the transfer ports off of the crankcase are covered up a little by the cylinder and I need to go back and match them up I didn't want to do that until I was sure it would run this way. So now that I know it will I'll take it apart and do the grinding to get them to match. I still don't like the intake and may make another one and not use stainless steel what a pain that stuff is to gas weld with out the proper equipment.
I've found that the bike is super quiet all I hear is the intake and with the big filter its a little quieter than than the stock one I think.
I think the cool factor went up a notch and as far as I know no one else has tried this. if a guy wants to do the ram effect all are looking for it is possible with the carb facing forwards. I'll be happy and run a filter I don't need a rock going inside the engine and doing some custom polishing and porting of the cylinder and piston.
