    My CX650C has an electric fan, and when it comes on, you can feel the heat on your legs.

    Search the forum, search the Wiki.
    Its rare that an original problem develops in a 30 year old machine.

    Your question has probably already been answered.

    When I had my first GoldWing I was in a club that occasionally participated in long, slow group rides. I read an article somewhere about installing a "parade switch" to turn the fan on all the time so that it wasn't continuously cycling in those situations and it recommended adding a light so that you would notice if you had left the switch on when it wasn't needed. So I used an LED. The next time I was out after dark I noticed that the light glowed dimly once I reached a certain speed (about 60 Km/h IIRC). I figured that the air moving through the rad was spinning the fan and its motor was acting as a generator...
