Yes, it turns on a bit earlier than the stock switch. But like others have said, it NEVER TURNS OFF. To be precise, it turns off when the engine has cooled down to about hand-warm, one line on the dash. Means when you’re riding, your fan is always on, constantly. I used to have a switch made by Trailtech on another 690 and that one worked perfectly. But this one here is garbage. Took it out after one ride and put the stock switch back in.
