Click on this link. https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=spal+6.5%22+puller&_sacat=131090
Thank you, I really appreciate your help. But which one do you advise me to purchase, as they seem to be different amps? I know the size, 6.5", but not sure of the power(?).
Thank you.

Also,how would one attach it? Would it be cable (zip) ties through the radiator,or do they fit in the original surround?
I did see the links above,but I just wanted some assurance.
Thank you.

I can assure you that cable ties through the radiator weren't used in those photos but pop rivets through the original housing were used. Look more closely at the photos. The original housing was split on one side then stretched open to accommodate the new fan. The fan was then riveted to the old housing. See it?
Ah yes,I see them now! What a brilliant idea! Well done, to think of that. I shall order one immediately. But back to my previous question,which fan should I order? I know it's the 6.5", but which ampage,or does it not matter?

I had the brush holders melt on my K100RS.  I tried to fix them, but the fix only lasted a couple thousand miles.  Here is exactly the fan I used:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Spal-30100402-6-5-Straight-Blade-Low-Profile-Fan-Puller-325-cfm/312248815224?epid=1172534759&hash=item48b37ace78:g:7TIAAOSw4NZbdZSc:rk:1:pf:0#shpCntId

I would do a buy it now and see if the transaction is blocked because of your address.  Worse comes to worse, someone here could purchase it and ship it to you.  It woudn't be the first time.

I have linked above the procedure I used to install it.  Avoid cable ties, they aren't reliable enough.  Follow the procedure I linked.  It is really easy and holds up, my installation has gone through 15,000 miles and a bad accident and still works.

While the radiator and fan are off the bike take the opportunity to clean the radiator thoroughly inside and out.  Even if the internal passages are squeaky clean, there usually is enough dirt and bugs in the fins to block almost all the air flow.

This is a 50 A right. Is that right? Also,I couldn't get to your link on how to fit it. Is it similar to the other chaps link? Do I have to sand all the mounting points off to get it into the original shroud?
Thank you.

The one you show is not the same as the one I used, the blades look different, and who knows what else may not be the same.  The one I linked is the one I used and I know it works.

I used a band saw to cut all the tabs and slots off the frame.  A hacksaw will work too.  Then I cleaned them up with an 80 grit sanding disc on a drill.

check out reply #18 by RoadBandit to see how to do the retrofit. If you are mechanically competent to get the fan and radiator out of the bike the retrofit's a piece of cake.

The discription says curbed blades,but they are quite clearly straight. I'm trying to find a source nearer home to get it,as I have looked at shipping from the u.s and it is more than the fan!

The part number 30100402 looks the same, but I don't understand the options.  The one I used only came in one configuration that I know of.

Did you contact the guy in the link I posted?  His price is about 40 pounds.  Shipping shouldn't be that much, as the package isn't that large or heavy.

Go to IHOP next time. I know for a fact that you can get served if you wear a sport coat and tie without pants.
We went there on our last day on the way to the airport. I had a nice steak and hash brown omelette.
I'm bloody hungry just thinking about it now. But it's half past ten pm here.
In fact,time to hit the sack. Thank you all very much for your help with the fan.
Good evening to you.
