Average temperature in south central AZ in the summer is 118 degrees. Don't know where you would find any cold air. I seriously doubt this would work anyway, even at the north pole. And it would cause engine temperatures to be very unstable, either too cold or too hot. The engine has no cooling fins, so it doesn't have enough surface area for air cooling. Proper cooling means good heat transfer, and the walls of the water jacket do not have enough surface area to remove enough heat either. Scatterbrained idea that would destroy your engine.

That green bike looks pretty good except for the color. But it has more than an extended fork, it also has a raked frame. I had a bike that was raked out like that once, It handled so badly it was dangerous to ride.

I know this has been brought up a million times, and other bikes have proven it is not only possible but can work very well, and that is a single carburetor. Look at all the people getting rid of most of the intake system to make it simpler. Seems to me a single carb would be the ultimate simplicity modification. It works very well on the 4 cylinder Goldwing. My v twin Sportster runs fine with one carb, and so does my parallel twin Honda Rebel.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
