Hmm is that small radiator really enough to cool the engine. And where is the water reservoir?

Here is an older picture. Today the two radiators sit a little closer together.



It is needed to add a little reservoir. The one in the picture is only 40 cc and maybe a little too small. On my new upcoming sand rail I am trying out a 125 cc tank. Basically it is just a gas tank.
The two radiators have worked fine so far. On the new car I will run with only one, but a larger one. More will follow.

Just a little update we have not shown yet.
The carbs from RCMK are special made for exact these cylinders and we have experienced that the motor delivers more power using these carbs compared to other carbs. However this posed one chalkenge as they are without primer pump. We have solved this with some direct injection which is far more effective than the system we know as it injects gas directly into the throat so to speak..
If the motor is ordered with the air filter bridge (MTC103) the pump will be located on the air filter bridge as shown. If the motor is ordered without the air filter bridge as the driver wants to drive with two air filters, the primer pump will be located on a small plate on the carb. The primer pump is always included. Also in those already ordered.

Those are some of the nicest rims you can get. Just take a look at how the bead lock rings are integrated in the rim and supported by the spokes. They are Begitec 2H5T and 2V5T LAMBO.

That is a very well designed system! Yes the 929 carbs do work well! The 771 carbs with primer bulb and no choke work amazing as well on the air cooled set ups!

how come the primer is connected to the pulse tap? does it actually shoot gas into through the pulse port into the case?

do these work on the 5b? i guess it is so big the 5t is the best option. are there any pix of the actual kit mounted, exactly how someone would get it if they ordered one? the original 2 cylinder truck looks more tricked out then what is supplied in the kit.

We have exchanged the screw the holds the bottom place on the carbs in place with a 'hollow' screw because here is access to the throat. So yes.

It will fit a 5b but the roll bars are running directly where the spark plugs so some modification or another roll cage is needed.

Here are some pictures of the kit mounted in my 5Twin:

Very nice build and conversion. But there is nothing new on twin engines you can buy them anywhere for ages.

You only need to modify it to fit into the Baja. And that is what Saxtoft did a amazing job at.

I wonder if you could install a temp switch that could work to cut the ignition if things get too hot. This would be good insurance for if the water pump belt broke or it stopped working for some reason.
