    I picked up this car a couple months ago and have been making a few changes that have been taking my time, biggest one is a new cooling system, the previous owner moved the radiator from above his head down next to the engine, no air flow and fan on all the time, also blocks access to the engine. my plan is to run this car this year, then next summer I would like a bigger engine so more cooling was in order.

    I got a big radiator, it's 3 core and 35" X 11", I moved it to the back to make it some what of a wing. second change was to the air box, I am mainly a sand guy, the stock filter just does not seem adequate so I retained the stock airbox, I figure the engineers at Suzuki made it the size it is for a reason, no need to reinvent, just make it better!
    I added 2 TRX250R UNI filters to the inlets of the airbox, used some ABS 45 degree pipe fittings, formed them using boiling water, made some flanges, some screws, ABS cement and done. I also have some of those adaptors being made using a 3D printer.
    I'll post some photos later, if interest I'll see how much the guy wants to make more.

    So anyway, first trip out to Glamis, after the first minute of blasting up and down the wash, it seemed that the Trans was gone, just gone? engine seemed fine, scratch my head for a bit, started pulling bolts out of the clutch cover, then it dawned on me, check the simplest thing first, well that was it, they put a hydraulic clutch actuator on it, one end is bolted to the frame and put it in a bind preventing the clutch from returning.
    Fixed, well at least it's better.

    then, blasting the wash some more, there is a mis in the engine, not sure if it's a short or what also the starter keeps engaging, not sure if that is the one way bearing going out or if it's electrical.

    Parked it and run the old reliable pilot for the rest of the weekend, well it did have one issue, but that's another story.

    Sorry if this is a bit long winded, I'll be working on those things and plan to hit Dumont the weekend before thanksgiving.
