Nd4spdbh good job on lovin ya old girl.
Where did you get your thermostat from? I'm thinking on replacing mine. It's 15 yrs old and sat in a non running bike for 10 of those years. My bikes running temp just sits on top of the C mark (dash gauge). Maybe will do what Mike and others did and run a hotter thermostat? Maybe test mine also.
I agree with you in regards to 919s engine reliability. Honda small engines are incredibly reliable. Especially in regards to cold starts after sitting for extended periods. I've seen honda 5hp engines on fishing boats, running pumps, generators etc that shouldn't really work anymore. 30yrs old, steel covers rusted away, no muffler, bit of rope pull start, electrics hanging out. I reckon I'll still be riding my 919 after an apocalypse and it will look just like one of those fishing boat honda's. Minus the rope pull start.
