    Just a WAG (wild ass guess) but would it be to cause a rotation of the air passing through?

      Yes, I seem to remember seeing those before. It's suppose to swirl or mix the fuel charge as it enter combustion chamber. I thought there was some claim to more horsepower, but my from my memory, it was a gimmick, didn't do much of anything.

              It will make women want you. Make men want to be like you. With that on your bike, you could bring world peace, end hunger, and stomp out racism. Other than that it's pretty much useless.

                      Is Dukes ported manifold a "thing of the past"?

                          Curt aka Blackice on the old forum use to offer ported intakes. Not sure if Duke ever offered any from what I remember but possibly wrong.

                            It is possible, Duke does everything else carb related lol, Curt quit many years ago but he did mine.

                              I can do the porting on your manifold. I'm out of town for a month or so, but if your interested then PM me.

                                There is a lot more to porting a manifold then just opening up the ports. It needs to flow good with keeping the air velocity high.

                                I ported my new one but I couldn't get it as smooth as the old ported one I took off. That thing was done really well.
