Just started riding again after a 3 year hiatus and I forgot how hot summer riding is with the radiator fan blowing on my legs. For those who have changed to a lower temperature fan switch, does it make much of a difference for riding comfort? I would expect the fan runs more, hence blowing more air but at a lower temperature.

What is this 'hot summer' you speak of? :confused:

:D

IMO the lower temp fan switch would be worth a try, it should help a bit probably. Much better for the engine too.

It has not been hot up here but I have run the Bird with the new sensor for a couple hundred miles and like the higher temp switch have yet to have the fan come on. I have ridden some city but it has not been nearly as warm as you get (yet!).:)

95F+ here. I installed the lower temp switch about a month ago. I DO see a difference. There have been several times the fan has been running when I stop after being in traffic. The fan comes on earlier and shuts off shortly after I turn off the engine. There is a thread in the maintenance tips and tricks section
