I don't stock that one, it would be 3-4 days to get one.
I'd recommend running a t-stat long term, just to avoid any possible issues.
But if you can't find one and you need to get back together than gut yours.
You need to have some flow restriction to allow the water to stay in the radiator long enough to cool.
You can also try O'Reillys to match it.
Glad you got it figured.

Not sure oreillys will have one? I could be wrong though. I plan to wait till tuesday and go up to Team Mancuso Powersports Southwest to buy my radiator fluid and hope to they have my thermostat, otherwise Ill check out oreillys, and worse comes to worse Ill try and priority ship one from RonAyers.

That is unless you can get one Patrick depending on the price of the thermostat...
