Basically, fit thermo switch to 'return' side of water flow, it's going to be hotter than 'feed' side. There are smaller ones available but you would have to wire it through a relay to operate fan. Unfortunately it's just too long ago I worked on CX on 'daily' basis

Great tips. Thank you. I have a cx650e in mothballs. I'll  have a look at that.
Run out of zip ties? Dental floss is an excellent alternative.

650s have the switch right in the bottom of the rad and are bullet proof the switch runs the fan directly and the switch lasts forever as does the fan
