Need a little help...I put a K/n air filter, HMF Utility pipe and 165 jet kit in the foreman...last weekend we snorkel my machine and its running extremly hot....We came out of the air box with a 1.5" to a 2" pvc the rest of the way for a snorkel...All vent lines are ran...When I hop on the machine and run it around the yard it running hot....Fan does cut on....Check the spark plug and it looks to be running fine with the tip looking like a paper bag...Any suggestions should I back out the air fuel screw...Right now I have it set out 2 full turns exactly...Thanks for any help...

put a fan override switch on...easy thing to do, i did mine after i got my leg burnt from riding all day and it not cutting on until i was in the last mud hole and then it decided to kick on and splash hot water all over my leg, so i put one on...really easy to do for the most part, when you arent in mud or water just flip the switch on and let it cool down some and then when u get rdy to go in water or mud hit it off

I had a NGK iradium plug in it...I also backed it out 2 1/2 turns and rode it some saturday and the engine is still a little warm...I think that I might go back to the stock plug....I need to also put a manual override switch on the fan to cool the engine when riding on the trails...Also when i rode yesterday it was close to 100 degrees in NC...Live in Raleigh NC...
