ZX14 Cooling Fans

Hi everybody, also now a proud owner of the ZX14. (Still have the ZX12 and will keep it)

Just a question on the 14: When bike ran hot and the ignition switch is turned of, are the fans suppose to be still running to cool down? Traveling from the dealer home in trafic and desert...the 14 ran quiet hot (all bars but not flassing). At home when I switch of the bike, the fans also stopped (not like on the 12) but if I turn on the ignition without starting, the fans switch on....is this normal??

To be old and wise, you first need to be young and stupid...

Welcome to the club tekkies...

Yes that is normal, last Summer I had all the bars showing too in traffic. :shock: Don't know why the fan doesn't run with the key off.

Just the nature of the beast.... I'm going to try water wetter this Summer.

Winning isn't everything but losing isn't anything.
