I want to poll the audience to determine interest in a manual fan controller for the RSV4. I have one installed on my CBR 929 and when sprinting stoplight to stoplight it will keep the engine temps in the Southern California heat around 190-195 instead of 220+. The switch allows the fan to be manually turned on, but on the CBR it doesn't bypass the computer so even if switched off it will activate if the threshold temp is reached. The solution is also in-line with connectors rather than something that needs splicing so it shouldn't void any warranties and isn't permanent if you don't want it to be. Since I find the RSV4 runs hot, though I'm sure in part by design, I figured there may be interest in this solution.
You can read more about the manufacturer at the site below:
Currently, there is no setup for the RSV4, but their can be. I spoke with the site owner and he told me with a donor bike for research he would be happy to work on putting something together. If there is interest, I am willing to be the guinea pig.
The kits tend to run about $100 shipped and with an initial group buy perhaps something could be worked out on price. I am in no way affiliated with the site so I make no promises.
Before we get into a flaming war please be mindful of the following. I don't care how expensive this is for some wires and connectors. I like simplicity and cleanliness and am willing to pay for that convenience. Also, I know these bikes were designed as they are for a reason. These are essentially track bikes that I run more often on the street. With that said, I would like it to be more comfortable in the summer.
Again, before I dedicate a few tanks of gas, leave myself without my new beauty, and make arrangements for someone to drive me 60 miles home, please let me know if you are interested in this.
