I'm in the UK and I've just fitted a second fan, an OEM one from another 950. I have had some overheating issues when abroad last year in hot conditions and slow moving traffic in Poland, Austria and Italy. I took the bike into a dealers when in Austria and they reckoned it was an air lock. After raising the front and burping the system; cleaning the rad fins with compressed air the bike still overheated in Italy.
I'm going to Morocco later on this year and I've incorporated a switch into the fan install so I can flick it on and off as and when required.
I glued foam to the fan where it would come into contact with the radiator.
Also used foam and cork type washers for the ties.
I had to trim a little of the fan shroud as it was interferring with the radiator hose.
Fan in place.
Took power source from my new aux fuse box install.
Put an extra relay in the power source to the fan.
Switch wired and fitted.
