    Stock Rad Fan Output Rating

    Considering a non-OEM replacement radiator fan for my resurrection build. The stock unit was smashed. These auto fans are typical replacements for the CX500's that I've built in the past. One in particular is a 12V / 80W unit. Does anyone know the output rating of the stock Hawk fan? Can't seem to locate any info on the motors. Would I be safe in that 80W range? Don't want to tax the changing system, but also realize the fan may come on once in a blue moon, especially w/the Thermae radiator.

    Bike builds can be and most time are art and expression. To take something mass produced and impersonal and make something personal that you can't stop staring at as you walk away. There is nothing I find more satisfying than looking at something cool and beautiful and thinking "I made that". - 6
