Any help on this one please

Cooling fan not working, up to press I’ve done the following tests

Thermostat check and it’s opening
3 fan switches,one original, one cheap copy and the latest one is a tour max one fitted today
Bridged a jump wire from the blue and black wire to earth and the fan comes on.

I’ve run the bike until it’s bubbling over and the fan does not come on, got me baffled any other checks that can be done.

Thanks

Luke

Earth the wire to the switch body (ignition on), if it doesn't come on (it should) try earthing it to a good earth on the engine or direct to battery earth, presumably it comes on now?

If thats the case the radiator needs earthing - either to the loom or straight to the battery.
The earth to loom connector often gets forgotten if the rads been off or the terminal gets corroded.

So the issue of the fan was the earth (thanks for the tip) the earth was connected to the frame and not the radiator, so moved it and hey presto off it went 👍

So back on with re build, a few more parts fitted this week,see latest photos.
