1997 model, and fairly low mileage..
2 hour ride, decent pace, nothing to write home about, cool weather.
After riding to the destination, turning around, heading home, I'm about 3 miles away from home and I notice the temp guage hovering below max (i panic) and look around the bike as i'm moving, nothing leaking, nothing smoking, fan is not on, i get onto a short stretch of highway and I pick up the pace in hopes that the temp drops, it does, i'm now off the highway and just filtering my way through, about 1 mile left till i get home, the temp starts to crawl back up, still no white smoke anywhere, no smell of burning coolant, no fan..
haven't looked at everything just yet but i'm going to check out the Fan switch, see if i get it to come on by feeding it live current.. i'm also going to check coolant/water level when the engine cools down, anything else I should be checking for??
