Hello!

I ride Piaggio X9 180 2001 and I installed a manual switch for coolant fan because i had trust issues with the temperature sensor. Right now there is a switch next to the starter button that turns on the fan. What I wanted to know is is it possible to make it so it is only possible to turn on fan when the ignition is also on? How could it be done?

Also semi-related question. If I want to install a USB port for phone charging in the small box under the steering wheel, how could i power it?

Please excuse my English.

To power a 5V USB from any 12V supply you need a voltage transformer. There are many Car power plugs and adapters that have USB 5V outlets but if you use anything like this it must be connected to an ignition only supply or it will flatten your battery overnight. Search Amazon or Ebay.

It will be a SMPS type circuit like as per plug-in car phone charger, so yes will consume current all the time it's powered up.

I have done this on my X9, to allow me to turn Fan on manually, wired via the front fuse so that it can turn on while bike was turned off.

It had occurred to me before it would be nice to be able to test if the fan works, where a thermostat is used, I have had the experience with the X10 if I leave it parked idling long enough the fan will start up. But not always. So you wonder is it OK or is it broken. Mind you exact same can be said for car fans.
