Thermostat/coolant temperature sensor location

Post by j.maclean » Thu Aug 19, 2010 9:21 am

Hey everyone. I have a 84 Aspencade GL1200 and I am going to change out my thermostat and do a coolant flush this evening. I was wondering if there are any how to articles on how to change the thermostat and if not could anyone tell me where to find it and what has to come off the bike to access it (false tank, lower fairing pieces etc..) also for the coolant temperature sensor. Thanks for any information any of you can provide.

If you take a look at this "How To" ... 54&start=0 on this website Wingadmin pretty much shows you the location of the thermostat and how to go about flushing the system. He als0 has one on replacing the hoses. As far as the sensors they are located on top of the engine just behind the front shield. With the lowers off you can see them.
