    thermo switch questions

    hey guys got a question. as far as i know the thermostats are useless on pro785 correct? because i accidently severed the wire that goes to the thermo switch ( part # 3240223) that comes out of the side of the head. the wire broke off to close to the switch and i cant reattach it. do i need this or will i go into limp mode for it not reading temp?

    you really don't need it ,if it goes into limp mode just disconnect the grey wire in the elect box

    It is an on-off temperature sensor.

    Too hot = switch on, and the grounded Tan signal wire tells the MFI display to show the HOT warning.
    It can also trigger the limp mode RPM limiter in the CDI.

    Securely tape/insulate that loose wire end, so it doesn't touch anything metal.
