As the fan from the US could take a month, Iíve bought another, cheaper fan - a Yamaha XSR 2017. It will either be temporary or ill be too lazy to change it and Iíll keep the other in case I have more issues.

Do you have advice on how to bodge this with cable ties and how Iíd take the connector plug from my broken Honda fan and wire it onto the Yamaha one?

I bought one from US but it was in transit for a very long time so I ordered one used from Europe and was cheaper, received it within a week and works totally fine. Then a week later (after I installed the fun from Europe) I received a fun from US which was a good quality, but I had to send it back, saying that I never paid any duty on it, just a delivery cost.
My original fun was working fine but the bracket the fun is bolted to was very corroded and I could not unscrew the fun of it so I had to buy all assembly.

So I got my fan from the US yesterday. Today I tested it and it works. Depending on which wire I put on live, the fan either pushes or pulls. You said before it should pull air and not push?

 :157: - With a radiator fan situated behind the radiator and set to pull it will pull cool air from in front of the radiator, set to push and it will push hot air from the cylinder block and exhaust into the radiator.

What do you think

Itís what I assumed. It just means I need to let the bike get up to temp, test the fan and react accordingly. Should be simple enough!

Thanks for all your help. I hope to have the new fan fitted and working tomorrow! Iím sick of watching out for the high temp light.

If the wiring you have is stock the connection should be

black/blue from the fan to black/blue from the loom (12v fan control)
black from the fan to green from the loom (chassis ground)

There's a full colour SC58 ABS wiring diagram here

Itís stock. But when I connected the black/blue to the live and the black to the ground on the battery, the fan was pushing.

Odd - The fan has to pull air through the radiator in the same direction the air flows when the motorcycle is in motion otherwise when on the move the fan will not only be pushing hot air into the radiator it will be pushing it against the natural air flow.

If need be, Iíll remove the connector and switch it around. Itís just more time consuming if I need to do that.

Can you point me towards where the fan plugs in? Last time I had the tank up, I couldnít see it.

Its a black 2 pin connector on the left hand side roughly midway between the ignition coils.
