    Just an update if anyone remembers my POS build...sucks that all pics are lost!

    Tried uploading here, but it never works for me!

    Here is a horrible video that my wife took after I got it running from sitting all summer. This is basically a winter project so I don't get to touch it during the summer.

    Runs even better now...cleaned the carb after it started to run terrible after this video.

    I also bought a new clutch...the noise at the end is how bad the old clutch was chattering. This one is from a Scrambler 400 whereas the old one was from a 250 Trailblazer.

    Get ready to tilt your head after the first lap...

    Are you using the stock pipe from the snowmobile or did you come up with an alternative?

    It is the stock pipe but with one small fabbed section to rotate it so it would fit the frame.

    Silencer is an FMF with spark arrestor with some mods to fit it to the sled pipe.

    This is titled and registeted as a 1981 Honda Odyssey and I wanted to be able to run it at Allegheny National Forest...actually it's legal to run anywhere in PA.

    Being that this is a fan cooled engine, does anyone think it's necessary to add electric fans?

    I really wasn't thinking and I bought 2 electric fans and fabbed up a mount to be able to blow down on the cylinders.

    Now, I'm thinking that with the cooling shrouds on, my electric fans won't really do much. At the very least, 2 fans seem like overkill since the purpose of the shroud is to conduct air past the jugs.

    I was thinking to possibly use one just in case I'm moving really slow and want to pull in some cooler air.

    Any thoughts on this?
