I like the way the GSVR has the rear seat fairing "hanging" in mid-air...
I can't see from the image of the RCV where the ram-air inlets are... Does it go thru the frame or like the CBR1000RR above the rad?

based on this image, i'd say the ram air is that small hole in the frame.



can't see it actually being that small though.

There's a scoop on each side (black) below the hole in the nose.

right. but those are just scoops. which aren't even on the new bike; this bike is from what, 02?
there should be evidence of a routing, inlet or a "hole" in the frame to channel the air to the air box. that's what we were talking about..

That hole is quite small thats for sure. I happened to be looking through the Rossi biography and I noticed a pic that shows the hole not connected to anything with the fairing on..so I might have to rule it out..
doesn't look like it for sure but what about the lower and bigger hole? looks blocked by the tank, or something tho.

any chance of getting larger images of the stripped bikes jaybo?

yes, the rc pic i posted is at least 2 years old. it's all i could find with a decent closeup of the front end like that.

think i got it. it's the larger hole in the frame, behind the small round one.
look just behind the repsol R at the edge of the fairing.

if you google "rc211v chassis" in images, you get a lot of very old cafe style racer pics. bimoto pics to be exact.

thanks CG.
quote from the site.
Large triangular opening in upper frame spar is intake port to airbox. (This ain't your kid's run-of-the-mill Playstation 2.)
