How long shouldthe coolant fan on my vulcan nomad run when I ride? It seems to come on early in the ride and basically continues to run. It kicks on within the first ten minutes no matter what the outside air temperature is.

SOURCE: i am putting my 1700

I live in Minnesota . I vote for fuel stabilizer and charging the battery overnight once a month. In cold weather batteries hibernate in the cold and do not need constant tending (unless your vehicle has live electronics when it is turned off like a clock, or radio with memory,etc.) If you start and run your bike you will collect moisture in your exhaust(rust), on cool down you collect moisture all over your motor, waste fuel, run a high risk of fowling plugs, put extra wear and tear on your starter, and run down your battery starting your cycle in unfavorable conditions. Definitely: Stabil and charge once a month.

Check all the connections make sure they aren't loose. Check the ignitor module and make sure it is plugged in correctly. Your rectifier might be dead or dying.
Might even be your side stand lockout switch. If that is dead you won't be going anywhere.

SOURCE: 1992 kawasaki vulcan 1500:

The air should bleed out until coolant appears at the housing.
If air keeps coming back maybe a head gasket problem.
Is the cap good

2001 Honda Foreman 450es is it normal for the oil cooling fan to come on and off when trail riding thanks

Seems normal to me. An oil cooler fan works to keep the oil cool just like a radiator fan works to keep the coolant cool. It doesnt necessarily run constantly but it kicks on as needed.

How do I determine whether an overheating problem is caused by the water pump?

you can be running lean gas
basically if radiator is very hot then the pump is working
squeeze the hose it should have lots of resistance
use a thermal gun it should be constant temp all over

Need radator for kawasaki vn 1500 classic tourer 2001 is the driffter the same radator as the vn 1500 classic plz hellllllllllllp

TO ALL VN1500 OWNERS....This once happen to me,
I went to the garage to start the bike "Nothing ""The first thing is the lights are bright but no turning over,Next you think the solenoid is kaput but the answer was very simple and the fix takes 30 seconds..
Do not take the bike to bits looking for other problems and look at the clutch leaver and you will see some wires going into a plastic shroud going into the switch in the clutch leaver, Make sure this has not popped out if its connection as it some times may do after a few years due to constant turning on the handlebars,
When this is not connected you will have a bike that will not fire up but comes alive and you will hear a clicking noise but this is from the engine carb area and every function of the bike will work but it will not turn over, Worth looking at and saves sixteen quid for a starter unit you never needed.

The fan runs for a long time after i turn the engine off

is it using coolant? may have a leak or waterpump seal gone.
Does it over heat? may need a new head gasket
The sensor that opperates the fan relay may need replacement, the fan relay may be sticking on.

probably time to service the coolant system, flush, new coolant,thermostat and cap, pressure test the system.

I have a 98 1500 Nomad and have lost drive power twice after a long ride. The gears seem to shift well in the beginning and continue for a couple hours. I will stop and take a break for 30 Min - 1 hr and...

Contaminated fluid in the hydraulic clutch actuation system. Instead of a cable, your bike has a hydraulically actuated clutch. This system is great because it offers low maintenance and a relatively light clutch lever pull.
You will need to flush the system, refill with the appropriate fluid (check the owner's manual, but it is probably DOT4 brake fluid), inspect for leaks, and bleed.

Car running hot, fans operate only in park

Does your ac work? When you turn on your ac, all the fan should be working at all times. See if they remain on when you are driving. If they go off. check the CCM module located in front of the vehicle, it is a metallic box usually black in color not to far from the radiator. I can't remember if it was the right side or left side of the radiator. The inside of that box has electronic circuit which also drive the compressor directly. You really can't test this box, the only thing you can do is visually check it for burnt components inside. I had to repair this box on my 96 taurus because a transistor inside was open that drive the compressor clutch solenoid. I belive this box also controls the fan. Unplug the connection to this box, to see if it affects the fan by turning it off or on. Make sure the key is on tho. when you check it.
