That should keep the engine cooler but might overheat your legs. Fits in there pretty neat.
Just the left one,LOL!! The reason I'm concerned about it is the PO must have overheated it and took the temper out of the rings. I did a top end job on it last fall and you could still see the crosshatch in the jug but the compression was down to minimum spec.

Have you considered switching to synthetic oil. It should give you a slight decrease in operating temperature.
The engine, clutch and tranny all run in the same oil, so I'd need to find out what the synthetic might do to the centrifugal clutch. Suzuki says straight 40 wt year round.
