1981 Honda Goldwing GL1100 Cooling Fan

Post by baird1jr »



Hello everyone,
I recently bought my first bike; a 1981 GL1100. One of the previous owners bypassed the cooling fan(I'm assuming there was a sensor that told the fan when to kick on/off) with a wire I have to plug in. Easy enough. Once it's at operating temp. I plug it in. My questions are
1.) How long after I shut the bike off should I let the fan run?
2.) Do I have to consider a drain on the battery(brand new)?
3.) Should I consider replacing the sensor? Whats involved? Expenses?
