    Check your fuses they are usually under the seat, might be a sensor,

    I had my radiator cap come loose recently which allowed my fluid to boil over and out. Make sure your cap is on tight and there is in fact fluid in the radiator. Good luck.

    Looks like the fan is out but could be other issues. Fluids look good. Radiator looks good. Probably an easy fix for some but not an mechanical idiot like me. Internet makes it look easy. Tear into it and it doesn’t quite look so easy.
    Runs fine unless ran a long time. Thanks for all the advice.

    This is how you learn to fix things, you just pay attention maybe take pics and take your time..

    That and you got to really want to fix it yourself. I’ll be the first to admit at the end of a workday mechanical work is the last thing I want to do. Yard work, landscaping...anytime.

    Get a volt meter and unplug the wiring connector at the fan and check for current after it's hot. You can also use the same connector and direct wire the fan from a 12v battery to see if it works.

    Correction. My fan did kick on yesterday. Didn’t ride as much as before but still never said hot. Maybe the darn thing was just dirty and something clogged up that day? Oh, well, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it...yet.
