Thumbs up

<~~~~ lower fan tester

So far....the lower fan has impressed me an awful lot. As my bike hits 205-207 the fans come on.....then the temp rises to about 210 and holds..... I sat at a stop light for atleast 5 mins and the temp wouldn't rise above 210* the air temp was about 80*...this summer will be the real test when temps hit 90*+...... we'll see how it holds up... I am very happy and think that the higher temps shouldn't bother these new fans.
Jimmy.... you've outdone yourself with these....
were they already coated witha a clearcoat of some sort? They seem to have something on them already so I didn't feel it was needed to hot dip them.

If you want to take off your fan shroud and sent it to me I can check. Unless someone can crosss reference part numbers between F4 and Brutale.

AFAIK no one has had a blade melting issue, but if the new fans can move more air, and actually hold the temp at a constant, then it's well worth it.
