    Cooling fan

    As most off you know the s1k runs very hot, and it just goes over 100degs as soon as one slows down. Is there a way to lower the starting temperature of the cooling fan? Had a look with my GS911 but couldn't find anything. Has anyone managed to do so?

    Why would you want to? It’s a pressurised system and the ‘boiling point’ is way higher. The techs at BMW have spent many hours setting the point at which the fan comes on, it’s a non problem and you won’t get ahead of the game/meltdown! Unless you have a cooling problem, in which case look elsewhere?

    When the outside temperature is over 30 for more 6 months, a blast furnace between your legs is the last thing you need

    will only make it worse as the fan draws air through the rad,not blown through,so ill be blown on to yor legs even more

    you can wire the fan to a manual switch though if thats what you really want to do,lots do it on track to help cool bike down on an in lap.
