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?

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:

http://www.etrailer.com/dept-pg-Radi...ermostats.aspx

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.

Bruno,
Where did you buy this motor?
Did you actually install it on a 400E?

I am looking around and not catching a lead where I can buy this.
Any help would be appreciated.

I will be installing a second fan into my 2001 KTM LC4 640 E and have a new in box fan identical to this. When I do the installation I will make a posting thread. Other posts in ADV under Thumpers have already posted very good descriptions.

I think the fan is standard on 525 models too, so go talk to the parts man in your area. Good luck.
