Fitting the BDCW Auxiliary fan kit

Just about to go out in the garage and fit the kit which arrived last week.

I remember seeing a thread here some months back showing fitting tips and how reach the electrical connects using a bent coat hanger wire. I cannot find the thread even though I spent 25 minutes searching.

can anyone help me?

Other question is, should I also consider fitting a lower temperature stat for running off road in sand in a hot (African) climate?

Perhaps this is the thread you were seeking :

By the way, the very best way to search ADVrider is to use Google
Advanced Search restricted to the ADVrider domain, like this :

http://www.google.com/advanced_searc...lr=&as_qdr=all


and use as few words in your search as possible when you type in what you're searching for;
for example it took me about 1 1/2 minutes to find the fan install thread, and I used the words
"Black Dog fan install". The more words you use in the search field, the more incorrect results you can get,
which seems strange but it does work that way. The idea is to use ONLY the words which really matter,
which in this case were "Black Dog" and "Fan" and "install". If you also included "950" or "KTM" in the search
field you'd get a lot of irrelevant search returns.


I suggest you save the link to Google Advanced Search which I provided above. It will
be useful the next time you search.

Next time use Google to search, the site's search engine is horrible.

I installed the "Adventure Machines" Rally fan, like in the above post. The Coat hanger trick did not work for my big hands so I loosened the rad and was then able to get my hand into the clip to do what was required.
