On a '98, I would fix it right. I have an '85, which I have bypassed the temp sensor, and connected it direct, with a switch. I turn it on as soon as the bike starts, and do not shut it off until after I have shut off the engine. But then this is an old bike, I live in AZ, where it gets HOT, plus I am trying to use up as much electrical power as possible to help cool the regulator. On a '98, I'd want things right.

Your fan switch is stuck on Paul. You should really replace it. The switch is easy to get to, it is on the bottom of the left radiator.

had the same problem with my 90 model . it kept blowing fuses. pulled both fans and found that the grease on the axels had hardened stiff . cleaned them up , sprayed them with crc and they worked like a charm . easy and cheap fix.

It sounds like a previous owner has bypassed the fan switch if the fan is still running.
