Forgot about that...might be an easy sell in TX!
NNNOOOOOO. YOUR WHOLE ENGINE MANAGMENT SYSTEM RELIES ON THAT THERMOSTAT TO COME TO TEMP OF 192-195 F. TO Make the sensors operate with the ECM. IF NOT you may well not go into closed loop and stay in open loop a default mode of start up with no to limited engine control, possibly too much fuel washing cylinders this is true with all gas engines running EEC.In a car probably needed for the heating so it warms up quicker, not so on a bike. Engine runs best when up to temp, or does it? Don't think you will miss it if it ends up in the bin. Can't help thinking the engine men at Suzuki might know a tad more than us and if not required why waste money on it? Bet them electric cars don't have one, lol.
