Computer fans for rads on Dirtbike?


kwbmxr123

i did This Recently to my YZ426F. i used a 14.4V Drill battery and 2 computer fans. The key is to getting a clean install so you do not make your bike look like trash and you do not get stuck on wires. :cripple: the biggest question that i had when looking how to make these fans was how long they would last. Mine last 4-5 Hours. In all of the trails I've done i haven't ever run out of Juice for them. When i am going fast i can flip a switch and shut them down, but i have never had too.

I have 2 computer fans on my 2012 WR450 that have been on the bike since new & never had a failure even when I had them mounted on the front of the radiators. I have them running constantly as most of my riding is done in tight technical woods riding. I take no special precautions when it is time to wash the bike which happens after every ride & I ride 3 out of 4 weekends. The computer fans can take a beating.

Great idea! My yz450 tends to run hot when I'm keeping pace with my little kids. I usually just ride ahead and then back and ahead and then back again. I'm gonna give this a try for sure

      I will be going on a trip around US and will be towing my WR my the front wheel like in the pic below. I don't want to be eating up the knobby tires on the long freeway stretches. Is there any rear rim that can fit properly on the WR, that isn't a WR rear wheel as they are kind of pricey, so that I can switch it out for when I'm towing it? I don't need it to be able to fit the break or sprocket, just need it to be able to roll properly. 
      Edit: Since this is turning into "how to tow a motorcycle" thread, I've looked at all my other options. Buying a car that can handle that, trailers, bike carrier on a hitch, etc. I've towed my bike like this plenty of times without a single issue, and have spoken with other owners that have done the same. With the chain and rear break disconnected there is no way the bike engine will be hurt by towing the bike this way. I don't have anywhere that I can store a trailer when not in use, I'm not going to buy another car just so 1% of the time that I use it for towing i can tow properly with it, and the hitch carrier wont work for my vehicle as they don't make hitches strong enough for it to handle the full weight of the motorcycle. Simply want to know how to figure out how to figure out what wheel and spacer would work on the rear to have the wheel spin freely when not connected to to chain or break.

      My top end went on m 98 cr 125, the needle bearing clip came out and broke apart and shrapnel got everywhere and blew it up. I cleaned out the top end and washed out the crank with the bike upside down. the bike starts up great and seems to run fine but im getting a weird di-di-di-di-di-di-di noise coming from the motor. i tried adjust the power valve and tightening everything but the noise is still there. Here is a link to a video where you can hear the sound. It gets louder as rpm's get higher and at really low rpm barely idling it goes away. I am pretty new to bikes and 2 strokes so any help would be appreciated.
