Hi I just wondering my fan on 2008 Uly start running only when I turn engine off. It is cold in UK now so I did not have a chance to see if it will run in traffic, only got my bike 2 weeks ago[confused]. Should it start fan when engine running and it hot I am not moving (traffic), or only when I turn engine off?:)

normal...it runs to remove the hot air @ the rear cylinder.
when riding the airflow is sufficient ;)

My fan runs in traffic all the time while riding. Even comes on at stop lighs right after getting off the highway. Perfectly normal.

It's 80 here now in the winter time and my fan comes on when I shut it off the motor and also when in traffic.Enjoy the ride!!!

A right side air scope will cut down on the amount of time it runs. You can get a factory one or I believe Leofox sells an after market one. I got the factory one and it helps alot.

I just had my 2009 ss serviced and flashed the ECM with the new maps, my fan runs after 20kmh, and when the engine is hot at idle, its funky as now(but the new maps run heaps better with my pipe)

Thats why I dont like the new mapping and asked for it NOT to be done to my 2008XT as whats the point in the fan running continously when you're going over 18mph........
