Another view of the front fairing of Arthur's FF. You can see the tube Arthur added at the bottom. Also note the fabric used to protect the legs of the rider from the heat of the engine. Question: how does this influence the cooling of the engine? Arthur replies: "It's a water cooled engine, so what the heat shields do is funnel air passing through the rad a bit further past the front pair of cylinders. Keeps my legs from getting too hot. I fitted these after I found too much heat on my legs. The indication from the temperature gauge didn't change."
