That came out great! Makes me want to get aggressive on cleaning mine up a bit.

I've found that the cold air outweighs the radiant heat from the exhaust coming in, even in the winter

Well, I planned on taking the rig on the Ouray trip this past weekend, but had a carburetor issue that I needed to resolve. So, I rebuilt the carb and took the rig on Hidden Valley Road in Pike National Forest and ran low-range for the first time to give her a real-world test run on some of the wash-outs down there.

Running like a champ now. Rig does great with the OME lift. Kids had a great time.

Nice clean looking carb. Did you polish that Idle Cutoff Solenoid?
