The radiator fan actually does turn on.

Recommended Posts

The temps in San Diego were 104 and miserable today. Parking my drz in the garage after a stop and go commute from work, there was a whirring sound I could not place. Turns out the radiator fan was helping cool down my engine. I assumed it did not work.

Good to hear. I considered removing mine as I had never seen it in operation before. Now that I know it will work when required, I will leave it there.

Yep,  the temp light on your dash will be red when it is working,  i installed a ON/OFF manual fan switch on me bike,  as it gets crazy hot out here too,   ive had it kick in multiple times while climbing trails in 1st gear.

The temp light did not turn on with the fan activation. I left the key on and it stopped after a couple of minutes.

I bought one recently from Wheeling Cycle Supply. It seems they still have some stock.

Thats how it should be, the temp light comes on at a higher temperature than the fan does.

Does anybody know the exact temp the fan is supposed to activate at? I've never heard mine run, but I tested it off the battery and it spins. I have a vapor so it would be nice to know when it should be on

Mine turns on around 200-210 as indicated by my vapor.

i've never seen my fan on or the red light.   :confused:

 

i've been on 2 rides where i thought it should have come on (riding for 2 hours in 100+ degree weather) but sure enough it's never come on.

My fan never comes on while I am moving, even on really hot days. It only turns on when sitting still for a while, whether I am stuck at a really long red light or stuck in traffic or something like that.
