Default 90 cbr1000f, thermostat, temp sensor, install


Today. Decided to install a new thermostat. I ordered that generic one, as a option . On this forum.

I did notice it was smaller diaphram then the one I removed. I do have some concerns, but intial short run bike ride, showed no issues.

8mm wrench used for the Tworld screws.

I didn't get a picture of the new one or location picture.

I used a 7/8 th American wrench.

I don't believe the old one was bad, but for under $8, off of ebay. I thought it was worth replacing. Certainly looks ruff. Compared to the new one.

Do any of you think the opening on the newer generic $6 thermostat will prove to be a issue?

That was as I mentioned the one, posted for part replacement tips. I didn't save the box. Or I would show the picture
