Cooling fan issue

Gents I have searched with limited results and its an easy question.

Where is the fan fuse? I can't find it.

Also of I was to install a manual switch would I wire it to the negative at the temp gauge or do you typically run a hot to the fan?

Im gonna be real nice because im in a great mood tonight...

the fuse is the first 10amp fuse in the fuse box under the seat... the small box behind the battery, it will be labelled

Scottie thank you. I happened to look over the fuse block multiple times.

Fuse was blown jumped to the rad and it works.

no problem... well I highly recommend downloading the service manual...

When I know Im gonna be working on my bike for a long period of time in my garage I keep one of my laptops out here so I have pandora playing through my stereo and access to a shop manual, this forum and google, among many other things I also have a hardcover service manual but my laptop keys are easier to clean grease off of :P

The fan switch (temp controlled) is on the right radiator. It grounds the fan at like 200*F stock (I think). You can get a lower temp fan switch like I did but search that as you can also get them cheap on fleabay.

If you put a switch on it only use the switch to provide ground. You can just tap into the fan switch wire and then go to a ground.

DONT defeat any redundant safety circuits on any vehicle. By this I mean realize that that shiny new switch you put on will corrode and fail, when it does, you want the auto switch to still step in and prevent you pushing the bike (and your angry soon-to-be-ex-girlfriend home).

Also, in my experience, even robust switches last way longer on the ground side (dont know if this is scientificly true.
