I have a 88 hurricane 600 and when in traffic it starts to heat up. I checked the fan and it is not going on, so I checked the fuse and it was fine. I did a search on this and saw something about the voltage regulator but the thread never told how to check this. All the other electronics work fine on the bike. I really want to go on some long rides but am scared too in case i get stuck anywhere and it overheats.
