    Reaming holes for ventilation

    I didn't like how hot my motor was getting, so I bought a heat sink and started reaming holes. It works!
    Anyone else have any venting/cooling ideas and pics?

    It looks good, but I say bigger is better, like a big 1-1/4" hole in the windshield.

    My holes never seem to turn out that clean.

    You could try one of THESE. If you put it on the roof, it would dump air right onto the motor.
