DRZ400E Radiator fan?

I remember reading somewhere that you can add a small fan to the DRZ radiator for the E model. I don't think it was a Suzuki part but something kinda patched together...does this ring a bell with anyone?

Although now that I think about it I could look to see if the S parts fit the E

There we go, that's about what I need. Now I need to figure out how to control it automatically!

you can usually get a threaded thermo switch and tap it into the radiator....i`ve also seen adapters that go inline into the rad hose that the therm switch will screw into...can`t remember the company name trailtech/vapor or something??????????

I got my thermostat for my XRR here:

I have the SPAL puller on my XRR, runs about $25 on ebay. I tried a computer fan on the DRZE but that did not work well. I think the SPAL on a DRZ will work fine. Not sure about the space requirements though on your bike as my DRZ had an oversize tank.
