A peltier effect device draws some serious current.

A big and heavy battery would be needed.

And would the head temp. be such that it would damage the peltier device itself.

Honestly, the engine is designed to be air cooled so a well placed electric fan and some shrouding should work well enough.
Adapting a muscle car trick to boost intercooler effectiveness...adding a small piece of dry ice between the fan and motor before each run would make a very effective, easy, cheap, light weight cooling system...not without it's drawbacks as well though.

Every option has it's tradeoffs.
