I notice in the factory service manual that it says the cooling fan should come on when the temp gauge gets into the "hot" range. Is "hot" not a bad place to be? In a car that's where you start cracking heads. Is "hot" not a big problem on a liquid cooled bike?

This is a 94. From reading posts it sounds like the newer bikes run more consistent temps.

I thought this was covered in the other thread you started here:

Anything over the halfway mark can be called "hot"... The real issue is how long and how far the needle moves from there.

Sitting in traffic on a hot day you might see the gauge go past the halfway point... But if should go back down once you are moving.

Sounds to me like you are overly concerned with your engine tempature. Is there a reason? Is your gauge staying past the half way mark? If your fan is kicking on, and the bike is NOT overheating, what's your question here ??
