The bike that Andy from Splodge Racing was riding was bought from John Moriarty at the end of the 2002 season, it has ram air, the ram air box is from Shaun at R&S Performance. It has been modified to take flatslides as well as CV`s. John was able to do late 53 second laps at Mallory (before Edwinas)BHP on it was about 70/72bhp.
After my leg breaking incident at Mallory in April 2002( was in the same race as john on that day, think he came 1st or 2nd, I was lying in 5th on the last lap, then got t-boned, was doing bang on 56 second laps) I got a new modified box from Shaun and as I only had CV`s I had some metal bell mouths made localy, when we put the bike on the dyno at Shauns, the mid range was amazing compared to no air box & roughly chopped CV`s.
Although on the dyno there was no improvement to the top end, just by directing the cooling fan tubes from the raidiater to the ram air inlet made a big difference to the graph. Did a load of other work to it as well NWS linkages, ZXR6 calipers etc ready for when my leg was healed.
Never got to ride it as in June this year John gave up riding the aprilla Millie & sold it & bought my ZXR400, still do not know why I sold it to him
, but it did make Cathy, my wife happy, have added a couple of pics of john on it at Mallory this season, showing the ram air inlet in the front of the fairing.
