good points..guess I was thinking they designed it with some thought towards functionality..sure as Hell couldn't be for looks like some big old appendage eyesore!

Air moves just like water believe it or not , it likes a straight run that's what keeps Boyesen in the business right.
RIP Eyvind Boyesen .

Yea noticeably more snap hey.

I've used the X wings and also made copies of Xwings and they work .
He had a sure shot or a power shot or something for the accelerator pump in carbs too they worked really well.

All my CR500's had them , I also raised the exhaust port 2 degrees , pointed the transfer ports at each other and drilled a tiny tiny hole in the bridged port of the exhaust port to lube the port so as not to snag a ring, added a heavier flywheel and they were boss trail bikes man ,had 3 of them .

This should probably get its own thread. But...
The air box on the FXDR is hideous. Is that motor making more power? Is there an advantage over any previously designed air cleaner? As barneyboy said. Maybe the MOCO could have put a hyper charger on it.

I wondered about the effects of removing the plastic from the inside. I wondered if the MOCO actually did some air flow design. After looking at the scoop on the inside bottom. It looked like it was to direct air to the bottom and back of the filter. The bad part was that the bottom of my filter was clogged with oil. No air going into it anyway. Now I have run the vent tube out of the bottom to under the frame
Did you rig that breather bypass with those rubber tubes that lead right into the intake? If you bought them, Could you please send a link?
