Do a net search for Motorcycle salvage yards too. That bike is old enough now that there should be a few around.

You say HOT! Just how HOT?

The fan should only come on in traffic or after a very hard ride then stopping. Check your coolant level too.

Start the bike in the driveway. Ensure nothing else is hindering the fans operation...

Let the bike run...

Does the fan come on? At what Temp?
Is the fan able to cool the bike? Does it turn off?
If so..Later does the heat come back up and the same repeat itself?

Muzzy makes a fan blade assembly.



Link

It's got more blades than stock so it should push more air.

theres nothing wrong with its cooling ability, it comes on when it should thats all fine, the problem is its bent so the blades are hitting my headers. the fan comes on at 208 like it should, and where i live theres alot of traffic im not going to just be able to cruise nonstop n not worry about it, i need the fan to work. n i meant to say it starts to hit again, not hot (typo). Im going to the dealer today to see if they'll warranty it
