You really have to speed it up and get serious wind to see it turn off ... I have the coolant slightly above minimum mark in reservoir...
That's just normal...not similar to the op's case....

Defective gauge cluster? Indian involvement with KTM starts to show its teeth?

Hey Deviant666...

The cluster is not manufactured at its Indian partners hub (Bajaj). Theyr'e only making the small cc machines. Infact the Indian counterpart has pumped in lot of cash for KTM to come out with new developments & models which has boosted KTM sales enormously worldwide. They have impacted or I would say dinged BMW sales as well.

Now BMW is following by getting into a joint venture with TVS in India to grab a big share of the pie .
