Default Re: intake pipe

Yeah i am using the same size tube. But my theory is the longer the intake tube the more chance the air has to make a homogenous mixture with the fuel/oil. The more the fuel can be vaporised (in spray form rather than wet) the better the combustion should be. I am thinking this way as I remember seeing the high rise carby setups on the older v8's this was used to increase the volume of the air inlet manifold. I read somewhere along time ago that the ideal setup for a car is to have the inlet manifold approx. 80% of the cylinders capacity. I was just simply trying to apply the same princibals with my motorised bike. Not trying to state any gosbel just throwing an idea out there.
