The fan on my 06 gxsr 600 comes on when i crank it but then goes right back off an will not cool my engine I have checked the fuzes and they work what else could be the problem


Hi,

The fan should not actually come on untill the engine goes over a temprature set by a thermostat,
when riding around normally the fan doesnt normally come on except when you are waiting at traffic lights or staying still,

You can test the thermostat just start the bike and let it idle the fan should start between 80degC and 90 degC if the engine temp goes over 110 -120degC and does not kick in there is definately a issue there with the thermostat, it doesnt sound like the wiring, fuses or relay as it runs for you sometimes.

Hope this helps:)

If you don't have a check engine light, Start with the air and fuel filter, work your way up to a tune up. Clean the throttle body as best you can on the inside, behind the throttle plate/s

When coming to a stop bike does not want to idel wright. check engine comes on whin you first crank bike then goes off.


Its normal for the lights to cycle when you first start,not to stay on though.Try cleaning or replacing air filter.Also try running fuel system cleaner to clean out varnish.If still acting up maybe need to clean the fuel system by open up carb and clean trash out of jet or injectors (dont forget the fuel filter)

Wont idel when warmed up


seems to me there may be a problem with the transmission, because you say it runs fine in neutral and dies when you put it in gear!!!
only logical thing if everything else you mentioned has been ruled out!!!

2001 XL1200S Cuts out and dies at highway speeds for a moment


Did you put a new battery in it? If not have it load tested and replace if needed. Check the grounds and make sure they are clean and tight. Check the stator by going to the plug on the right front down tube, with a muti meter take a reading with the bike running on the side that goes back toward the engine, I forget the values but you should get a reading at idle and then as you rev the motor the reading should climb. If all of the above check out OK the problem will be your voltage regulator.

V star 1100 05' starting problem


Hi Bullsport,

This problem occurs on too much starter cranking i.e. the engine doesnt respond or fire up at a go.
Try to check the bike's spark plugs.
Probabley it needs a good tune up ( the bike).

Good luck.

Engine runs rough after about ten minutes /idles really low


Just trowing some suggestions out there, but, I would check the idle air control valve (solenoid) or the throttle position sensor. If they check out then my last guess would be the map sensor or the vaccuum to the map sensor. Hope I was able to help. Best wishes.

2005 Triumph Daytona 955i Dead Battery and Check engine Light


I have just found my 30 amp fuse blown on my daytona , this prevents the alternator working , it was reading 10.9v before I changed the 30 amp fuse , now it reads 14.5 volts , I think I blew it as I didnt know how to put the alarn into service mode and left the ignition on , anyway I am hoping its just that , 3 heat up/cool down cycles and the engine management light should go out
