Good day all, earlier this year I fitted a home made mudflap on the Swing as I found the rad gets a pasting from road dirt. I have since noticed the cooling fan comes on much sooner and stays on longer. The temperature never goes beyond three bars though so I'm not concerned - just an observation to add to the knowledge base!

My temperature guage has never gone above 3 either, but the fan still comes on in traffic.
Not worried though, they seem tough bikes these!

The weather has been pretty warm lately. It's not just a case of the warmer weather coinciding with you fitting the mud flap is it?

I can't say I noticed any difference in the amount that my fan switched on when I fitted my mud flap but I have noticed it coming on quite a lot more in the recent warm weather.

I've never had the temperature gauge go above three bars either.

That may well be the case Cookie.

Same here, pull into the garage on a hot day and idle a minuet or two will trigger mine.
