Question Cooling fan problem on triumph 600 - September 30, 2009, 03:02 PM

I have noticed that my Daytona 600 is running hot: maxxing at 105 C or so. I further noticed that my fan is not running. So I check into my manual to see where my thermostat is, and I don't find a thermostat, but those wacky Brits have a "coolant temperature sensor" listed in the cylinder head. Is this right? Or am I misunderstanding the nomenclature?

Bonus:


any and all advice appreciated.

Thermostat, Coolant temperature sensor, all the same.

Have you checked fuses?

well, spud, I have been doing something very similar to that. And the bike has made it a lot of fun. It turns out that a 110 HP bike goes faster than my 60 hp ninja. But right now I'm taking a bike repair class, and this is one of my little projects. I did in fact check the fusebox, and the fuse is good.

At what temp is the fan supposed to turn on?

The manual has the cooling fan switch on temp as 100 C, and the thermostat opening temp as 85 C.

replace it.

happens on gsxrs all the time...simple and usually a cheap fix

you could also look into the fan switch mod - manually control the fan, while still having it turn on and off when it's supposed to.

Thermostat= the widget that controls the flow of coolant through the water pump. It begins to open at 85*c. By the time the temp goes to 100*C, it should be 100% open.
Coolant temp sensor= the sending unit that varies the electrical resistance and allows it to be read as a value (your temp reading on your dash).
In some bikes, the ECU will kick on the fan at a given resistance (temp). In other bikes, there is a fan switch that also is inserted into the coolant flow that turns the fan on/ off. Totally separate from the temp sensor.
Hope this points you in the right direction.

Before you do that, check the fan relay. Hopefully it is more accessible. Make sure it is in its socket securely. Just an idea.

Looks more and more like nothing is accessable on this sucker. The good news is that I'm getting better and better at pulling the plastics off. I Think the relay is under the box as well. I'll tell y'all how it plays out in class this week. Thanks for all the help thus far.

maxxing at 105C or 212F isn't that big of a deal.

i've seen bikes on group rides (sitting at a stop) operate normally around 221F during the Summer....obviously the temp drops once moving again.

my overheat indicator doesn't kick on until 245F
