Computer fans for rads on Dirtbike?


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

      So I recently replaced my clutch basket with a Wiseco clutch basket. I am sure I put the basket together correctly as I followed the instructions on how o take off the old gear and put it on the new basket and then I followed my manual on putting in my new basket. I did nor replace anything but the basket! I still have the original plates inside and te hub and pressure plate. I put it all back together without the cover on top and I pulled the clutch and the pressure plate went out like it should but when I put the cover on and I put it in neutral and kicked it over, I pulled in the clutch and tried to put it in gear and it just stalled, almost like the clutch lever wasn’t disengaging the clutch! I adjusted my knob on the handle bar both ways as much as I could and it did nothing! I don’t know where else I can adjust it or what to do! Please help! Thankyou!

      So I thought I should create a new thread to dump my vlogs into for the few that do watch them.  If you didn't catch my vlogs from last year for 2017, check them out here -> 2017 NMA Series
      Season 2 is well underway for 2018.  This year I'll be racing the Open A class competing in both the NORCS and NMA off-road series as well as the Desert 100 and maybe some other races throughout the year.  If you got any questions or recommendations, lets hear them.  Enjoy!

      BRAND NEW in the box, still shrink wrapped, white Clarke tank that I bought for my YZ last year. I was going to go with the all white look with retro red graphics, but later decided against it. My loss is your gain! These tanks retail for $240.00 brand new.
      No pictures... It is literally sitting in the box it was shipped in, still wrapped! It's a stock white tank. Here is a link to the info on it if you need it:

      Just saw this article this morning.
      Will other brands dust off the tooling to jump on the bandwagon, or is this just a novelty? 
      I guess to begin with, we will see a sea of Blue, Orange and White! Of course, you might have some of the older year model in the mix.
      I'm glad the 2 stroke is getting some much deserved (new) recognition.
