So here is the story. Last week, on the way to work, my temperature gauge started rapidly climbing at a stop light. Once I got moving, it dropped to about half range. But, all the way to work it was having wild fluctuations. I thought the problem would either have to be the thermostat or the impeller. Being the easiest and cheapest thing to start with, I decided to do the thermostat first.
Fast forward to today. I have a new thermostat and orings, and finally have the time to work on it. When I get the tank off, this is what I find. Looks like the connector previously broke on the temperature sensor, and someone did a sloppy job trying to solder it back on. I am going to solder it again to get it working, but also just ordered a replacement sensor.
So here is my poll question. Since I already have the tank off, and already have a new thermostat, should I go ahead and replace the thermostat? The bike was not otherwise acting like it was overheating, so not sure if it is worth the effort.
