Looking for lower temp fan switch part number

I read before and I can't seem to find it but guys were using a lower temp fan switch for a Nissan car I believe and was wondering if anyone knows the part numbers? Thanks

Suzuki PN is 17680-50F00
Its used in some Suzuki ATV's and Suzuki Swift cars. You could find a cheaper aftermarket replacement, but I bought a genuine one which is currently on its way to me.
The A models have a different size switch, thread size etc doesnt match. I couldnt tell you what replacement that would require.

@SteveW looking forward to your thoughts and fitment on this when you get it.

For Tech Questions Bike Model letters and Country are more useful than saying the year, for UK owners anyway, as registration year is not always the year of manufacturer model.

Fitted one today, the kawasaki one would switch on when the gauge read above half way this new one switches on before it goes above half way, and switches off before it drops below half way.

But this was on my B4 and I'd also just changed the coolant to "Silkolene MAG COOL long term anti-freeze and coolant"

I'd changed the coolant and burped it, only to then realise id forgot to change the fan switch, ended up just using a beer pitcher and popping the fan switch out with a 24mm spanner.
I was surprised at how full the beer pitcher got before it slowed to a drip.

The fairings were off the bike as I was doing an oil, coolant, front caliper strip and brake line change. Also changed the front peg hangers to black ones.
I'll see how it goes tomorrow, when all the fairings are back on and I take it for a spin.

Here is a picture of the two fan switches side by side.

Im not sure if having an "empty" beer pitcher next to your bike was good or bad luck, good it was empty to collect fluid, bad someone drank the beer and you have to make another trip to the fridge Craig
ninjayorkie and SteveW like this.

if anything goes wrong check the battery

Today with all the fairings on the gauge went up to the one above half way, the fan was on, and switched off again while still above half way, I had been ridding it a little hard and this was when I had slowed down and doing 20mph, so chances are the engine still had loads of built up heat.

I can't think where the gauge temp is at the moment, I might have to check that too.

Now found it below and between throttle bodies 1 and 2 in the cylinder block.

Got it in, runs well and temps looked good but haven't had a really decent long ride due to weather

Would you say there is improvement?
Better?
Same?
Worse?

To be honest, I've not really noticed too much difference, as I tend to still use the remote fan switch anyway, but as these engines can generate a lot of heat, anything that can keep them slightly cooler has got to be a good thing.

I'd say definitely better.
Temp gauge would usually read over half in traffic or at the lights, so far it hasnt gone over half.
I have a Woolich data logger, need to pull the card for a real comparison. Dont recall the exact number, but also when doing a throttle body sync with the laptop plugged in, the data page was showing good temp.


I've also got a part number for the next fan switch (88 ON) if that would help out a turbo bike
