Thx, fan works and comes on even when riding. Not sure how to check if the water is circulating. I thought it starts circulatjng as soon as the engine is running?

The fan will come on when its on the bikes being ridden. Reason I said when it's on the sidestand is its obv's easier,and safer to see if the waters being circulated.

The cooling system only comes on when it reaches a certain operating temp..the fan kicks in to cool the coolant flowing through the radiator.

I asked how old the coolant is as it stops cooling effectively after a number of years. It's a quick,and cheap job to change plus it gives you the opportunity to flush the system through as well.

If you have recently changed it could you have an air lock?

Re the idle speed..when the engines warm adjust it too !450-1500 rpm.

Kev's mod's on ebay,as is a pair of second hand ones.

I would recommend that you join the forum,if you havent already and then buy Kev's mod cd..its actually a download btw.

The cd has the answer to everything you want to know about how to make your bike run as it should.

I know you have bought aftermarket air filters..DNA stage 1+ 2 ?..standard exhausts and currently no Kev mod's ,these are air and fuel correctors.Simples to fit and transform the bikes running.
