Thumbs up

What temperature does the oil have to be for my cooling fan to come on at? It never seems to come on. Temperature sensor was replaced by dealer last fall. Still not coming on. Over temp light never lights up though. Dealer said fan comes on at 356 degrees F or 180 C is this right? Seems really hot to me.
Any help would be appretiated

I dont know what temp they are supposed to come on at but mine never comes on either . Mine has only come on a couple times since new , Usually when i have a passenger and it is really hot day and i am climbing alot of steep long hills it will come on , otherwise it never comes on . You probably just have not worked it hard enough yet

I don't know at what temp it kicks on. But I'm sure it's lower than 350 degrees!

My fan never runs unless I'm working it, like pulling heavy trailers at slow speeds, uphill. I stopped yesterday and pulled the seat off, checked the fuse just in case. It's not overheating, so I wouldn't worry about it.

They are not liquid cooled (well kinda) they are oil cooled, which is very different.

If you look at the Oil Cooler it is rather large. It's almost double the Suziki one on the same engine. It seems to disipate heat well. Mine hardly never comes on unless the cooler is packed with mud. It never seems to stay on long either. I've talked to me dealer about it and they say it's working that's why it never comes on. Just monitor it. If you keep thining its a problem then go back to the dealer. Sounds like most 400 AC.
