My rad cap popped off after flooring VRSCDX (2016 model). it appears that I haven't blown a head gasket as bike is running ok / coolant level normal again - no losses

I cannot get the fans to come on and engine does appear hot - is there a way to test run them? I proved the relay is ok.

Also is there an asy way of proving the water pump is working? just keen to check things over & understand why the cap popped.


Fans themselves can be tested indiviually by unplugging them with any 12v source with a direct +/- connection to the wires. The cap likely popped off from a poor mechanical connection to the fill spout. Look it over closely to see how the tabs are hooking in.
