Hey all! I have a 2000 Legend TT 900 that was recently in the local Triumph dealership for work. All fluids were drained and refilled during the process and, since getting the bike back, it seems to me that my cooling fan kicks on way more than it used to. Yesterday for example it was 70 degrees here in Central PA and, as soon as I completed about a 20 mile ride in the country with no traffic lights, the fan kicked on as soon as the ignition was off. It does it almost every time I take a ride like this while last year it only kicked on if it was a really hot day. Is this a good thing or could I be low on coolant or perhaps have a thermostat that's sticking? Any thoughts appreciated. I bought the bike last year from a the original owner and just turned 9000 miles on this garage kept beauty!

Checking the coolant level would be a good cautionary measure.

A new thermostat might be a good idea they aren't to costly, but i would bet on low coolant like Greyfell said.

If the coolant was low wouldn't it heat up faster and trip the coolant temp light?

Depends on how low it is.

Coolant was low. Triumph shop in Camp Hill, PA confirmed and topped it off for me. Fan still kicking on but we're in the middle of a heat wave so we'll have to wait it out. Bike stalled at three red lights that day for no apparent reason. I guess next I'll be looking to replace the coils.
