When I stop, and the key is on, a fan sounds like it is running in the front of the bike. It shuts off after a while. Is this normal or is something overheating?
Thanks

I assume you mean after you've been out riding. It's perfectly normal. There's a thermostat that tells the fan when to turn on and when you stop and loose the air moving across the radiator, it's normal for it to heat up enough to start the fan.

My 750 fan almost never kicks on but a buddy's 1100 starts within 20 seconds when at a light. Must be normal for that model.

I can **** near predict when and where my fan will kick on based on where I"m riding on my normal routes.

Sounds like normal operation to me.

Reminds me of that scene in Friday:

Craig: Shhh...I can hear my heart beating.
Smokey: Man, that's what it's supposed to do!

:D

if my fan didn't come on a lot I would start worrying. Course it was 110 on the way home today
