Has anyone ever tested with a larger intake volume

It sure seems restricted for a 1300cc engine. Wondering if anyone has ever done any sort of dyno testing with somehow enlarging the intake air volume. Not even sure it would be possible without some serious custom work.

Not saying 205hp isn't more than enough, just curious if there is anymore HP hiding somewhere. I'm sure I'm not the only one having this thought, just haven't been able to find any good articles.

I have a 800cc watercraft with larger intake volume than the Panigale. When I have it on the launch ramp tuning it and mash the throttle with the hood closed you can see the two large intake tubes constrict slightly and fiberglass panel they are mounted to flex inward. I'm only turning 7k RPM max too.

Seems odd to me that there is proper air flow all the time. Obviously the air velocity must be enormous at 11k RPM. I wonder what the CFD results showed when designing the intake tract. Would be cool to see.

I recall seeing posts about bigger air inlet channels that lead to the air box. Also there are some different throttle body intakes available. I hope I am using the correct term there for the last point. I know someone has fitted that stuff as I remember seeing the posts.

I am sure someone will pipe up with more info.

Thanks Brad. I was more curious about increasing the inlet channels more than any TB modification and if it's ever been experimented with on a dyno.

Thanks for that insight.

I like my warranty and have no intention of modifying the intake. It has more power than I will ever use so it would be pointless to try myself. But the last time I checked this was a discussion forum...and out of curiosity I asked the question. Geezus.

Dare I ask you to elaborate. Maybe I should design something new and then offer it for sale at some astronomically inflated price. That usually gets you "discussing".

You can run bigger tubes as I have on my bike but really a tank modification is needed as well .

Interesting. Do you have any pictures of the tubes? I'm assuming the tubes are forward of the steering tube? Have you done a dyno comparison to see if it made a difference?

No comparison . They look better is the best comparison I have

That does look cool. Haha.


The choke point past the steering still remains...if it's a choke point at all, I have no idea. I wonder what increasing flow all the way through the intake would do.

You really need to dick around with air box if you want it to work well . The air flow with those tubes is as good as it gets it really won't improve HP by much .
