Now, when the temperature of the oil breaches the 220 degree Fahrenheit mark, the fans will activate to blow air through it.
The fans will continue to blow air until the oil temperature is lowered to 190 degrees. The oil cooler will continue to work whether your motorcycle is moving or not, ensuring that the oil maintains a stable temperature. It does not add unnecessary noise as well. The fans of the oil cooler are
