Manual fan switch

Just installed a manual fan switch on my nc30! Simple and easy to do! Defo recommend doing it, especially to have the option to use in this heat!

I had one at one point too, but kept forgetting to switch it off.
After cleaning and flushing the rads and cooling system, I didn't see a need for a switch anymore. Temps stay well below the red now.

yes im not really a fan of the fan-switch mod as it can be fixing symptoms instead of curing problems.

these bikes ran fine in Japan which has summer tempurates knocking on 40c in some places and lows of high 20s..

I just put a new rad/thermostat and samco pipes on aswell, i just preferred the option because the fan doesnt usually kick in till the needle is buried in the red! More a piece of mind than anything to be honest
