I just picked my 08 red V on Saturday
I noticed there is no temp indicator lamp
when the key is turned on. I checked the
manual and is shows where the temperature
light is. Question shouldn't the temp indicator
lamp light like the battery and oil light
and then go out after the bike is running.

Thanks Dave.

My thoughts are the Temp light will only come on if there is a high Temp. When you switch ON the bike bike is not on high Temp, so you wont get any signal to the light.

just my 2cts thoughts.

:cheers:

Never seen that light on my bike so presume as fastoman says it only comes on when you have a problem and that would be a good time to stop

Yes it should come on (as a self-test mode) but it doesn’t... because some nitwit at Kawasaki designed it that way!?!

So, when the temperature light is out you can be confident that either the bike isn’t running hot or the light just doesn’t work.

My '09, temp light comes on with key ON, stays on until engine is started, then temp light goes out.

Interesting... You’re the only one I’ve seen say that.

Sorry, my bad, that's the oil pressure light.....I hate small idiot lights with old man eyes....

Thanks to all for the feed back. looks like the general
consensus is that the temp light does not do a self test
with key on. I agree that it should! if there is a modification
that can be done I would sure like know how to do it

Thanks Dave.
