Re: Uh Oh
I would not call this normal, not with a fan kick-on point that is lower, this just started happening and the temperature outside isn't hot enough for me to correlate it with that. The fan should be enough sufficient to, at a minimum, stabilize the temperature. Normally, while sitting at an idle, the fan was able to move enough air to slowly decrease the temperature. Instead, the fan was going full blast and the temperature simply continued to rise by 6 degrees before I shut it off. I will observe what it does when I ride it again, hopefully today was simply a fluke.
If it were a stock ECU, it would be normal, because the kick-on point is significantly higher. However, even when it kicks on, the fan is enough to stabilize and decrease the temperature.
