Hi Todd. The fan and sensor are wired outside of the ignition switch so it's normal for the fan to stay on or even come on after you shut the engine off. How long depends on the temperature that the sensor is reading. Mine after a good ride on a hot day may stay on for up to a minute. If yours stays on longer you may need a new temp sensor. The noise could be as simple as a loose mount on the fan housing causing it to vibrate, or a chipped / broken fan blade throwing it out of balance.
As far as normal operating temp, most report the needle sitting just to the left of the thermometer symbol and at most slightly right if it. That's where my bike runs as well but in heavy traffic/hot weather it's gon to between the symbol and the red zone but not more than that. Hope this helps you .
