Melted fan perhaps?

Looks like I might be part of the melted fan group. Now when she is shut down I hear some clicking like there is a part on the fan that is melted that keeps hitting the edges(before it was smooth and didnt have the clicky sound) I havent had a chance to take the fairings off and check it out but I will eventually.

Looks like I need to install a Muzzy ASAP.

I believe she is the Devil in a candy wrapper.

This has probably been discussed, but why don't we just bypass the thermostatic fan control and run them all the time? As long as there is a thermostat the bike should not get too cold. I don't know what lewis did, but the fans on the AGO start as soon as the key is in the acc. position.

I know its been covered, but I figured I would post whore a bit

I will just get some muzzy fan blades, and a mid pipe before the 600 mile service and ahve them all installed then. should knock down the temps a little.

The fan makes no difference Dova, they just dont melt.

Its worth the money though, I hated that scratching sound.

I only replaced the lower fan,as that was the melted one, maybe replacing the top fan will make a small difference ... although, that is not the easiest task. You would be wise to fit both fans at 600m service mate.

Dova... FWIW, Haven't experienced a clicking/rattling fan on shut down with the MV, but would with a Honda Superhawk I used to ride. Every time it happened it was a little rock/pebble caught in the blades/housing. Just mentioning it with the small chance this or something else small is causing it. Guess you will see when you pull the fairing. Spin the fan with the fingers to find the source. Has the temperature been hot enough the past two weeks in OK for you to have something warped or imbalanced already?

The temps got up to 60's one day, the bike was getting up towards 210+ but when I kill the bike, I will let it sit till the fans stop. Dunno I will have to go take a peek next week, and see whats going on in there.

I dont recall that being the case...but I cannot swear to it. I never modded anything to do with the fans or cooling...it never ran hot. Maybe a wire is switched around or something...whatever you do, DO NOT CUT THE RED WIRE !!!

A gun is not a weapon. It's a tool, like a butcher's knife, or a harpoon, or an alligator.

check the wire route also...mine had a clickin/ rubbing sounds once.... turned out that the fan wire clamp had somehow been moved and it caused the wire to hit the blade a bit.....also hit the header which in turn, burned the fan wire....
