I've got 3 fans I just took off my US Federal S1.  If your desperate contact me off list at [email protected]

The shipping is going to be wicked.

Lee, if you don't want to buy Dom's fans, then I'd like to buy them from him.

Dom, if Lee doesn't buy your fans, and you're selling them cheap, I'd like to buy them from you.

Without meaning to be self-serving, make sure they are the same; manual shows different fans between Federal and UK/RoW. Later S2s (Federal at least) had a different fan arrangement, too - two larger instead of three smaller.

If the shafts are still no good still give DES SHELLEYS a ring he can repair almost anything and evern make new 1's if he has a patter to work from.

Hi Ian

what year of the CBR were the fans off?

will they work on the S2 also ?

is the radiator frame same on the S1 and S2?

thanks

Tony,

I don't think the radiator bucket (the thing it sits in) is the same on an S1 and S2. I thought the S2 rad was bigger and sat on a angle while my S1 is verticle in position. Hence the assembly it sits in would be different.

Anybody confirm this for Tony?

I can confirm the S2 radiator sits at an angle to the vertical. On mine, the radiator is about two thirds of the width with the air conditioning condenser in front and offset to the right.

well since there is a difference do you guys

think the fans that Ian used will work on the

S2 or is there any other better fans out there?

its sad the car has not been driven in the last

few summers I am trying to change that, also

are there any cross reference or better radiators

out there?

Thanks again

Tony
