    The intake is a 2 1/2 inch tube to the carb which is just barely larger than the carb's intake diameter
    . It turns at a 30 degree angle and opens up to a 4" intake at a 30 degree angle. I tried to fit a 5" filter, but then I could not run an air box and you will want a box in wet, snowy conditions. The air box fits under the frame instead of between the rails for more space for the air cleaner to breathe.

    The radiators are PWR Oversize.

    Too bad...I would love to do it. I live in Mayland now and to drive 7 hours for a one day race is tough. We will be near or on Greenwood Lake depending on which lake is frozen well. Thanks for the heads up. NYTRO may be interested though. How many threewheelers do you think would be there?

    just keep looking at this thread, turned out awesome! One thing though, how is your coolant line touching the pipe? I didnt have clearance issues with my inframe, is it just because of the size of the top end? And I only have mine secured down on the front of the cradle with one mount, i dont have the mount attached at the spine/backbone. I do have the silencer attached at the back of the frame but the entire system is only attached in two spots on the bike if i recall correctly. Is that all you have on yours? Your pipe turned out amazing looking with the coating too!

    Thanks Jason. The problem is the size of the intake. The Puma cylinder uses a CR500 intake. It's huge. The pipe is just 1/2 inch too close. It will lay on it, but i reinforced the hose and heat taped it. I had to do that before so it should be fine. I have my pipe mounted the same exact way you do. Another problem point for me is the shroud. The short track shrouds are larger and get close to the pipe. I bent the radiator bracket to get it away from the pipe, but i will have to keep an eye on it. I may get a set of DC shrouds and cut them so they are away from the pipe. I had the pipe ceramic coated to retain the heat in the pipe. It would look way cooler all chromed out, but I was going more for performance than pretty here. Either way the pipe had to be coated. Racing in ice and snow means lots of moisture and rust if you don't protect it.

    If you come to Raffa's Chris i will race you with my SX! Just dont start yours k?
    I hope to be there. I have an SX too. We can race those.
