Just a thought though as it appears such a good mount it will be forgotten about, perhaps a rubber washer under the steel washer to stop chaffing on the gallery pipes of the radiator. I'm wondering if the little weather proof O rings from a tek screw would make a good vibration damper/anti chafe protector for the unit?

The plastic tube between the fins is a great idea as plastic cable ties can chafe through aluminium in a short time.

That's a good idea about the flat rubber tek washers Mick, I got a million of them- give it a shot tomorrow.
The fan's been installed for over a year now, and still no wiggle or wear..
I originally used the BMW 90/95 switch, but found it ran almost all the time. Switched over to the 95/100, now it comes on only when needed.

Re: Fitment of cooling fan

Ask an you shall get...guys this is exactly the answer I was looking for pics and all. My radiator doesn't have any holes or mounts but I can see where it shoudl go and can spread the fins to make it work, I'll run the 95 / 100 switch also

Thanks again

Since the pics were taken, I've added rubber washers (Per Mick's suggestion, thanks Mick) between the metal washers and radiator- fan doesn't wiggle around one bit now, nice & snug.

Re: Fitment of cooling fan

I fitted up the KTM fan kit off my 05exc onto my fe450. Simply cable tied the through the fins and around outside of radiator frame.
Same wiring attachments and used the ktm thermostat. Easy as, works great, only took about 15min all up and had no issues in 20hrs.
Do you think I should change the thermostat? it does seem to come on early but I'd rather that than too late !

Re: Fitment of cooling fan

I'll be doing the same mate, I've got a later model Kato kit that'll be fitted up using the zip tye type recommended by the forum team, looks like it'll work well. I'll use the 95 / 100 temp switch (standard Kato temp range from what I can understand)

I've also been doing some homework on this product http://liquidintelligence115.com.au/ and most of the guys I ride with (bergs and Kato's) are setting up and running the product, between the two I think my 550 will stay in the perfect temp range regardless of condition....will report once all i sset up and I've had a chance to test the theory

Ride Safe
