so everyone claims 2 inch is desired for engine air, well i have a g1 xmr, and was just gonna ad on to do my snorkels. a 1.5 inch abs pipe fits into the stock snorkel perfectly then i had went 1.5 to the pod and 2 inch out of the pod. this harm anything.

the factory air inlet isn't even 2 inches so why do people think 2 inch is so important, when the stock xmr snorkel inlet isn't 2 inch

I think it's more of a "more is better than less" type of thing. That way you KNOW youe engine is getting all the air it's ever going to want or need. I think 1.5" is good enough on a stock bike, even slightly modified iy should be fine. I wouldn't think you would need full 2" unless you're running a fully built motor.

The longer of a pipe you're going to get more resistance. It's kind of like a wire. A longer wire will require a thicker gauge even at the same voltage and amps. I think doing 2" will just be insurance that you're big enough and not getting any restriction by going smaller and longer.
