06-09 YZ450f electric fan installation?

8 posts in this topic

...about mounting them, or powering them? 

 

There is NO surplus electricity to do anything with on the '03-'09 YZ450; zero.  The stators are smaller than the gas cap, and intended only to operate the ignition.  But, you can run small DC computer chassis fans off a single 9V for up to 2 hours straight.  Put a switch in so you can leave them off until they matter, and you'll be set.

Yes   however when waiting after freinds, I tend to not stop the engin since it's a @@@#$% to restart when very hot

 

I did it with my YZ426

Even with smashed radiators. Maybe you have a different problem, if you really want to put in high flow water pump in..

I have ridden my bike slow.. alot. Hit single track at low speed. Spent a lot of time on the clutch before I got it geared lower and heavy flywheel installed. Stock motor with engine ice and have never experienced the need for a fan.

Same here went out with a friend who was on a bayou 250 he was creeping if I went any slower I would have tipped over while I did feel my legs getting a little warm it didn't boil over. After that I don't see a need to even bother with a fan. Mine is 2012 by the way not sure if that makes a difference.
