Ok, I converted to electric two years ago, and I believe I used Shep's write up on the topic. I cannot find that write up, and I cannot remember which electric fan I wound up using. I kknow it was the most popular choice at the time I did the conversion, and it required me to cut off the end of the camshaft. I believe it was a Kawasaki Ninja 600 fan, but I am not sure :/

Ahh. I'm pretty sure I used the Ducati 916 fan. I hope the fan has some kind of ID marks on it. If/when it dies, I want to replace it with the exact same thing, as the mounts I made are welded to the steel.

Just wired mine back in today

I use an 80C switch on a relay to control the fan.

It isnt the simplest method but I figured that it will last longer

switching 130 milliamps to a relay coil than the full current of the fan motor.

As I only need small gauge wire for the relay coil, I soldered the leads to the switch

Now that looks like a fan!




What kind is it?

Kind of reviving a dinosaur here, but it seems all of Sheps sites are long gone.

That fan finally died. No idea what one I used, and I can't find Shep's write up anywhere.

That's the one!
All the sites listed earlier in this thread are gone, didn't realize it had been moved.
