1050 S3 Radiator Fan

For those riding the S3 in warmer climates such as Australia / South Africa & California. Do you find that the radiator fan seems to come on far too frequently -- particularly when in town? Now that Summer is upon us here in the southern hemisphere, it is becoming all the more apparent... After coming off a long freeway ride home from work, the fan comes on virtually as I come to the first stop street!

Please give me your experiences on this one...

On my Fireblade the fan very rarely comes on, the temp gauge hovering somewhere between 79-82c. Only when I am stuck in traffic on a hot day does the temp begin to climb, the fan coming on at 102c/103c.

Obviously the Trumpet runs hot... How do you wrap the headers?
I wish Triumph would give us a temperature readout in degrees c or f rather than the bars! I think we are intelligent enough to understand a digital readout! Afterall, even Honda riders are..!
