Trailtech fan for wr450

Awesome that trailtech are doing this.
However, I sent an email asking about a fan for my 04. He said it will not likely work with earlier models.
I don't mean to sound negative, but if we pre-2012 owners will still have to build our own mounting brackets for the Trailtech fan, it's probably going to be just as easy and maybe cheaper to buy a 4" SPAL puller fan like i've seen done in different threads on here.

I sent in a request today and Brian said they are just waiting for a bike to fit and they are hoping to have something out this summer.
I wonder if the new wr250 fan wouldn't fit? anyone tried it yet?

You saw my post, here is the reply from Trail Tech on March 31, 2015
Sending them e-mails is working!
We are working on developing a fan kit for the 2011+ WR450’s. Hopefully we will have something to offer sooner than later. I will save your contact info and be sure to let you know when we have a kit available.
As far as working with an IMS tank and Yamaha rad braces, I’m not sure if these will work or not. We generally do not design products to work with other aftermarket accessories. We are focused on OEM fitment more than anything else.

I installed a waterproof muffin type on my '03 and it works GREAT!
My '07 came with an oversized Clark tank and I had seen posts where some guys had used those Spal four inch ones on them,but they are to thick to work with this bigger tank.
Last week I installed another four inch slim waterproofed muffin fan on it, It is only one inch thick and does not run with near the speed/power of the one on the '03 so am just hoping it will pull enough air to do the job. I think it will but will see once it really gets hot out.

I've used many Trail Tech products over the years and never had any issues that could not be fixed. Trail Tech has some of the best customer support also ... plenty of companies should/could take a page from their book! Just my opinion, usual disclaimers apply yada yada ...

The LCD / CPU looks like its not mounted in the best place, with the header so close.

I am giving the trail tech cooling fan a thumb's down for 2014 wr450s. The installation design & procedure is not good due to the fit between the frame, inner radiator bolt and the fan bracket. The bracket on the fan is the problem but also access to the inner bolt after installation is not good either and this is easily observered by the red marked line in the install instructions regarding 2.5 turns of the bolt.
A better design would have used a similar bracket, but allowed the fan to be "slip in" installed into the bracket after the bracket is installed seperately(and after the inner radiator bolt is tightened properly!!) with easy to access bracket to the fan fasteners. The fan itself is fastened to the bracket but the fan to bracket fasteners are as inaccesible as the inner radiator bolt once installed.
