I put on my direct replacement Spal fan from universal parts. They said I've got the correct fan and they have sold lots of them without a complaint. However, on my quad, no matter what the rotation, the adapter plate just simply isn't big enough to line up with all three mount points. The best I can do is only get two of the three bolts in. This is not a big deal, as I'm sure using two bolts will work fine, just curious if anyone else ran into this????

My plate is different from that one, all three line up on mine. looks like yours was boxed wrong I think it's for a 660. Look at the pic on Ebay for the 700, the wings on the plate are wider than the fan! The 660 one looks just like the one you got.

You can always run a bracket from the fan to the other mount.

Do you know what the CFM difference between the two is?

I sent Spal this information, requesting they send me the correct 700 plate.

This fan is rated at 440cfm. Not sure about the stock fan. I can tell you this, this fan moves a noticeable amount more air than the stock fan. When it is running, I can really feel the hot air hitting me when seated on the quad. I could never tell when the stock fan was running.

Not sure if it really helps with extra cooling though. Since cut in is 220 and cut out is I think 190, the extra cfm just means when the fan comes on, it takes a shorter period of time to hit 190 and shut off, therefore the fan cycles more. It would only provide extra cooling if your stock fan is running constantly.

I did this because with all the mud and water I have gone through, my stock fan seized. This fan was cheaper than the yamaha fan (but not by much as they charged me $77 shipping to Canada!!!!), and will hopefully prevent further failure, as it is supposed to be waterproof.

I think I ran a year without a fan and didn't even notice! The extra heat of the turbo definitely made me notice!

Thanks for the help guys!
