Yes. Hey I was wondering is the intake tube behind the radiator?
There's no real intake tube. The air just flows from under the tank (or tank cover on the XSR), and into a funnel at the top of the airbox. When you split the airbox, there's a regular automotive-style air filter that separates the two halves of the chamber. But definitely no "ram-air" effect...

It’s weird I followed the airbox and I can see it go to the back of the radiator by the fan maybe it’s for something else..

I haven't gotten that deep into it to see. There could be shrouding that guides the air under the tank, maybe. You can find all kinds of videos on YT where guys tear these bikes down...
