost and the engine goes “BOOM!!!”
I'm with eltorito, get a Busa! No replacement for displacement.
Take your "mate" to the twisties. Otherwise, get yourself a big bore bike... you have no hope of taking him in any top speed runs, sorry. You might be able to beat him in the 1/4 if you are a good launcher, but once that thing gets winding out, you're lunch meat.
Monkeys can drive fast in a straight line... take him to the twisty roads.
