2005 Polaris Sportsman 500 Fan Replacement

Recommended Posts

Well another broken part on this bike. (2005 SP 500.H.O.) I went for a little ride the other day and the "HOT" light on the dash started to flash. I quickly turned off the machine and realized that the fan wasn't working. I tried to spin it by hand and it was seized solid. What a PITFA! I now have the bike at home and I took the fan off to try to rebuild the SPAL motor. It's not a tough job but when I took the motor apart it was full of mud and water. The front bearing had failed. I cleaned it up the best I could and got it running again but it is now noisy as hell and I don't trust it.

Has anyone here had to change the fan on there machine?

Is there a good aftermarket fan I can order instead a OEM?

The stealer over here wants $350! Not a chance in hell will I pay that for a fan.

Does any one have any part #'s?

On the back of my fan it says....

VA55/CWP-54A

Thanks for any help. I need to get this bike up and running soon!

Part # is 2410383 Babbits online parts has a new fan for $197.94. I know that is still expensive, but here is a link to their site. I would be willing to bet that you could use just about any 12 volt fan, that you can get to fit and doesn't draw too much current. As far as aftermarket for your machine goes, I have no idea, check ebay. I would willing to bet that you could replace the bearings in the fan though. There should be some #'s stamped into the bearing indicating its size, one number indicates outer diameter, the next inner diameter and the other width. Just make sure you get sealed bearings.

I have checked Babbits and Ronnies an I still think I can get a better price.

Has anyone ever bought off the The-Fan-Man ? I talked to him yesterday and he's calling me back today with a price. I guess the part # I gave him is not a # that he stocks, so he has to call Spal to get a price. I checked out the Spal website and cross reference the fan #'s and from what I can find it's going to run me about $80 +tax+shipping.

As for replacing the bearing, I don't think it's an option due to the bearing being stamped into the housing and locked in place. The housing is actually overtop of the bearing on both sides so pressing it out would destroy the housing.

I replace my AC stock fan with a $50 part from autozone. They are not as well built compared to the factory ones for deep water riding but for the trails they work just fine. (I rode my autozone fan in deep water for about a year before it gave out, then just got a new one, still around $100) Just measure the diameter of your fan and then check out what they have in stock.

So I talked to "the fan man" a few minutes ago and I ordered a direct replacement (Spal) fan for $56+tax and shipping. Funny, when I called Spal directly they quoted me $79. I guess it pays to call around.

So for around $100 I get a new fan. Thats much better than $350 from the dealer.

Now I just have to sit here and wait for the package while all my buddies are out ripping up and down the river behind my place. This sucks!!!!

I really cant find much info on the radiator relocation kits for the 550. From what I read is that the cooling systems on the XP's work exrtemely well due to the stock rad location. I have also read that people who do add a radiator relocation kit use a genaric kit (one size fits all). Also some sites are saying that there is going to be a model specific kit for the 550 and 850 xp's comming soon.

The fan came in today along with a damn brokerage fee from UPS.

I tore the fan apart and had to change the connector. The one on the bike is different than the one that came with the fan. I installed the motor on the old fan and it works great!

Thanks guys.

Rich: What was the part # for the fan motor from The Fan Man, I talked to them yesterday and they wanted the part #, was it SPAL 30100411???

Thanks Trev

Hey Trev

I did talk to Jack III at the Fan Man for ya and this is what you need...

The part # on the new fan is...

VA09-AP12/C-54A

Spal part # 30100411

All I did was swap the new motor that comes with the new fan into the original Polaris fan housing. You'll have to solder on the end plug of the original bad motor onto the new motor from Spal.
