S Model Thermostat Failure!

Recommended Posts

I had a small leak around the base of the thermostat mount. I pulled it apart to investigate and found that the thermostat had froze and was completely nonfunctional. Luckily it had failed into the open position so I was still getting flow out of it. I am going to remove it completely and use the E model gasket. I don't live in an area where it gets cold enough to worry about my bike not warming up. Here are some pics of the failure.

Lucky. Usually tstats fail in the closed position.
