Any ideas where I can get a plastic shroud for the RIGHT hand side to keep the heat from my 2nd fan off the tank?

edit: Sorry, previous page - I see you've modified a LHS shroud.

I believe it is mentioned here that people use the left side OEM part and do a little trim work. I read also that some dont do anything. I will tell you that you probably need to do something to get the heat away from the tanks. I am ordering heat reflective material and doing the insides of my tanks. My fuel boils like crazy if im doing a lot of technical slow riding, and its only been in the 70's and 80's. I just read a thread about someone having fuel delivery issues from fuel boil

I got the 5.5 Spal from universalparts, I unscrewed the motor from the generic housing and pressed off the fan blade , I switched it over to my 950 fan shroud and pressed the new blade on , it pressed back on nice and snug , tested it on the bench and it runs smooth and balanced . Soldered on the KTM plug nice and clean, back in bussiness

it was a $40 replacement instead of the KTM part at $140

my fan had been failing intermittently and during an 800 mile trip to Death Valley I discovered it totally seized

something similar happen to my wife's bike (4:pm, July 3rd !)
That' also why I want a 2nd fan

I'm going to muck around with some heat shielding first, taking the tank off to stick it on this weekend. I really think the people who sold me the proper '2nd fan kit' should have addressed this aspect. After all, I think I paid well over $100 for the fan and bracket......

Understood. The addition of some form of a hard shield has been on the "to do" list. Applying a adhesive insulation to the tank is one way that works well.

I've started my bracket

Just did a mistake and cut a part wich was supposed to stay to be the upper bracket ...
I'll do a 2nd bracket, attached to the fan screws in order to correct this.
I used 0.05 alu to do a first try (easier to bent) but I finally guess it's stiff enough, especially when the 2nd part will be done

Very nice work. I wondered if it was the desire to fabricate your own or why you did not purchase one, I believe you can get just the bracket for $24.00 (dont quote me on the price), when I did mine I was going to buy a generic fan and go the same route as you but then found the complete fan/bracket combo and went that route. I certainly understand if you chose to make your own because clearly you have the skills to do it and it looks really solid. More wondered if you did something that you feel will help draw more air or re-direct the air flow ? After all the wheel has been reinvented many times over and it is still getting better.
Always hated that when people would ask :why reinvent the wheel ? , " because it aint perfect like you " .

Well, yes, I like to do things myself (thanks for the compliment) and yes I feel concerned about how the air is drawn...
But if the bracket (wich was out of stock when I started) was available, alone, for 50$ or less, I would not have spent any time working on this one... for sure.
I have understood on thing... Whatever I do, there's one thing I'll never have enough, it's time!

Just ordered my ADVmachines dual cooling fan... Have a 2500 mile trip planned next month, so its gonna get a trial by fire, especially being that all 2500 miles will be in the deep south!

Put this fan on my 990ADV last year right before a 5 day trip into the Mojave Desert and it worked great. Sand, slow speed and 120 degreesF and no overheating problems!

fan connector question

Looking at the manual, ktm parts for the fan connector seem to be:
000700000BI SPARE CONNECTOR BI 2-PINS (fan)
000700000AU SPARE CONNECTOR AU 2-PINS (wiring harness)

Does anyone know the generic type (manufacturer/part#). Is it D2CP/D2CS from here? http://www.corsa-technic.com/categor...category_id=57
