    Default tweaking air intake

    yesterday after tunging my bike was giving me problem it was at high revs and it was like when u run out of petrol and the bike spurts in jerks...
    i had put new filter bottle [the rubber one which is placed above batter and the narrower portion undre seat]
    ...
    so the mechanic removed its outer mouth cap and the problem was solved ,... and bikes pick and speed came back

    what i want to know is that is it feasable to use some sort of dc fan to push air to the filter this way more pressure more air throught the filter and hope this will improve performance....

    what u guys thinks...

    Hmmm
    Interesting,
    There is that much space that a small DC fan can be fited there.
    But will it be practical or not?
    This would be the major question
    The blow of the fan that will be able to fit in that tube would be negligible because of its size so in my opinion it wont be successfull.
    One of the most difficult things in the world is to know how to do something, and to watch without comment, somebody else do it incorrectly.

    man at higher altitudes bike has difficulty breathing so i think that high air flow fan would correct this thus the right air fuel mixture would be achieved...?

    Thats Impractical.. Its Substitute Is Turbocharger..
    Putting DC Fan Would Never Do As It Can Never Achieve The Required Air Pressure.. And Plus, The Fan Would Be Working At A Constant Speed, Whereas You Wont Need That At Idling Or At Low Speeds.. So, You'll End Up In Wasting Time And Money With No Result..

    first of all air is not pushed to the filter, the engine sucks it , due to the vacum developed, and it can suck from anywhere, so fan cant do any good to ur bike, btw opening of air filter is always hidden to avoid dust to enter to it , so usually it is below seat or under side covers

    ^^ In the current case its beneath the seat and this upgrade will probabbly be a FAIL!
