If you can find a reasonably priced 100*C one let me know. I'm not flush with cash at the moment, in fact things are going to be very tight for the next 18 months, (All part of our retirement plan!) but if you can find a decent product I'll purchase a couple with a view to making up a kit with the spare after I've used my bike as a guinea pig.

I've been thinking about this for some time. I'm looking at this one: CLICKY

Just need to know what AN connectors for the G.  The cheaper units only come with barbed 3/8 connectors. Leaks anyone?

That looks like it'll do the job. If you decide to order grab one for me too, send 'em down here and I'll make up hoses etc. and work out how and where to mount it. It would be nice to hide it inside the cooler housing on the GRiSO. The swap from metric to imperial fittings will be a pain but not insurmountable. I'm sure my local hose blokes will have everything we'll need.

Goodo. Shall I order them without fittings then?

I can't make out whether the couplings that screw into the 'Stat itself are part of the deal or not? Looking at the pictures it would seem that the unit comes as a 'Kit' with the couplings and mount plates, (Which would be good as I'm thinking of bolting the 'Stat to the side of the sump spacer inside the cooler housing.). If it is solely the 'Stat itself then so be it. I'm sure we can get stainless fittings to do the job. The ones they supply look like anodised aluminium which would be nice and light but, well, we are puting them on GRiSO's! Scarcely a Moto GP bike in terms of featherweight lightness! Very Happy

The fittings are an extra $10 per 'stat. You can get -06AN, -08AN, -10AN, or -12AN fittings, which are equivalent to SAE 9/16-18, 3/4-16, 7/8-14 and 1-1/16 -12. The boss thread is -10AN or 3/4-16. If you can get couplings that will screw straight into the 'stat boss thread, then there's no need to order them.
The mount plates are included.

Sounds like just stat then if it comes with mounting plates. Thumbs Up

No worries, you have credit here, the fittings won't be cheap but they shouldn't be very expensive. I think I can get them in blue and red anodised as well so I can bling them up! cheers
