Just put a toolbag on my front forks last weekend and I noticed on a short ride yesterday (about 8 miles) that my fan came on for a few minutes. Is the bag possibly blocking too much air flow to the radiator, or was it just because it was a hot, humid day? The bag blocks about half of the space above the fender...

All of the above. Hot hunid day bike will run hotter. If bag is interupting air flow, it rwill run hotter. If the fan is just running more I wouldn't worry about it. If it's running all the time, you might have an issue.

First time I've had it come on while riding, but it didn't run all that long. Think I will try to move the bag up a little farther to the bottom of the horns to improve air flow. Thanks

I'd mount it right under the light. Won't hurt anything to cover the horns.
