    Oddly enough, I installed a direct switch to the fan, Its not working either. I will have to investigate my installed switch this weekend. I still aim to change the sensor to ensure a fail safe.

    Hey Mike,

    Here's the link to the switch I got: http://www.af1racing.com/store/Scripts/prodView.asp?idproduct=65748

    Hope it solves your problem!

    For my Eldorado I got a dipstick with temp guage from the bikahaulics group in England,
    its about 12.00 its plug and play.
    BUT it has a red warning area and thats at 110C right where the Guzzi runs in stop and go with ambient temps of 85F.;
    while cruising on the freeway it will run at 80C ,
    and in hot stop and go with more stop it will run at 130C

    My fan runs all the time in stop and go. It doesn't have to be 90, more like 80 degrees and above. It's easy to miss when the engine is running, but if I shut down then turn the ignition on it runs.

    Check that you haven't got some tar and stones thrown up into the fan. These horrible little critters stopped the fan on my bike once.

    Likewise...cant say I have ever heard it and did not come on after a 25 mile spirited ride as a test.

    Like others will probably just set up a switch to manually to turn it on.

    BTW...which is the "HOT" inlet side of the cooler the right or the left?? Would love to set up a small oil temp gauge off the inlet side.

    I've had my Eldo nearly two years and 25,000 kms, last sunday I stopped for fuel after a long slow trip through traffic, turned the bike back on and heard an unusual noise which turned out to be the fan working, first time I have ever heard it. It's not loud and there's no way you would hear it with the motor running.
