    That's what they do, so long as the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor doesn't trigger the coolant temperature warning dash light to come on I wouldn't worry about it.

    When was the last time you changed the coolant? The coolant should be replaced every 2-5 years depending on the specification of coolant used.

    Thank you!
    Only got the bike.
    Coolant was changed in 2022 I think.
    Plan on changing it when weather gets warmer :001:

    My mk2 fan cuts in when you are sitting in traffic during the summer or on a long ride.I have the coolant changed every 2years when it has its MOT and annual service.It's a normal thing as Art says,it's a big ol lump to keep cool.

    Excellent coolant replacement How to right here

    The first time I replace coolant in any system I drain and flush the system two or three times with de-ionised water to get most of the old stale coolant out. For the final refill my coolant of choice is a 50:50 mix of TRIPLE QX red anti-freeze & summer concentrated coolant (Euro car parts 2L required). That way future coolant changes can be made using the same TRIPLE QX red coolant with less need for flushing.

    Thanks again.
    I have used Prestone straight out of can.
    It is silicate free and long life.
