  1. I think blowing the air out through the other (unused radiator) is the way to go. After all the radiator is a heat exchanger, and a heat exchanger works much better with air blowing through it as opposed to just sitting there in stagnant air. Simple physics, no?
  2. Does anyone know how many CFM the OE fan pulls? I pulled two fans from an old computer I have at home and was going to hook them both up together, they are about 4" square each. I should be able to attach them with some zip ties through the radiator fins. The previous owner installed heated grips on my bike, which I have never used, and probably never will, so I was thinking about using the heated grip switch to manually turn on and off the computer fans. Plus there is already power run to that switch. So my thought is riding around, bike reaches 200 F, turn on computer fans. One of two things will happen. Bike will stay around 200 F and drop off when I start moving. Or temp will continue to climb to the point at which the factory fan will switch on. This is gonna be a fun project, and should be totally reversible if it doesnt work.
  3. http://cgi.ebay.com/25-Nidec-Beta-V-12-Vol...1QQcmdZViewItem I am thinking about mounting one of these to the inside of the other radiator. Hard wire to the battery through a simple fuse and toggle switch. Its only .11 amp so no relay would be needed. When I install the new fan I will look at this for clearance. Has anyone tried this before? Mayby I will make a DIY.
  4. So, just out of curiosity, what is the next step? Bigger radiators? thermo switch that turns the fan on sooner? Addition of a second fan on the right radiator? or a manual fan on/off switch? Enquiring minds want to know.... PS my new fan is on order, should arrive late this week.
  5. I think I am going to take the $23 gamble and be 6th gen guinea pig #3 I will let you know how it goes
  6. Has anybody tried this on a 6th gen yet? is it the same RC51 fan that I would need? Bike Bandit lists the 2001 VFR fan as part number 67875 and the 2002 VFR fan as part # 1470439 Please help because I would realy like to try this mod on my 02.
