let the bike idle until the temp gauge reaches just over halfway - fan should kick in - just watch the the temp doesn't go into the red - if so - your sensor doesn't work and, well, then your motor blows up... :dry:

A and C models very easy to test, pull the wire off the sensor at the bottom
of the radiator and earth it. If the fan runs then the fan circuit and fuse is good, then it can only be the sensor.
It the bike boils check that you have pressure on the water pipes.
When the engine is hot they should be firm, if not replace the radiator cap.
Does the red temp warning light on your C model come on?

Does the red light come on when the bike is in neutral?
If not check the light bulb.

The fan fuse is on the right hand side of the bike.
Take off the right shroud on the fuel tank, you will see a whitish plastic tube cable tied to the
small frame, that's the fuse, its a glass fuse and sometimes they fail due to vibration.
