    Where abouts are you in the world twinsspark? Very hot climate? Have you thought of adding a manual switch for the fan?
    Full of Hot air? Intercool yourself............ you know it makes sense

    Re: Cooling Fan

    I have the manual fan switch mod and constantly spend 30 mins not moving much in Seattle traffic. I've never had a low charge problem. I do know that the previous owner installed a new RR a few years ago. Guess I will just count myself lucky

    Re: Cooling Fan

    I find it downright bizzare what happened with my Bird temperature. Before I installed the manual switch I had issued with fan switching on late, bike going in 115'C even if outside temp wasn't high...so few days ago I installed manual switch, used it few times, people on the forum advised me against it because it could drain the battery on low rpm's...

    And now I ride around in these scorching heats, slow city traffic and all...and bike is cooler than ever. LOL.

    Check if you have left the fan switch to ON. Lol.

    In a more serious note, I'm going to replace my entire chinese rad with a custom one because ever since I put it on the bike runs hotter and hotter and there's nothing I can do to cool it down.

    Re: Cooling Fan

    it's definitely off I can hear the fan kicking in and out occasionally but regarding your China rad going hot - perhaps check the clearance from the headers? My mechanic told me he had to intervene a bit to push it away from headers, so maybe that could be the case?
