anti-perc fan
« on: 01:15, Fri 07 January 2011 »
Im seen alot of R5s that have had this removed, Am i correct in stating this is the MAIN problem that causes the R5 to burst into flames?

Is removing the anti-perc fan a hard job?

You are correct. There have been reports of the anti perc fan turning into a flame thrower from Hades.

Piece of cake to remove. Few nuts n bolts and terminate the electrical ends.

You could just unplug it and make sure the ends are insulated, there's a constant 12v feed to it.

The motor is held in by a bracket on the inner arch, i think it's one bolt at one end and a hook on the other. The fuel line for the carb runs through the plastic tubing coming from the fan so keep that in mind before you start yanking at it.
