Question about 1988 Honda VT 800
First, with the motorcycle cold, take off the radiator cap and make sure thaat the engine is full to the top. Use 50/50 NON-SILICA formula antifreeze to top up the coolant(GM Dexcool), Honda, etc). Be sure to top up the over flow bottle if you are low.
The most common problem for the fan not running is the fan switch. On the radiator the fan switch has two wires going to it. The sensor with one wire is the temp sender. On some models the switches are on the radiator cap filler tube. They run close to $100. Before replacing the fan switch be sure to check that the fan motor is still working by running power directly to it. If the fan motor is bad they can run $200-$400.
