2011 Z1000 Radiator Fan doesnt spin

I just have my 2011 Z1000 for 5 months. I think my bike was missing something on the left-side, close to the radiator (1st picture) and when I start the bike, i notice that the radiator fan doesnt work. Also when I look under the seat, I think it missing sth too (2nd picture). Someone please let me know if you have been there and how you solve the problem. Also what parts that im missing.

Nothing on the photo of the side of the engine stands out to me, aside from the missing fairing and the bent clutch lever. The clutch lever tells me the bike has been dropped, but I think you already knew that. under the seat, the section I circled in red is supposed to have a cable attached in it. I can't remember what this controls, but I think it's the secondary throttles.

The servo , under the seat, if for an exhaust valve. I suspect someone has removed this. That valve gets eliminated when you have a slip on exhaust, so no trouble there.



That fan only rotates when the bike is hot....., I believe it is supposed to turn on at about 205 degrees. I might be wrong on that by a degree, or two, but you wont see it turning right when you start the bike.

As previously noted, it was probably removed intentionally, and won't have a noticeable effect on the ride.

You can test the fan. Remove the plug on the fan switch. It's located on the radiator. Use a cotter pin and jump the 2 wires. The fan should come on. If it doesn't , look for a blown fuse or a bad fan motor. If it does run,plug it back in and let it get hot enough to turn the fan on. If the fan does not activate, change that fan switch.
