While standing still (or barely moving) in traffic, is it better to keep the engine and fan running or shutting the engine off?
I also live in an area with temperatures above 30℃ from May till October and I am concern with overheating.
Shutting the engine off, also shuts off the cooling system. This leaves the coolant that is sitting in the engine to get very hot, while if you leave the bike running it will keep circulating.
When I get home I hear my fan turn on as the bike is idling before shutdown. When the bike is killed it does not continue with the fan or anything till cool like some other bikes i have had in the past.
