Got a question about cooling fans, I've had my '03 LT for 4 years now and as far as I know the electric fans have never ran, guess I've been lucky to never get caught in serious traffic.
About to leave on a long road trip and want to make sure they work and work properly, so my question what is the best way to make them come on? Just crank the bike and let it sit?

Thanks

Might check your fuses, 4 amp.
Seems odd that they have never turned on, mine have been on when I exited the freeway at a stoplight.


later..Randy

I've had my 07 for 7 years and I think the fans only came on once or twice and that was after getting caught going through town, stop and go traffic in 90 degree temps. I try and avoid riding in hot temps and I also ride in rural settings so I can keep moving, if you do the same type of riding your fans won't come on either.

Every time I change antifreeze I run the engine at 2000 rpm in neutral until the fans kick on.

Norton, that's exactly the type of riding I do....I hate taking the bike into a city, even a city that I know.

I just changed my anti-freeze, so I'll give that a try.

Thanks

Keep an eye on the temp gauge the fans should kick on just before the red zone.
