No light, but 85 degrees doesn't mean it will go on. 85 degrees in city stop and go for about 20 minutes and it might. It would not go on in those temps if you are running most of the time....highway, mountain roads, etc. Mine never goes on till i'm in major stop and go on hot days.

I agree. The fan will never kick on while you are rolling good. But sit at a few stop lights and you will hear it kick in. However it’s quiet! As a test I would say at your next stop leave it running when you park. Prepare for at least 5 min and see if you hear it kick on with no ear plugs and helmet off.
