    Radiator fan

    Hi
    I have now done 1000 miles on my MT10.
    The other day I ran it up in the garage and noted the radiator steaming and some fluid leaking. I could see no evidence of a hole so booked it in to dealer.

    Today they fix at no cost as the factory had not blead the cooling system correctly !,
    On the journey home it was only 6deg C but as I parked up the cooling fan kicked in.
    Is this normal MT10 ?

    Cheers

    I lowered my fan as part of flashing.
    Now kicks in at 98-99 degrees Celsius

    Out on mine last week in temps around 0 degrees c and the fan still kicked in when I stopped for a couple of minutes. Something you have to get used to I'm afraid. Hopefully removing the cat will lower the temperature a bit.

    I knocked the cats out my breadbox and noticed a slight decrease in running temperature. However, when you are idling at a red light no difference. Cools down pretty quick when you start moving again.

    A good flash from FTECU will sort out the ignition timing, fueling and start the fan start up at a lower level reducing the running temp by 20 to 30 * F get the FTECU

    OK thanks folks as long as no damage is being done to the engine then I can live with that.
    I will look into the flashing on other posts ?
    Places in the UK ?
    Cheers
