SOURCE: 2008 R1 cooling fan not
I have a 2002 ducati monster S4, it's fans come on at 212 degrees F, that is about 108 degrees C, They only come on in city traffic, and they have only come on twice in 8 years. Your coolant boils at 265F in a closed system, so depending on what the thermostat is set at, they are probably just getting ready to come on at 103. I kinda wish I had a switch that I could turn them on at any time, so it sounds like your bike is running normal, also, my bike runs at exactly 100 degrees hotter than the outside air temp, always. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: suzuki eiger 400 is overheating
sounds like your thermal switch that controls the fan isnt working, that would be the first place to look, try connecting the two terminals to the thermistor and see if the fan comes on, good luck

This is easy - replace your regulator. You probably have one or more shorted diodes (or transistors) in the regulator and/or the bridge rectifier between the alternator and the battery.
Diodes 'convert' AC made by an alternator into "DC" used by the battery. It does this by clipping off one-half of the power cycle. You can check a diode for proper operation using a flash light battery, a flash light lamp and a short piece of wire. A normal diode will let current pass in only one direction - the light will light when wired one way and not light when reversed. If it lights in both directions, the diode is bad. I dont know how to test a transistor. The repair in either case is replacement of the part. You cannot change a diode or a transistor in either component. If the part is obsolete, you may have to have a part built by an electronics technician.
Good luck with your repair and thanks for your interest in FixYa.com
