In my opinion (wich is most likely wrong), as long as the two tubes (the one for the gas air ram and the two big air rams for the airbox) have the same amount of pressure i dont think it could be an issue. Alot of older bikes dont even have air ram systems so i'm guessing you could totaly remove it, of course youll loose the extra HP going at 120 km/h... As long as you dont keep one part and remove the other or they arent really unbalanced, you should be good cuz of course you wouldnt want high air pressure going in and not have more gas and visversa.
I've seen a few people drill holes before the air filter and plug the two smaller hoses (going to the carbs) in the air box. that way they still get the air pressure coming from the two front vents...
Let me know what you're going to do, i'm still not sure what ill do with mine.... Someguy from customfighters(Brockzila) just tied the two smaller hoses to the big air ram hoses, i couldnt even tell until he told me thats what he did ...
