Yes, but how does he cool the rear cylinder?

Two strokes are a lot easier to work on than four storkes!

at first, he didn't really, as i'm sure you know, they're air cooled cylinders but from what i hear (couldn't find in the blogs and such) that he switched them to water cooled kits, and hooked up a radiator. then i also heard, that the area he lives in, never really gets above 75, so over heating is not an issue. don't know what the real answer is, could be both. lol
