Re: manual fan switch for 09-11?
Thought i would update. I finally got around to doing this. Launching at over 100deg Celsius at the drags made me cringe a bit so got me motivated to put it in.
After looking at the wiring diagram the best solution i could come up with was to draw the power from the +terminal fan fuse wire and run this to a switch and then down to the fan. I wanted to retain the existing fan circuit to avoid drawing on and messing with any other circuits, especially if there was a short, and in this retaining the fuse designed for that circuit.
To make this as tidy as possible i soldered the lines onto the pin connectors (pop them out the back of their plug and solder in and shrinkwrap) to make sure it was going to be a solid (no shorts) as well as neat job. I also ran these wires in the standard fan wire sheath to keep it extra neat and also mitigate the likelihood of a melted wire as its in a pretty warm part of the bike next to head and the reg/rect.
See pictures below of this as well as where i put the switch.
Works a treat!
