For me ram air is definitely needed, and my bike takes good advantage of it. Even better when the air is cold and dry. You could go without it, but for me the difference is obvious and I would always use it.

so, for me, just tooling along to work at around 70 - 85 mph, its no biggie to not have the ducts?

let me explain correctly.... I seal where the ducts conect with chassis and where the airbox conects with chassis with duct tape.

hope that explains your question...

Good work, I do the same thing. What about the water drain holes in the airbox?

Having the ducts installed helps route cooler air that's not heated by the engine, to your airbox. :shifty

So if we modded our track fairings and had bigger ram tubes to catch more air we would get more power ?

Probably not. Pressure and volume are not the same thing, and are not always complimentary to each other.

The location and size is what determines the pressure created in the airbox.

I saw a beautifull K9 superbike, from a famous racer that roadracing world was testing and the ducts where very smoth, very straight, also the fairing intakes where very smooth, like a bell.......
must see....

Stupid question- in a recent get off on my GSXR, I cracked one of the ducts. Does anyone see a problem with simply using adhesive to glue it back together or do I have replace it entirely?

Figured I'd ask ...

You may have problems finding an adhesive that keeps it held together but it should otherwise be OK. Note that you don't want any flakes breaking off and flying into the airbox. Depending on where the crack is, duct tape on the outside would work. Try to keep the inside surfaces clean. Having said all that, they're not that expensive. Can't you find a used one?
