Depends upon the temp...as you are probably aware. I would check the fan relay to see if it is blown then run 12VDC direct to the fan to see if it works. The thermostat is the control device so be sure that it is OK as you say.

How do you know that ?
What about the pressure cap ?
There could be an air bubble in the radiator loop or low coolant level.
Is it safe to assume that you check the actual radiator and not just the overflow bottle ??

On some bikes, the fan seldom comes on at all; on others it runs off and on pretty much all summer.
If the temp light is coming on but the fan is NOT, then it's very likely that you have a fan problem

Might want to try again.
