I have a question regarding my motorcycle (Yamaha FZ8 - 4Zylinder 800cc). At the weeksend I was driving through a town. It was very hot outside and I parked the bike. The coolingwater-temperature was above 100°C, the fan of the engine was running.
When I turned of the engine, the fan stopped working, too. So I switched on the ignition again (without starting the engine), and the fan started working again. After a few minutes I turned off the ignition, because the fan was still runing and didn't want to risk to loose all the battery power.
My question is: What is the correct way in such a case? (Hot summer temperatures + hot engine)
- Leave the eninge turned on? Will it cool down, or will the engine produce more heat, than it can cool down? (For some turbo cars, it is best in this case, to let them running, but for motorcycles?)
- Let the vent running(without the engine)? How long does the battery last, if I let the ignition turned on?
- Just stop the engine and don't care if it's hot? (Will it take damage?)
Hope you guys can give me a hint.
