When you get home from a hard ride, do you leave the ignition on, or do you turn it off?

If you leave the ignition on, after you have killed the engine with the kill switch, if it is hot it should start running...

Most of the time when I get home, I'll use the kill switch as I pull into the garage... then let her run for a few minutes to cool off and the fan runs nicely...

Maybe I'm just used to my old Volusia...It was so loud it was almost embarassing at a stoplight...Guess I'll try to catch it running tomorrow...

Going through town I can feel it when it kicks in even while riding, the legs get nice and warm :p

Mix a 95 degree, 90% humidity day and get stuck at a light............... then have the fan kick in on top of that , you get that melting feeling real quick ;)

If you have never heard it come on do what BigBen is talking about and if it does not come on, there is a post on here about the fan not being plugged in properly.

Anyway, I have not had mine come on while on the road that I have notice but have heard it when idleing and in the above situation.

the temps at night around here....well i welcome the fan at night it sure fills good to have that heat hit your whole body. wish there was a way to turn it on all the time just for that reason. i know i could do it but just not worried about it right now.

The only time I can hear mine is when I shut the bike off with the kill switch, and it stays running for a few seconds :bigthumbsup:
