Does anyone know of an alternative thermostat for the new shape KLR?
I am not going the thermo-bob route.
Just looking for a more reasonably priced thermostat than Kawasaki SA’s pricing.
Keen to meet and ride.

if its the one in the radiator the 2008+ klr uses one that can be replaced with a Hella FS8110 @ R220 or the echlin FS2037 @ R150 . They are both M18x1.5 with temp range of 93/88 deg celcius get them from midas or autozone
When i am good , i am good but when i am bad i am even better

That is the fan switch.

This is what a thermostat looks like. It regulates the coolant flow.

What is the problem? Is it not opening or just leaking around the housing?
I like to drink lots of beer??

My bike does not come up to temperature, so I suspect tne tnermostat is broken or stuck open, circulating coolant when the engine is cold. Its not my temlerature gauge, before everyone tries to tell me that.

I should still have one lying around here, you are welcome to try and see if it works
better than your current one.
