    I've got a buddy with an '08 Rhino 700 and the fan has started to work sporadically. Sometimes it won't come on, and sometimes it's weak.
    Are there any common issues with the fan? If it needs a new fan, does anyone make an aftermarket version instead of the $225 OEM part?

    I was looking at SPAL fans, they have some that will work. Pricing runs from 70-98 dollars from what I remember. They do a lot of OEM stuff! Check out their site! Spal Electric Fans

    I haven't heard of any issues with the Yamaha fans. There is always the possibility f anything going bad though.

    Jerry- They don't run a circuit breaker like polaris does do they? Just wondering if it's getting weak current?

    Sounds like a bad connection on the fan. Check the ground circuit, and connections for corrosion.

    My husband has an 06 Rhino. The fan went out on it a few months ago. He ordered an aftermarket one off Ebay with a shroud. It works much better than the stock one did and keeps the engine cooler. Sometimes you want to be wary of Ebay stuff, but this fan seems to be doing really well. Was half the price of OEM.

    Seems factory pricing is downright scary at times! I've had great luck on ebay!
