Is it common for a 1986 750 to get really hot w/o the fan on? I pretty much have to have it on at all times when stopped. :doh:
Mine too... can you hear the coolant gurgling and/or steam hissing when you park it? Just wondering if I should do something drastic immediately about the cooling system before I keep riding.I've seen mine at the 3/4 mark a few times. Doesn't help that it's 100º outside already.
Kevin are you saying you uplugged the wire from the thermo sensor cooling fan switch on the lower left side of the radiator, and the fan kept running?But every now and then - like last night, for example - it just keeps running and running, eventually killing the battery. I found the electrical connection, and I can just unplug it when I get off the bike if needed. But I am wondering what could cause this?
I tried someone's previous advice, and disconnected the wire that connects to the sensor at the bottom, and the fan still ran afterwards.
that could come in handy. I drilled through the fan and the disc that goes on the motor and tied the fan to the disc with wire, then siliconed the **** out of it with high temp ultra black its pretty stout, but now my fan isnt turning on, which is weird because I jumped the fan with a hotbox, and it worked, but its not turning on when I plug it into the harness. When I took the radiator out, I didnt see where the open end on the ground wire came from, so I think thats my issue...I dont have a proper ground. Ive tried all sorts of spots to ground it too, and my fan just aint kickin' on, which is also weird because it worked fine yesterday. Just didnt have and blades, haha. Sorry to takeover the thread, but I figure...why make another one since now its apparently an electrical issue...Now...anyone know how the ground is supposed to be set up?
