Thanks

The first switch I tried to use was a rocker that lit up and I must have wired it wrong because once I turned the switch off the first time it (the fan) never worked again.... until I discovered I had a blown fuse.

I bet that's why Sean says,

Run one wire to one side and one wire to the other from your 2 pole non-lighted switch (or ignore the third terminal for those types of switches)

Today I masked up my engine and sprayed it with HTP paint ,a nice gloss black, and went for a ride so I could suffer the effects of the paint going off.A couple more rides and the smell will go away,I hope.Cheer Kevman.

Took it for a 300km ride with another vmax buddy today and 20 other sports bikes, as always it did itself proud.. Other riders just shake there head and wonder how something so old in design can go so fast , , most other bike owners have only heard of the max but have never seen or rode one in the flesh in Australia that is,Nice to have something different and also a great talking piece....

The thermo bypass switch works great. Did mine a few weeks back. My temp never goes up past the halfway mark now, I turn it on just before that. This is riding in 100 degree with stop and go traffic. It used to almost hit the red line before the fan turned on and then it would stay that high even with the temps in the mid 80's. So I am very happy with it. I put mine on the right side(seems to be backwards from most). But with this way when I stop, and reach for the key I see the switch lit up and turn that off while pulling the key. Weak electrical system does not need the extra fan running when trying to start the bike.

I went for a small ride today, in between microbursts, then I removed the graphic wrap off of my faux tank.
