Cooling fan available for WR 400/426/450?

Is there an electric fan for the WR radiators such as the one that KTM's can use? I would really like to add one for piece of mind especially as I do more slow technical trails and hit the dunes more regularly where sand can really heat up your bike.
Anyone added a fan?

I have also been thinking about a fan. does the stock stator have enough juice? I was thinking of putting in a switch to turn off the headlight and use the juice on the fan when needed, It seems like a good idea when on tight trails or gnarly hill climbs. Also has any one wrapped the header under the radiator, it seems as if alot of heat must transfer?
I'm not sure if the stator puts out enough juice. I've found that my stator won't even power my horn at idle, but once I give it just a little bit of throttle (at least 2000 rpm) the horn works really well.
I've also thought about the header putting heat into the right side radiator because it sits about an inch directly above the radiator and the head piper gets cherry red with heat sometimes.

is that KTM fan?
Hello to all from Spain.
Cooling fan for WR
Othervise, very nice, all three setups.
I have one installed, driven in rain, washed with pressure cleaner, still working OK.
Computer fan doesn't water proof. Is it a problem?
It just doesnt have the rpm's as the moto specific fan does.
