Here's something to try at your own risk.
If it is the same as on the 85, you can short the magnetic fan clutch switch with a wire so the engine fan stays on all the time.
I am not sure if it can be called a recommended procedure, as I am not a mechanic, but I did that on mine and now it runs nice and cool around 80-90 degrees even in the hottest weather, and it gets hot here in HI. To my knowledge, the electric fans should kick on at 100 degrees C, if not there's probably something wrong.
Good Luck!
