You're right, last weekend fan was running a lot (and summer is still a long way ahead), so I got a BMW switch 95/90C, made by Facet Italy, $11.

I've just installed the KTM fan kit on my 390, but with a 87/82C switch, it was recommended by a local KTM racer. Best would be to measure oil temps, as we do on the XRs.

XRsOnly oil temperature dipstick

All of you who worry about oil level, get an XRsOnly oil temperature dipstick. It shows unrealistically low temps when the oil level is too low.
