Just a slight thing that is bugging me....my temperature gauge likes to creep up now days...even when driving it gets up to half way...then falls, usually stays between 1/4 and 1/2...I don't know whether that is normal, but my VN never runs that hot...all the time

that something would be the main A/C fan, or backup fan...cools the car when the primary fan doesn't keep it cool enough

All the above are completely normal - that's the way they operate. Normal is that the gauge will sit at 1/4 to 2/3 when warmed up....stop at the lights and temp may creep up to 3/4 when the high speed fan kicks in OR at any time when you turn the aircon on (cool only) the low speed fan turns on. This is with the VS which has a 2 speed cooling fan but VR is similar but with single speed fan.
Good Luck.
