X-Trainer Fan Blade

Recommended Posts

Mine worked itself loose. I removed the entire fan & had a look & it sees that the plastic blade is just pressure fit to the motor shaft. I pushed it back on but am concerned that it will happen again. I have an override switch installed so I was able to shut it off when I heard the sound of it coming loose so I don't think it was damaged. I was thinking about glueing it but have never had much success gluing plastic to metal especially where forces are involved with a small surface area.

Cyoacrylate gel (Gorilla Glues version of Crazy Glue) is holding. I removed it, cleaned it, put a piece of thin plastic bag on the shaft between the motor & fan (leave plenty of extra so it can be pulled out after), glued it & pulled the bag out when it was dry.

Ya I had the same problem but JUST FYI. I replaced my fan motor with a SPAL 4" puller fan motor because it is the same dims as the stock beta fan however I made the misstate of tossing that stock fan blade that was walking off. To install the SPAL fan into the OEM fan mounting plastic bracket you will have to heat and remove the existing fan blade so if you can, install the stock fan blades onto the new SPAL fan. I feel like it works a lot better at moving air through the radiators than the stock SPAL blades . My thermostat is working fine now but because I am running the stock SPAL blades it takes longer for the liquid to cool down to turn the fan off ultimately just using more battery juice unnecessarily. plus if you ever have to get anew fan its a lot cheaper at $59. Hope this helps someone out there 118047324_SPASSFAN.PNG.cd6a0c193914f6772e05f1826614df0d.PNG541148554_OEMFAN.PNG.b1eab671a09c9828f61a6596efe12551.PNG

      Down here in mexico, land of the miracle and home of the weird, ive seen people use the same mousse for over 2 years. They claim that though it has become softer, it remains in place and performs well. How long have you used the same mousse for? 
      Rubber side down my guys,

      Anyone have any unbiased opinion if they were buying a new dual sport.   Would you go with the new Honda CRF450L or the Beta 430rrs?   Why

      As the title suggests, I've been debating the idea of throwing in a high compression piston. It will bump the compression in my 2014 KTM 350 XC-F from 13.5:1 to 14:1. First and foremost my main question is, because I live under 1000 ft and usually run 97 octane REC gas, will I have to change the fuel I run or not? Also, will I have to change out the cams to aftermarket and re-time the whole motor and ignition? I guess I really don't know what to expect so any advice will definitely help! Attached below is a photo of the bike I plan on putting it in.
