We were talking about buying a piece of land out at River Ranch today at work. $2300 for a camp plus $60 a year for a membership to the Ranch Riders scratch. Just to give us another place to ride.

have leanred a lot from this site - trying to pay it forward.

For anyone wanting to remove their fan on the right side of the motor (coming out crank case), that blows air onto pipe to cool, but soemtimes will bog your engine down in water or mud....here are a few pics I took while doing mine.

hope this helps someone - Robbie



fan housing to right of fuel tank on engine side

I took my fan off last night and did the same thing. Removed the fan and then remounted the cover. Last weekend that fan was a pain in long mudholes. When the going gets slow due todigging in the mud the fan will fill with water and then it feels like you lost 10 hp. Not good. I could feel the power drop and see the speed drop on the dig dash. That fan had to go....

Looks like the rubber grommet is exactly the same as one sold at Advance Auto for $5 in the exhaust pipe area.

Anyone got any great ideas to replace the grommet?

tell me about it - I cut the whole back out up to the snorkeled pipes...

too much heat coming in.... since you have the rubber quick connects... i would suggest drilling holes in the house and TRYING to slide the house over the quick connect - then connect your stacks... I know it may be a lil painfun if oyu need to access teh engine - but really - how often do you have to???

Also, if you drill and line up and dont like it - you can always cut... just my $.02

i took my fan off last week. no troubles yet!

took it off because i got stuck in water/mud hole up to my lap and it boged the motor down so bad that it would barley stay running in nutural with the gas to the floor!!!!!!! also broke a fin or to off the fan and the fan rubbed the plastic housing.

From looking at the pic in the 2008 service manual, it looks like there is no more cooling fan. It was on the side case on the passenger side of the motor........Gone.
