Now can someone explain how a pod works better than
an air box?
If the box or air filter surface area is not under sized,
there should be higher pressure in the box when the bike
is in motion.
Heck, just open your helmet over 70mph and it's more difficult to breathe.
I'd really rather not go through a whole jetting procedure.
