I removed the right radiator and welded on .090 soft aluminum angles



Drilled and added clip-nuts


Install fan and add Hi heat tape to act as a shroud
(may need to improve this with a larger shroud later?)


Drill and tap thermostat housing 1/8 pipe
one terminal goes to ground (not like you see in picture go to the frame or engine) the other wire goes to the negative fan wire


then supply ignition power to the positive fan wire
No relay needed
Now I just hope it warms up enough to try it out.
Are you trying to pull a ground off your T-stat housing? If you are you may think about grounding the housing.

You might want to check your fan to fuel tank clearance. My 4" Spal fan sat right on the rad (no need for a shroud) and it just barely cleared the fuel tank.

Just a thought....
not too much thought. Just those two mainly.

Haha. I didn't read your post about the fan install, just looked at the pictures. You even said you changed the wiring. Clearance with my 7 gal. IMS tank is tight with the fan mounted close to the radiator(fan mounted under the tabs, not on top). Still pretty tight with the stock tank.

Ahh your a picture looker too. got to read the text where i stated where to ground it. Was a laughable moment when I first tried to test it and figured out what was going on. (had taken picture earlier)
Good observation

Thanks I took a double take (look)
I have a small IMS 3.2 And got good clearance, but it is tight. might impede flow a bit?
Sounds like you have a non shrouded set up that works fine?
Good to know.
I have had thermostats stick open after getting up in the 230f temps
this ought to prevent that?

These T-stats are known to stick open.

Mounting the fan on the rad (or very close) is what most do here. Works perfect. Hontri actually mounted them on the front of the rads I think last time I checked.

I've been meaning to do a fan switch eventually to make it automatic. Otherwise I know when it's going to be running hot and leave it on for city driving, single track, and idling for pictures, etc.

Most people with DC systems float the ground as to not interfere with the frame grounded A/C system of the bike.
