Looks great!I put a fan on my Honda 450X.If you still need the temp.switch and fan harness I bought mine off ebay.Its the spal kit and comes with the thermostat,harness with relay,fuse holder and complete schematic/install instructions w/override switch option.There are two different kits one has a 185fh.temp. sensor the other is a 195fh.I went with the 195fh.Its only $34.19 with free shipping and the fan cost the same.It looks to be the same as yours Spal#VA32-A101-62A.I was amazed at the amount of air that fan pulls.
That's a nice install as well! If I didn't already have braces I would have gone with the ones similar to yours. I have those on my '08 and they're a much stronger design. I bought my stuff off Ebay as well probably from the same guy. Great deal and it does move alot of air. I have the 195 tstat on order but I didn't get the relay/harness kit because I wanted to go with a more compact relay. You really don't need a 40 amp relay to control a 2.5 amp fan! Anyway I got these 20A micro relays from Eastern Beaver.

Is there any specific reason for the fan switch? Could you just run the fan from a switch on the handlebars for when you are in slow conditions? I have an 08 wr450 and haven't overheated yet, but i know the day may come when i will. Great job on the work done! Where is the cheapest place to get the fan? thanks justin
You don't need a thermostat switch. A handlebar switch will work fine I'm sure. The cheapest I've found is here:

pdbblue, thanks for the info. i found the fan and the specs on it. if i am correct, it's about 2.36 in thick. i only have about 1" on clearance between my stock tank and radiator. i also have works connection braces on them. i could not find an acerbis oversize tank for my bike(08 wr450). any ideas? thanks for the help, justin.
I haven't really looked at putting a fan on my 08 WR. I still have the stock tank on that bike. I know most prefer the IMS or Clarke tanks for that model year. Anyone with an IMS or a Clarke know if a fan will fit?????
