Just yesterday, I was riding in town, and noticed that my temperature got up to 235 degrees, i was like :scared and kept my bike moving so the temperature will stay below 235, I got home and turned the bike off.

Today, I started up the bike, rode it for ~2 miles, enough to get it up to 210 degrees, then i let it idle. Normally the fan comes on at 216, and brings the temperature down to 210 before turning off, but it didn't come on at 216, didn't come on at 218, so i turned the bike off and let it cool before i rode it home.

Is this a common issue? What should i check first? Fuse box maybe?

Thanks guys, any help is appreciated!

Yep, check fuse box first for blown fan fuse (common).

If the fuse is good jumper your fan switch leads together, fan should kick on. If it does, your fan switch is probably bad and needs replaced (just went through this on my gf's zx6r).

If the fan does not switch on, post back up... We may have a problem.

This may sound dumb as hell but the first step should be to check if the fan rotates freely. One time my fan stopped working and I was checking everything. Turns out a pebble was lodged perfectly between the fan frame and the blades preventing it from turning!:banghead
