so what makes the bike run hot and trigger the fan to come on? i know this is a general question but i will try to explain it. my friend and i have the same bike and same yr (08 700r)....and we always ride together. and heres the part i cant explain, my fan is constantly on and his hardly comes on. i did a day trip to the dunes the other day and my fan turned on within 20 minutes. does this have to do anything with the break in period when we first purchased the bikes? have to do with mapping and fuel? would engine ice help keep the bike run cooler? thanks for your help.
