  • Fan activation temp

    It has always bothered me when I get stopped in traffic, only to watch the temp rise on the bike. I frequently noticed that the temp got up to 95 degrees (82-83 being normal) with the fan still not kicking on. After getting fed up with that, I put on a manual override (thanks tlrcraz1 ).

    My question is...what temp does the fan kick on at? It kind of bothers me that the factory bikes don't come with a manual override...as I think that most people put on/would like to have one.
    Be good, and if you can't be good...be really, REALLY bad!!

    You need a manual fan switch.

    I believe TLcraz1 still sells a kit for around $15

    To answer your question, the fan kicks on automatically at ~ 226F

          My Tiller runs at 180-183 degrees most of the time. Am I running hot?

            That's perfectly normal. Exactly where mine runs

                    Just curious if anyone has tried the Muzzy fans to keep their TL cooler along with the Fan swith?
