Question for RC51 Owners

I've started modding my 02 RC and I'm wondering if anyone has ever removed the ridges from the front of the air box, just before the air hits the filters. I'm sure they're there for a reason, but is it performance or is it noise reduction?

Pics if interested

You won't notice a difference either way...

theoretically laminar flow is affected (like the dimples on a golf ball), but you will never feel a difference.

Personally I left mine alone, there are way more real mods to spend your time working on that really will make appreciable differences
