Fan issues

Went riding for first time this season.and my fan wouldn't come on..actually boiled it over once..not good I know...any way,the wiring to the sensor on the radiator is fine.it's a spal fan I bought about 4 or 5 years ago plus I cleAned it really good when the bike was apart and it was spinning perfect...do those brass sensors on the radiator just go bad? Unless the fan went bad from sitting,which I can't imagine..my only other guess is the brass sensor? Any help would be appreciated..

Sensors have gone bad. There should be a test for them in the manual.

Nova,are you referring to the brass plug on the radiator? Is there more than one sensor? I see the 30a block under the seat..everything is fine in there..I'll check manual now

What's on the radiator is just a fan switch. Pull the connector and jumper it, then turn the key on. If the fan runs, replace the sensor/switch. If not, look to the fan breaker next. That's probably under the seat as well.

I had the same problem this weekend and it was the fuse under the seat corroded up (its the glass fuse in the link attached to the little crossbar between the battery and fuel tank). Trail fix was to simply take the fuse holder out and run it. I have also had the sensor in the radiator go bad.

I bought a new radiator fan switch and fan was still not coming on.i had to hardwire it with a inline fuse.going on a ride up mount Washington in new hampshire this coming weekend and had to have it working..I mounted the toggle on my rox dash pad next to ignition.
