  • Fans not working.

    When are the two fans on both sides under the air duct ducts to the frame supposed to kick on. i turned the bike on and cranked it and they don't kick on. electrical problem? or do they only turn on when in gear? that doesn't seem right

      Yep, they're thermostatically controlled.

Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles."

        They automatically turn on when the bike is running excessively warm. The switch actuating the fans, assuming you have an R, is brown, visible in the middle fairing vent-hole on the right side. It is screwed into the radiator.

        Many of us who live in warmer climates, or sit in traffic for prolonged periods will replace the switch with another that engages at lower temps, or install a manual switch on the handlbars.

          If you see your temp getting up to 225 you should prolly do one of the mods mentioned. Thats much to warm fo my liking.

                  Another over 90 degree day here in tarball heaven. Just the thought of stopping at a red light sends the thermostat up past 200 degrees easily.

                      i have the fan switch and when its over 80 degrees out i turn the fans on when at a light or stuck in traffic. but as long as you keep moving no matter how hot it is she stays at about 180.

                          I was getting worried for a while. It's Thursday here and I hadn't seen a post about fan operation / turn on temperature this week.

                          All is normal again.

                            LOL....Agreed but it is alarming the first time you look down and see 216. I live in the stix,184 constant with engine ice.

                              Yeah, in ga. It's HOT right now. And traffic. Not to mention my batteery died when I discoveried the park setting on accident and a friend l,eft the bike on after a jump trying the charge the battery. All he did was cook out ALL ofr my coolant. That and ridin in 110 heat has the frame cookin my legs so I'm lookin at coolin options. 225 is common for me
