I've never heard of a KLR, in proper repair, overheating. Since your bike is getting on 7 years old you might want to do a proper flush and re-fill to make sure it's in good shape.

If it makes you feel more in control, you can install a switch to turn on the fan at will.

I've run mine in rather tough off road conditions out in the desert with the temps a bit over 100 with no issues. Granted, the fan was on quite a bit, but it stayed around the 210 mark.
