Instead of stickying a dozen or so topics, and missing a few more important ones, this topic will serve as an index to tips, tricks, warnings, and other important subjects. Feel free to post links to threads that you feel are important, and I'll add the best ones to this post.

I'll wager that this question has been answered a thousand times but I wasn't here, so, how do I test my radiator fan? It comes on sometimes but not always, seems like there are times when it should be on and it isn't.

just jumper between the 2 wires that attach to the temp switch that is on the lower left side of the radiator, ignition on or off, that circuit is always "enegized", and the fans should start spinning when the connection is jumpered. easy test.

Thank you. I'll keep an eye on it. Just rode home 5 miles on a 95 degree day and it ran for maybe 2 minutes after turning the engine off. That seems right. Do some people remove the lower faring for better cooling? Mine came without that.
