Question Carbon Ram Air ducts

Has anyone purchased and installed the Carbon Ram air ducts?

I originally purchased the ram air duct covers but didnt like the way they sat a little higher on the bike, and also thought that being an MV and my pride and joy, it deserved to have the authentic products spent on it.

Vesuvio Racing are offering these which look good but i'm not sure if the larger air flow will cause any ill-effect???

Can anyone shed a little more light on this product, the quality, fitment, install, and performance +/-

Thanks
Ash

Can you tell me if your set was purchased from Vesuvio? and what the build quality and fitment is like?

I don't think I've noticed anything. Sure looks good tho. Are they supposed to allow more air in? (is it even actually a ram air system? i didn't think so but don't really know).


I got the mv corse ones I think. Not cheap at over a grand each. But they look gooooood.....

Thanks Colin,
They dont seem to be very cheap anywhere, so I think it would be in my best interest to try and source an MV Corse set myself. Even at the added expense at least i'll be assured about the quality and fitment.

Hey Colin,
would you know whether or not the MV Corse carbon ducts are still available and if so, where from?

Thanks

Yep Look at my avatar pic and my album. I didn't notice any fitment problems. Judge for yourself.

Surely its the diameter of the throttle bodies and the valve size combined with the duration of inlet valve opening that dictates these things, as the air tubes do not act as would a pressurised system.
Are folk also forgetting there is an air-filter in the way too??


As for this statement and to quote Vesuvio :-

"The tubes are LARGER so more air will flow towards your engine which will thereby gain a few more poneys"



With the greatest of respect I am at a loss to see where and how this statement is based?

Cuz that is absolute crap!!


The facts are quite clear, in so much as the MV Agusta airbox is NOT pressurised so therefore it wouldn't matter a flying fuck if the air tubes were the size of the Grand Canyon. it still wouldn't make any more power.

That's a fact!!
