I've got both bikes and a radiator out of an R, I have seen fans that were coolant temp driven before just can't remember where off hand.

i know the trx450 fans have a temp switch. that is what i plan on running along with the 450 over temp light or an electronic display of some sort so i can monitor it better.

What I'm taking about is a heat energy driven fan the warm or hot coolant actually drove the fan.

What all do you want to know for if a 450 fan will fit the R radiator? Just measurements? Voltage?

i want to know fittment. i know the arens has different dimensions on the two bars that are behind the radiator and go up to the upper steering mount part of the frame. ive read that people with stock frames are using a ltz400 fan but i had one of those in my hands and there was no way it would fit.

I can get you the measurements if that helps any

Measurements are 10 X 7.5" so for a stock style 86 radiator it'd be possible to do. As far as voltage I'll have to test it's possible they use ac.

Forgot that measurement but on a stock frame there wouldn't be any issues or even putting a 450 radiator in place of the R radiator which is roughly 12x12.

If you need a thickness measurement I can do that as well after that you're down to trying it out yourself.
