The fan won't come on until the coolant exceeds boiling point.

Thanks. Bro just wanted to know I didn't know if it turns on when I turn on the
Bike

The fan should almost never run, except when you're stuck in slow traffic on hot days. I don't even bother keeping the fans on my bikes.

:eek: seriously? Maybe for a race bike:)

Street sport bikes should have fans since their radiators aren't designed big enough to tolerate stop and go driving.

I notice my oil stays clear and yellow MUCH longer since I've done the fan over-ride switch and don't hesitate to flip it on whenever going slow.

Street sport bikes are designed to be moving, why allow yourself to get stuck in traffic :)
I have occasionally had to ride in traffic and the bike can certainly get hot but it cools down almost instantly once moving again.

It'd be nice to not have to go through traffic... but I do live in a subburb of the biggest city in Minnesota... so I have a few stops and 30mph zones to navigate to get to the open road.
