Or check with lordco auto parts they might have something that would work

Pulling the guts out won’t work it will run to cold been there done that
All you need to do is take a drill and drill one or two 1/8th holes into the thermostat plate.
The other thing you can do is push on the plate compressing the spring and bend the lip of the plate in a couple of places so it bypasses some. You actually don't need much.

We rode clemina today. Had a group of 8. We started in lakeview, snow was the best for the day in this area with approximately 6" - 8" of new snow not as many tracks in this area expiallyat the wall area. Then to hillclimb and baurs area both both with a bit less snow. Bluebird all day. Then decided to head in to danger basin, on the way goat ridge was like a superstore parking lot. Not much left there. Danger was pretty tracked as well. Still had a great day The Polaris seat bolt was lost they had to magiver it.

Rode Sunday at Chappel wasn't too many up there Saturday or Sunday, but many tracks in popular areas. Trail is groomed well except for the last few km, seems like the groomer doesn't groom the last 2-3 km. We found a few minimal tracked areas to play in with 6-10" of fresh. Very sunny bluebird day. Watched the heli skiers for a bit as well. The last jump didnt work well. He ended up hitting the bars into the mouth and leaking for a bit. But was ok. Overall good day, with a great group.

Has anyone been back in Allen recently. Headed up tomorrow for the weekend just wondering how the snow is.
EVERYTHING is very spring like right now. The clouds are coming in and there is some snow in the forecast so fingers crossed for some significant amounts.
