Intake removal??

Hey all, so I'm making an abomination of a streetfighter out of a wrecked RC51. As far as modding the intake and headlights, I was going to unbolt the intake at the frame and put an old school circle light in front of it closer to the handlebars.

All bashing aside, will this affect the air box performance too much? I'm not going for a performance beast here, I just would like to know if I will run too lean or pop all the time. I'm not sure if it will create a low vacuum zone behind the light.

My other option was to fab a snorkel pipe to bend around the side of the headlight for better flow and keep the same plenum length.

If this thread already exists, please point me in the right direction. I couldn't find much.

I'm open to any suggestions and thank you in advance
