Just fitted a 4 inch Spal "pull" fan to the back of my RHS rad, has made a massive difference to running hot in slow traffic, the bracket is made from lightweight alloy sheet fitted to the rad mount bolt and the rad shroud bolts.:lol:

What did you do to make the fan turn on? Did you wire it to a switch or what?

Yes, wired to a switch mounted on the handlebars, I have a trailtech fitted so can tell the temp and just switch it on if it starts to heat up in traffic etc

I actually used the headlight rocker switch, as it was spare after I had fitted the Baja designs Dual sport kit.
