Thermostat too much for me.
What was I thinking? Oh it’s easy, they said. Just loosen up on this to get to it, they said!
I’ve been turning wrenches since I was five years old mostly on air cooled engines, VWs and Porches and motorcycles but this thermostat on my SV1000s broke me! It’s suspended from the cylinder heads by radiator tubing so when I applied pressure to my 10mm wrench the whole thing just twists and I can’t get a good “bite” on the two bolts I want to remove so I may replace the thermostat! I considered removing all the tubing but then the question becomes, “How do I replace the tubing, assuming I can remove the thermostat housing?”
So, I’ve got the parts on order. My radiator should arrive today after sending it to Myler’s for refurbishment, so I’m gonna install the radiator, add new coolant and schedule the shop to replace the thermostat. Problem solved!
