Default Interesting...

Does this also mean that it is better to exit a turn in a higher gear at a lower RPM than in a lower gear with a higher RPM? Assuming of course that torque is available at the lower RPM.

Default Re: De-restricted part deux

Hey guys, please make sure the Mille R is de-restricted before the track test. For the '02, that requires a restrictor to be removed from the exhaust, air inlet restrictors to be removed from the fresh air ducts going to the airbox, a plate under the air filter to be removed, and a new FI chip to be installed. I'd like to see what it pulls like then. The Road Racing World comparo left it restricted, which doesn't really make much sense.

Default Re: De-restriction needed?

Hello MO.



Just when I was about to put down the cash and finally buy that 998 duc, I read about the MilleR......Now I am really confused. The same dealer has two MilleRs (one yellow and one that wierd flat black) just sitting there. When is that comparo coming?! I have an itch that really needs scratching.....I was gonna buy this week.........

Default Question to Robert Pandya Regarding Ram Air

Don't know if Robert is still around to answer this but here goes:

There's a pretty heated discusion on http://www.apriliaforum.com/ regarding wether the Mille has Ram Air or not. It's becoming rather technical but there isn't a clear resolution yet.



It's clear the bike has forward air intakes but the way the air is fed into the air box isn't in classic Ram Air style. I'm simplifying this a bit mainly because I have no idea what I'm talking about.



Bottom line:

Ram Air or no Ram Air?

Ha ha, caught ya!

Here's a great technical article on the 98 Mille. If this article does not convince you, I don't know what will.

Default Re: Question to Robert Pandya Regarding Ram Air

It's not a ram-air intake in the sense of using forced air to "supercharge" The intake. It's a cold air induction to get the coolest possible air into the motor, and to point the intake sound forward while the exhaust sound points backwards. The system may allow for some pressure to build, but not in the same proportion as the system built onto many competitor products.
