Check the coolant level. There is an overflow bottle on the left side, behind a cover with a circle on it, just behind the kickstand. Unfortunately, the temp sensor used by the ECU to turn on the fan, is located near the top of the cooling system. Once it's uncovered by a low coolant level, the fan will no longer work reliably. The fix is a proper coolant level.
It's possible the overflow bottle has fluid, but removing the radiator cap will still confirm a low fluid level. This is a cooling system vacuum problem, but we can discuss that issue if you discover it.
Hi guys after draining the radiator cooling liquid and replaced with a genuine coolant still the radiator fan is not working, knowing that I made a complete drain and excellent coolant level and making sure no air is captured anywhere. The fan fuse is in good condition also, Is there any other way to check before opening the complete fan.
Well, now you have to do some troubleshooting. You could remove the fan and apply power, to make sure it runs correctly. It could be a bad temp sensor, as Hot Cruiser said. I haven't checked, but there is most likely a relay that turns the fan on, so you could test to see if it energizes. The service manual has a surprising number of component tests in it and how to do them. Basically, you have to start eliminating what the problem is not, to narrow down what it could be. Sounds like you've already started that with the fuse.
Thank you gentleman's I will start testing manually by opening the fan for direct connection if it's the same then will go towards the heat switch relay, it's getting hot here in Bahrain and having the bike running without the fan on, it will cause more damage to the bike, God bless you all...
I had to make an emergency stop the other day on my 900 (accident avoided), but encountered something unusual. When I pulled in the clutch lever and applied the front brake simultanously, the throttle seemed to freeze with the engine revved up (to around 3-4K) as I braked to a stop. I had just...
I have the a stock 12' head light in v900 classic.
What is the next legal, but better HEADlight bulb upgrade ( just the camry verson, not the ferrari version) thats great for during the day or night?
Also, is the labor hard, what does it intail?
thanks to all!
I have a Clymers manual but the only adjustment covered is the free-play gap of the clutch lever itself. I did that.
The way my clutch works, when I'm starting from a dead stop, I have to release the clutch lever almost all the way out for the clutch to begin engaging (friction)...
So with a look into the pipes on my '08 it looks like the previous owner removed the outer or last baffle. So if that's the case should I also mod the air filter / air box to kind of balance it out? Does K&N make a filter for the VN900?
