Fanzilla's 3rd cousin?

Just mocking everything up in cardboard before I get the tabs welded on the rad itself. Going to use 1/8 thick aluminium for the tabs and 1/4 thick aluminium for the braces attached to the fan. I have the fan blades spaced 3mm off the rad. Anyone have anything else to add before I finalize it!?
And yes everything was marked out while the rad was still on the bike.

Haha Thanks Mitch. I have internally and externally ceramic coated stock headers. My Bodis setup will consist of catless mid pipe and Bodis Slip on.

Plus, it adds additional weight to the critical left side of the radiator support. That's where the splits happen.

It weighs less than a pound all together. I thought 2005s didn't have the radiator issues that plagued later models.

All old F4's have this potential problem, but, if you get you fan brackets right, this can serve the same purpose as Joe's bracket, re-enforcing the radiator.

Well I think I built it strong enough to act as its own support. Here's the finished product. Just need to get the ends welded to the tank. This will happen Wednesday. Do you think I should drill holes in the brace to promote better airflow?

They are certainly heavy duty brackets.The 3rd fan does work very well.Are you going to wire it so all 3 fans come on at the same time?Thats what I did.
