    Maintain the cooling system and clean the thermostat housing and internal parts and it should not give you trouble.

    If you have the fuel injected engine then the thermostat is almost mandatory.

    Ae you flushing the cooling system with fresh water after you ride in salt water?

    I would leave it in. Even if it fails:

    -There is a bypass plunger that opens under heavier throttle allowing water to flow.
    -Even if the bypass plunger is not sufficent, You have a display that will alert you to the engine overheating.
