I dont know the type of bike or fan you have but....
I found this at another site might help
you should get a service manual for your bike also
220f sounds about right


Fan Switch
Cooling Fan Cut-In Temperature: approx. 105oC
Cooling Fan Cut-Out Temperature: approx 100oC


220f=105c
use 50/50 water and antifreeze



Coolant Type
50% distilled water, 50% corrosion inhibited ethylene glycol anti-freeze.

The overheating problem may be due to one or more of the following:
a defective thermo-sensor,
defective thermostat,
defective fan switch or motor,
defective electrical conductor wiring or connector,
air in the cooling system,
improper coolant mixture ratio,
low coolant, or other.

Anytime the cooling system is opened to air, air enters the system. The system is designed to be air free. Air lowers the boiling point of coolant to a temperature close to the boiling point of water.

An air purging tool is needed when servicing the cooling system
