Needle got to near top before I shut it off.

So first ride of a few miles today. Great fun bike. The odd cough a splutter. But loads of torquey low down power and great low down weight making slow manoeuvring a doddle.
But when I was idling the cooling fan did mot click in.
How do I go about test the components to find the fault.
Plain simple English please. Lol.

Ahhhhh might help if the motor wire connector was actually connected and not just push up next to sensor.
But the looking a the good old horn wiring, I'm not that surprised! 😆
