Default Has anyone tried this?

So I started tearing the bike down today and noticed that the air intake system is different then how my CBR600 was. The front of the frame has chambered ports to flow the air into the airbox.

Has anyone tried polishing/ smoothing out the inside of those chambers to increase airflow and saw results?

I hope I didn't burst anyones secret trick lol

I would on my race bike but it would make it not super stock legal. On the street bike i don't use all of its power anyway so it doesn't make enough of a difference for me to spend the time doing it on the street bike.

IMO, you don't gain much from doing this because the air filter is right behind the inlet, which restricts/slows down the air flow. Changing to a high flow filter like K&N is easier.

A " high flow" filter won't help if the neck and snorkel are restrictive.... I didn't bother messing with the frame, I just cut a big effin hole in the airbox
