Wow, that's quite something. Be interesting to see what effect it has.

I remember reading an article recently about the 1980s Ducati 851 race bikes by a guy who raced one in Battle of the Twins. He mentioned that cutting a letterbox-size hole in the skirt at the front of the fuel tank on his Duc gained him 10mph through the speed trap on a long straight at one circuit.

Whether that was a beneficial ram-air effect, or solving some sort of negative aero effect that was concentrating hot air near the inlet mouths isn't clear.
