I have had a couple of bikes that ran hot for other reasons besides the fan. Never figured it out. But I was able to partially solve the issue by wiring the fan motor directly to the ignition, which meant the fan was on whenever the engine was. Of course I believe fixing it right, the way the engineers designed it is usually the best idea. I still have my original intake and exhaust systems, including the "goats belly" OTOH, I have TOC cam chain tensioners because oem ones were junk, and a TPE stator because Kawasaki wanted almost $500 for one and TPE stators are supposed to be better. Once in a while engineers mess up too. Having to pull the engine to replace a stator is a good example of bad engineering.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
