High Temperature Reading

so i am riding to work today on my 05 F4 1000....it is a cloudy day with temps. in the late 60's to early 70's. I am sitting at a traffic light and notice the temp reading flashing.....then 250, 260, 268, 270...and I am getting worried....i look at the tank in front of the airbox and notice the appropriate level of fluid....the light turns green and I get the bike up to speed to produce airflow...the rest of the way to work the temp does not go below 205...which is bad....i pull into the parking lot and hit the kill switch...light in my head goes off when i hear NO FAN running.....i imagine there is a fuse i will need to check along with the connector? Any other ideas? I only have 3k on the odometer

I would say if the fuse is okay then
fan motor might be bad or
a bad relay or
a temp sensor that brings on the motor is bad
wiring might be loose or not conducting in some way
my .02 cents

the fuse is in position 1. it's on a fuse pod, which is on the right side of the bike. take off the right side mid, and you'll see a small black box which has two spring loaded levers on each side. that's the fuse box.

when you get the cover off, and flip it over, you'll see a diagram showing what each fuse is for and it's value

the fan fuse is 15A.

Yes, it's right below the tank. i.e. you don't have to remove the tank.

ended up a blown fuse.....i'm curious as to why and i hope this is not an indication of a malfunction somewhere in the system. Fuses should not blow unless there is a problem so I will monitor this....going out to get some Engine Ice since I have the panels off. Thanks again everyone

Yeh i'm going to try Engine ICE too.

Today after a squirt up our local twisty road, I sat it on the side of the road idling and the temp went up to 101 Deg C (ambient 23 Deg C) and stayed there... that was great.
A few weeks back it didnt seem to stop rising a traffice lights (at night, and i think it was colder then) strange.

Ok in traffic today it rose to 112 Deg C (Where it blinks) so I shot up a side street to stretch its legs.
I am going to first try Engine Ice and see how it goes, after that will try removing the cat-converter, after that more/bigger fans.

Regards
Jonathan
