great info, I've noticed that my fan hasn't came on once since I've owned my quad... I'll have to pop open the seat and take a look. Thanks!

I seriously considered soldering the connection together but haven't. Mine is working fine since I locked them together. This issue seems to be VERY widespread.

It's possible but doubtful. The problem or should I say potential problem, is apparently not serious enough to utilize a recall. The best advice I can give is to talk to your dealer.

First and foremost, thanks a bunch!!

1. got the "good" fuel pump.

2. found the two connectors this morning, looked like they might not be all the way together. Shoved them together, went riding all day, and WOW, I have a fan.
Now this pissed me off because the "experts" at the dealership told me they checked front to back and found NOTHING wrong with the fan. In fact, I think we are going to have a little chat about their $899 extended RIP-OFF!!

Anyway, thanks for sharing great info, and one last thing...where is the TPS sensor plug so I can check it out??

Thanks
Very well written, the dealer seems like they are full of sh%$ sometimes and it comes at our cost. The problem with people lie not in their ingnorance, but what they know that is not so. Clearly, dealerships and service departments are completely incompetant at times when it comes to solving problems. Fortunately, this forum can establish some degree of accountability.

brought home my raptor last september and read your posts and checked mine and sure enough, clear over here in central oregon my electrical terminals were both partially plugged in that go to the fan relay. thanks for the info.

I made a ride yesterday, fan was ok it comes on a few times, but after about 2 hours of riding I shutoff the atv and when come the time to start it it don't want to start, I think it was the vapor lock problem, to statr it I put the atv in a Slope and It start very well!!!! Anyone know if its the fuel pump the problem???

I fixed my fan plugs and my fan still hasnt come on, I migh cut them off and put new connectors on.
In that case I would cut the connectors out and solder them together, or use blade connectors. Just remeber to tape them up or better yet use heat shrink tubing.

Just checked mine and they were not together all they way also. Where do you check to see if the fuel pump is the right one. Thanks for the info.

The fan was the first thing for me to check and it appears that it had already been done by the previous owner. Still the fan doesnt come on so I think that I will replace them with some blade connectors. Thanks for the write up.

I had the "bad" fuel pump but never experianced the problem. I took my bike to the dealer along with print outs of the service bullitin posted on this sight and they changed it out under warranty "just in case" so I don't have a problem later
