    My buddy swears by the Odyssey batteries. He says they have amazing cycle life. I'm going to try it next time I get a battery since I run a lot of electrics.

    I have one of the Sycle (SP???) that I used with a big bore motor that was not quite enough. The owner of the company sent a brand new replacement that I have not used. I think I paid $160.00 or more. I'll gladly send it to someone to try and if you like it send me $80.00 or so.... Not needing to sell it, but thought someone may want to give it a try????

    So it looks like the tusk grip heaters draw around 36 watts
    Correct me if i am wrong on this.
    I have an hid light that is only 35 watts and 2 6 watts total smaller lights, so high beam is only 41 watts.
    So i should be good in the wattage game.

    Does anyone know Mark Sutton? I need to get in touch with him ASAP. I sent him an email about the oil cooler a few days ago when I first noticed mine was cracked and I haven't heard back from him yet. I fixed it with JB weld, but that is starting to crack now too. I just slapped some zipties on it today to keep it as tight to the bracket as possible until I can figure out what to do. Right now I'm looking at two options:

    1. Find someone to weld the existing oil cooler. Pros: cheaper, possibly faster. Cons: I've got a ton of JB weld on that thing now.....what's the best way to clean off JB weld? Sandpaper? Also, I have to find someone to weld aluminium, which may be pretty hard for me (I think) as I will be in Guatemala tomorrow.

    2. Get someone to ship me a new Jagg oil cooler that has already been welded. Pro: easier, better quality, can get bypass switch shipped out as well. Cons: expensive, time consuming.

    Here's a picture of where the cracks have formed:

    [​IMG]

    And here is a picture of the JB Weld-ed version.

    [​IMG]

    Only the top lug is cracked now, and it hasn't gone all the way around the JB weld, just the bottom half. I had a really fun time doing this in the courtyard of my hotel in downtown Oaxaca....

    I'm crossing into Guatemala tomorrow and will probably spend a few weeks there improving my Spanish at one of the language schools. I have $$$ for whoever can give me a hand......haha!

    They're 110.00 to replace the cooler or have it welded for 25.00 bucko's..
    Did you crash and break the cooler? or is there some kind of bind on it making the fasteners crack?
    Looks like you bead blasted it..

    Anyone have a pic of those Tusk hippo-hands mounted on their bike? Will they work with handguards installed?

    I moved my controls in a little today so that I have room to wear my snowboarding gloves. They should be plenty warm, but the loss of dexterity sucks...

    Hippo hands work best with hand guards since they provide a frame for the hippo hands.

    Take 5 minutes and by-pass that fucker.... Millions of miles have been ridden on these motors with no cooler at all. Your ambient temps are ok, not like racing in Baja in August. Keep your ride of a lifetime going and forget about the cooler. I'm WAY jealous of your ride, BTW!!!!

    EDIT: Man your in mexico.... Zip tye, wire tie, or use a coat hanger inside a piece of fuel line. Wrap it all the way around the cooler and tie it off to the cooler frame. Improvise... Maxicanize!!!!! Just keep on riding!
