04 600rr fan not working.

Hey guys. Just bought my first honda cbr600rr. Shes an 04 with 3200 original miles. Story goes an older man bought this bike with intentions to track it. Bought the repsol race fairings and did track it. Well he decided he wanted it to be street legal again so instead of switching back that plastics he cut holes in the race fairings and added after market headlights. The wiring looks decent but once again its my first honda. The fuse box is located above the stator which I also thought were under the seat. Basically bike hits 230 fan never comes on. I read about 27 other threads before registering on here to actually post the question: how do i test my fan? I heard people saying to run a wire from the battery to the fan but i am not that electrically inclined and have no clue how to do that. First time ever having this problem. Never happened on the gsxr or the r6. Just looking for some suggestions. Thanks ahead guys.

Btw im in chicago but ina few months im bringing the bike back home to arizona. Definitely need the fan fixed.

Just added a fan switch. She turns on and off just fine. Just not when its supposed to without the switch.So assuming I hit the switch when the bike gets to 200-210 she shouldnt go above 220 correct?

Check your thermostat.. It looks like it either disconected or toasted...

The switch is a good Idea... Until one nice summer day you forget to look down for 15 minutes and BAM!... No more engine...

Fix it!!!

I don't see how thermostat condition can prevent fan from starting

If the thermostat is not telling the bike its at the temperature where the fan should kick in, the fans not going to kick in.

I'd run through the wiring and make sure everything is connected properly. I just looked up the parts list for your thermostat. If something is broken, parts are all decently priced. Much cheaper to fix properly than the alternative of messing your bike up.

Thermostat tells the fan to kick on. If there's something wrong with the thermostat or sensor, fan don't kick on, engine overheats.

Its actually easy coz you proved that the fan is actually functioning... But the bike is not telling the fan when to kick in...

Thermostat is purely mechanical, it opens and closes based on expansion of its components and doesn't tell the bike anything about it...I think u r talking coolant temperature sensor. I had a quick glance at the 07 wiring diagram (which should be very similar), and it shows that sensor connected to to the cluster, the ecu and the exhaust valve. Since your cluster is showing high Temps and fan is not kicking in, I think u can- for now- rule out the ECT sensor as well. Which leaves u to the wiring to/from the fan motor. You should usually start with the fan motor fuse and relay, which op didn't mention anything about. He also mentioned that this problem happened right after he installed aftermarket headlights, the kinda job that usually fries fuses and relays. I have my bet on them. If that doesn't do it or something is quickly fried again, I would start rethinking my headlight connection, or that they might be drawing too high or too low current compared to original and some modification is needed to balance that out...hypothetically speaking off course.... 1c 1c 😁
