Have you replaced a radiator fan switch?

I'm just trying to see if it was a coincidence that the used fan switch I bought went bad within a month or not. I need another one now but don't feel like spending $75+ on it when a used one is 12 bucks.

So, have you replaced one of these before on a zx6r or any other bike? And yes I'm positive this is what went bad.

you better warranty that shit or its da svidanya for you, bitch.

lol

still.. used shit. you lay out 20 for a $100 part thats used. that shit breaks in 4 days. you drop another 30 since you couldnt find a deal like the last time. that bitch dies in a week.

FUCK! you find another dumb deal for 20. .. you damn near spent what you needed to originally spend on a part WITH A WARRANTY.

simple logic.

Just jumper it with a paperclip or something to make sure. It was probably just old and went out like you are thinking though.

Already done, and thankfully TheRussian is a badass and is helping me out. Speaking of, I've still got that partial rearset on both sides if you need them.

They fail from use, they fail from lack of use, they fail if dropped. Because they are so expensive and easy to get to, a CHEAP used one can be considered, but new is better. Use teflon tape on the threads.....
