My 97 goldwing seems to be overheating when at stop lights. The temp gauge usually runs about 1/3 of the way up, but when I get to a stop light it will rapidly climb to about 2/3 before the fans kick on. The temp stays there until I start moving again. Is this a concern? :?

The highest my 94 gets is just under 1/2 way before the fans kick in, but riding it is 1/4 to 1/3, I would have to be stationary for quite a while before any rise in temp. so I rarely hear the fans kick in,



And climate will have an effect also.

Hi Rodg, this issue has been covered in the past(do a search as I can not remember exactly what the link is). Providing you do not actually have a fault(only correct testing will prove this), then some 1500 temp gauges give an incorrect reading when in traffic. My old 1989 gave a high reading when stationary after a short time,then the fans kicked in but it was not until I was riding that the temp gauge reduced it's reading. I carried out a temp test and found it was running at the right temp even though the gauge said otherwise. On threads I read on the subject others reported the same. i ope this helps?

I believe the fans are kicking on at about the right temp. Just a thought, but have you checked the water in the reservoir?

Thanks for the help wingers, just was worried the fans were cutting in to late. I will check the water level - who knows? :? I will let you know if I find anything.
