'16 SDR cooling fan switch location?

Postby fattraxx » Sat Mar 04, 2017 2:52 am

I live in the PHX,Az area and ride during our ridiculous summer heat. I have seen advertised a fan temp sensor with a lower temp rating of 180 degrees versus the stock 221,the fans switching on sooner in our summer heat would be a benefit in traffic. I've looked over the bike and don't see where the stock sensor is located. Anyone made this change?

It looks to me like they are wired from ECU the coolant sensor seems to be connected to EFI control unit...

Maybe better download the service manual from somewhere and look at those diagrams yourself... :D

The service manual is here in the forum. Look at 'epic thread/must read'

I purchased a service manual. I'll look at the wiring diagrams and see what I can determine.

Looks like it's on the right side of the front cyclinder head, next to the thermostat housing. You can barely see it from the side. It may be accessible from the top with the air box removed.

Yes I remember looking at it when doing the valves and afterwards bleeding the cylinder head when changed the coolant... I looked them many times because the service manual was telling me wrong ideas about the bleed screws... Had to go to the dealer and watch closer a dissassembled engine (from a adventure 1190)... But it looked to me like a temp sensor not a switch maybe I'm wrong... :D

Looks to me indeed that it is part number 28.
