Over the 4th of July weekend I took a trip to Island Park, ID.  Beautiful area, miles and miles of riding.  In fact one day, we rode over to West Yellowstone from Island Park.  It was a great ride, I suggest adding that trip to your bucket list.

At any rate, on to the reason for the post.  Last summer, I was out at Little Sahara, riding in 100+ heat.  After climbing Sand Mtn, I saw that the overheat light turned on, it quickly turned off after I headed back down.  I came home, did some research of how to help the engine run cooler and swapped the coolant over to engine Ice.  I didn't really pay attention before, but it seems like my fan is always on (Not on when engine is cold, sitting overnight or for several hours).  Even cruising around in 60-70 degree weather, and not hard on the throttle, casual riding at a decent pace (25-40) mph the fan is usually on.

Normal?  Abnormal?

I would say that is normal. My fan runs a decent amount as well, I think it is just the nature of the beast. It almost never comes on in the winter but get into spring and summer it will run more.

Kinda side tracking the thread, but I was just up at Island Park/West Yellowstone a couple weeks ago to see Yellowstone Park, and I saw a bunch of atvs riding around there.   I remember thinking "next time Im here I need to trailer the quads out".
