I realize that...well more like 30mph. But the original post was questioning if the bike was really getting hot or it was a gauge issue. If the fan runs normally at lower speeds but isn't on when 'pegging the needle' in OD, I might wonder if the problem was the gauge, sending unit or related wiring.

I see your point but no way will he be able to hear the fan at that speed, 1100 fans barely make enough noise when stopped to hear it.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Put in a new Stant thermostat, also has a one year old stant radiator cap, to answer a few questions. And here is the story of what has happened so far.
Well, checked temps and stuff as suggested and everything seemed pretty close to normal seemed to be a gauge issue. I had around 75 miles on the replacement engine and since things looked good took the bike for a trip from VV to SD about 300 miles round trip. Engine ran great got to SD parked bike and next morning about a quarter since oil spot on the ground, not good but nothing to serious, I thought. As I went up the pass to VV the engine started to howl got to VV stopped for dinner and had a steady leak out of the weep hole about a sliver dollars worth before we could walk away from the bike. Had a nice dinner, drove the bike home the last few miles and the howl got worse and an nasty puddle under the weep hole after parking the bike at the house. So the next step is to Replace what sure appears to be a BAD water pump. Will update after replacement of the pump. By the way what is the trick to getting the o"rings on the pump to go in. When I did it on the old engine it was a real bear to get the pump fitted back in with the the o"rings on it.
Thanks for putting up with the story.

Installing with dry o-rings seldom works. A little oil. grease or any other slippery substance makes installation easy and helps to prevent cutting the rings when installing.

Here's the update, the old water pump was wobbling so bad it was rubbing against the case good thing it was a fiber pump not a metal one. Also checked the thermostat I had it installed upside down. Used lot's of vasline on the o'rings put the pump in the freezer for about 4 hours and the pump slide in the case with a nice solid click with a good push. No leaks or drips in the driveway to late and cold to test drive tonight. Will give her a quick run in the morning before work.
Thanks for all the help

It was to cold to find out if I had an overheating problem absolutely not to cold to drive, have to have snow on the ground before it is to cold.
