Besides the obvious conversation piece advantage, a clear scoop is like the glass ceiling on a greenhouse, it lets the Sun's rays in to heat the carbs for better vaporization of the fuel. It converts the gas to greenhouse gas while it is still in the float bowl. If the throttle sticks you can see it, if you didn't notice otherwise. I'm sure there's others. It is interesting to see the fuel backwash if there is any from reversion or being sloshed or sucked up the bowl vents or bleeds. A clear scoop and a GoPro sounds like fun, but then .... nothing stops a person from putting the camera inside a regular scoop.
