Have you checked the fuse for the fan? A voltmeter across the plug for the fan when the bike is at a temp where the fan should be on could indicate a few things. 0 volts means theres no power to the fan. If there is voltage there then you know the fan is being told to come on and if the connector is plugged in securely with no fan operation then you could have a bad fan.

Keep in mind that a fuse can fail and not be visible in the little window. Use a volt meter for conductivity check (or just swap in a fuse for the suspect fan fuse). It's rare but I have seen it.

I change tires, you buy them on the web, $50. Seattle area. I use a Coats power tire changer, been doing tires for 15 years.
