keeping trans cool.

does anybody think it would be pointless putting a small jap motobike thermofan on my trans cooler.i was just looking at the one on my blade and it looks about 4-5 inches in diameter.it would easily bolt to the front of the trans cooler as a little pusher fan.am i wasting my time?

Re: keeping trans cool.

Don't think it would be a waste of time at all. Some of the aftermarket ones come with one already, and the cooler you can keep the trans, the longer it will last.

Re: keeping trans cool.

fan been installed for a week and no problems.draws bugger all current.dont have a temp gauge for trans so i dont know how much cooler it is keeping the fluid but i have bypassed the radiator for my trans cooler installation which is the way to go for highway driving so the lil fan should keep things happy during city driving is the theory im working with.

I think this is a great idea, it would be good to find a way to prove it works.
