And putting the intake on the front would make sense if you could put the air box and plenum where the headers used to be.

It would exacerbate the heat problems coming off the headers and roasting your ass, but isn't that a problem we could get around by now with shielding and header wraps or coatings?

Yamaha tried that on the YZF-450 only lasted one or two years before they went back.

Uhm, the last time I saw MotoGP bikes, they have undertails, too. Along with low exhaust.

Yup those run both, the ducati's run a 2-1 pipe under the tail basically.

Of couse im sure those exhaust systems are feather light so there wouldnt be much of a difference. Im sure engineers somewhere working for ducati or whoever to minimize the downsides to undertail exhaust

Like others - i love the look of the undertail exhaust and having less than 10,000 miles under my belt I don't even dream of thinking I could tell a performance diff. Understand why they'd go that way though...

Definately true guys, undertail is way better for looks, and yah never thought about how the placement keeps it safe for a crash, dam that would of been a bummer on top of everything else on my slide.
