I'm still trying to figure out if my electric fan works, i have yet to see it kick on and someone said these don't have a thermostat? I'm NOT overheating but it feels hot on my leg and I never see the fan kick on so I was kind of concerned. Any input would be appreciated, thanks!

Pretty sure I have only heard mine kick on while at idle when hot or when the bike is off sitting with the key on when we take a break.

It should kick on at around 190 degrees F...if your using the OEM ECU you can dis connect the water temp sensor on the back of the cylinder the fan should kick on when the key is on, note your F.I dash light will remain lit...!!!

With the Procom ECU dis connect the water temp sensor and use a paper clip and stick it into the connector connecting the wires together to force the fan to come on...

If the fan doesn't come on, check the 10amp fuses and fan relay for working properly...

ok thank goodness the fuse was blown. I couldn't see the other orange box it was hidden from me, didn't know there were 2. So now with a new fuse and unplugged from head, FAN kicks ON! Any idea why these blow fuses so often? I replaced the relay just in case. Thanks for you help guys!

a loose or bad connection can cause the voltage to drop and the amps to surge, for it's the amps that blows fuses...put dielectric grease in all your electrical connection to prevent corrosion which causes bad connections...
