There is in the fuse box and runs other stuff too anythign else not working???..but can be the fan sensor switch mounted at the top front of the engine..follow the wires..or a loose broke wire or bad fan. Pull wires from fan switch hook directly to battery does it work??

I don't have a schematic for your bike, but most fan switches work by connecting to earth, so my first suggestion would be to unplug the wire from the sensor switch and connect it to earth and see if the fan comes on. If it does then your sensor switch is bad, if it doesn't come on then you have a wiring/fan problem or faulty fuse.

That's correct, that's how this one works as well.
