My motor is modified beyond what the stock rear fender thermostat can handle. In addition, it failed on the way back from a fast mountain drive so I decided to replace it. Here are two pics of the modification and replacement. The volume of oil that can move through this t-stat is probably 2 to 3 times greater than the OEM piece.

Removal and replacement of the engine oil cooler is easy, but modifying the engine shroud takes some time. The shroud ducting that used to go to the oil cooler needs to be blocked off so all the air goes to the cylinders.
