Question about 1988 Yamaha FZR 1000
I have a recently brought a 1988 yamaha fzr 1000 genesis
as soon as i turn the ignition on the fan starts running
The fan is driven by a temperature switch on the manifold on the right of your bike. Remove the switch unit and test continuity with a multimeter. If you find no resistance when it is cold that means the unit is faulty and needs to be replaced. If there is no continuity then submerge the unit in boiling water. remember your bike normally only starts its fan when the engine water gets to about 95deg, which is when the circuit should close, then test the continuity again. If this switch is fine then you have a short somewhere that is closing the circuit to allow the fan to operate.
Good luck if this is the case as it is normally difficult to track

This is an ignition problem, (probability of short circuit in the ignition head wiring). U may have to repair this.
