Coolant temp and radiator fan question
« on: March 22, 2016, 09:59:54 pm »
On a 2014 model, how many 'bars' is normal coolant operating temperature, as displayed on the info screen, and at what level will the radiator fan kick on?

This radiator contraption on a motorbike is new to me! (Sold the BMW, and I couldn't be happier!)

Mike, I have a '12 model, and the cooling fan on mine kicks on one bar from the top. I don't get concerned, because this engine tends to put off a lot of heat on any normal day.  And during any kind of riding, the temp bar graph rides 1-2 bars below the top.  :motonoises:
