Fan Relay

Can I use any 4 pin relay for this or do I need to use a specific type of relay?

Same as starter circuit relay; looks pretty generic, electrically. Rated for 10 amps, a garden-variety relay oughta work, IMHO.

Constant + 12 VDC on one side of activation coil; other side to thermal switch. Constant + 12 VDC to one contact; fan motor (BLUE, if I'm not mistaken) to other contact.

Saw a pretty good wiring diagram; maybe in Clymer; if I can find it, I'll post it (or maybe a link).

Here 'tis:

Don't think you'll have the COOLING FAN FUSE shown; of no great consequence.

Get the model number on the relay and go to Autozone, it is a common relay used on Japanese cars , i think i paid $12 the KLR specific is $30ish.
BTW this was for Gen 1

Gen 2s don't have no stinkin' fan relays!

Good tip on the AutoZone alternative, BTW.
