My fan is dying. Still works, just is rattling and I intend to replace it this spring before it fails.

Would it be of use to anyone here? To fix or refurb...

You can do it!

Is there an equally good post about getting the old one out of the bike and a new one in? I recall that by-the-book it involves removing the rear shock but someone here said it can be done less invasively. A quick search is not turning anything up for me. Thanks.

You have to remove the rear shock, that is the only way the fan can exit and re-enter the frame. You may somehow finagle it through the other side but that would mean you would have to pivot the engine down which would be way more work. The easier way you may be referring to is changing O2 sensor? The manual says to pivot the engine down, but some have found it easier to get to it through the fan and I believe someone even made a how to video on youtube.

Support the rear of the bike with tie downs from the rafters or a A-frame ladder. The shock comes out really easily.
