Hey...do you guys think it would help keep my bike run cooler if I install an extra fan to my radiatior? I have a few ball bearing fans that I was thinking maybe I can tie wrap to the radiator and wire it up. (Just a thought) All opinion's are welcomed.

Your fan idea was something I'm thinkin about doin. But never got around to it. Let us know how it turns out if you go thru with it.

My fan turns on at 222*F and I was thinking the same thing when I first got my bike, let us know how it turns out.

Personally I wouldn't bother. The engine is designed to run pretty hot. If you are having serious overheating issues I'd fiddle with the water/coolant/wetter mixtures first. I personally don't think that honda would sell it if it couldn't take the temps.

The motor is designed to run at real high temps without wear or damage. The ECU will shut the motor off (260*F i believe) far before its at risk of overheating damage. But that fan idea does sound sweet as long as u can secure it on there nicely. I rigged my fan up to my high beam switch to i can control the temps manually ...

The bad catch about an extra fan is the extra juce that will get sucked off
the battery to get it running

Its bad enough that when are at a red light while the high beam is on & the
fan kicks in if the bike god forbid shuts off for whatever reason it might take you a few trials to get it to start

The best remedey for this is to turn your high beam off untill you get moving again

Motor damage is not really a factor till temps over 180. An extra fan would only be effective in traffic. At speed there is no need for a fan. Plus like Moe said it draws extra power from an already weak system. These bikes weren't designed for stop and go traffic, they were built to run and run hard.

My bike came factory-equipped with an adjustable temperature control. It's a little rubber-coated swivel thingy mounted on the right clip-on that you twist open to cool the bike down :) sorry, couldnt resist

jax, how long are you sitting for it to reach high 240s? and what kind of temps you riding in? the highest i've ever seen my 05 is like 235 or so and that was in 100 degree temps, and sitting for about 15-20 mins or so
