Guys, I'm in need of some help...I noticed my bike temp is exceeding 215* when I am sitting in traffic and recently noticed my electric fan isn't coming on!? Have any of you experienced this before? I'm going to dive a little deeper into it this weekend but was curious if anyone had pointers or tips to check out when troubleshooting?

Thanks guys!

It's an '03. I'll give that a try and let you know, thanks for the guidance.

It's not coming on even over 225; the cluster even started flashing temp at one point...

I have the same issue. I powered up my fan and it works. I found a leed that powers up while running but now my battery keeps dieing. Does the fan draw that much from the battery that the charging system cant keep up?

highest i have seen on mine in 6 years in 228 sitting in stop & go traffic on a 100 degree day. when it starts getting over 230 i would worry. not really sure what the danger zone is.

Shouldn't.... I am on the original battery from '03 still and I have NEVER had to charge it.

i would test your batt. to make sure its good. put multimeter on batt. while bike is running to see what the voltage is. may have a regulator/rectifier going bad.

I got my Z to work this morning so I'll see what it's charging at.
I ran the thing for 4 hours the day before yesterday and the following day I went to start it and click click click. I slapped the charger on it and within minutes of charging the battery was up.
