A switch to force it on or force it off?

Whatever you're doing, I'd advise against it. I don't think you can personally determine when it needs it or not. The internal sensors can take care of it. This is probably asking for trouble.

<a href="http://mudanddirt.com/tech/rincon_fan_override/" target="_blank">http://mudanddirt.com/tech/rincon_fan_override/</a>

think its the other side but u should be able to accomplish it
rite after i bought my bike(used) i went riding in shorts with sandels to try it out
and we rode about an hour and the last mud hole we came to before the trucks the fan kicked on and splashed hot water all over my legs and that same day i put the switch on and havent had a prob since, just gotta remember to turn it off when in the mud or water

you can run power to the fan through a toggle switch, so you go power source to switch to thermostat/temp sensor to fan. This will allow the fan to be turned on/off and allow a temp sensor to turn the fan on/off when it is on. I have done this with electric fans on a sbc motor. needed to keep it cool/heat it up at different times. was very picky as it had 450 horses.

The fan works on a neg ground from the oil temp sensor . When the temp is cool the senser is open , IE no fan. When the oil increases with temp the resistance of the switch is less, till it completely closesand grounds to the engine, IE fan is on. I am currently running a 240CFM fan on my oil cooler that is connected to my engine fan . To correctly wire in a switch so both manual switch on starts the fan and if switch is off the sensor starts the fan you just need to splice the fan grounding wire ta a switch , and switch connected to earth ground. Very easy . Get a manual off ebay so you have the schematic. Works fine . No issues at all . I have also rewired my lights so all 3 lo & hi beam, and head light assist are manually controlled. IE I can run with just the display and select what lights I want on .
