i understand you're changing the thermostat.


if you have reason to believe that the engine coolant temperature sensor is not working properly, then replace it. but if your dash reads temperature normally then there's no reason to change it.

Since it's under the thermostat housing, be sure the temp sensor contacts are clean, and put a dab of dielectric grease on the contacts during assembly to prevent corrosion.
Better yet, do the same for all electrical contacts on the bike.
Age and corrosion are the cause of most electrical problems on the bike, especially in humid or seasonal areas with condensation.

Of course, the human element is the next cause for electrical problems on this and any bike with electrical "modifications" gone wrong.
