    Thermo for cold water?

    What kind of water temps would you guys be concerned about using a Thermo, or atleast a restrictor?

    Just wondering if i should bother putting something in there for my first few rides.

    Water Temp around 45 F I believe.

    Most of my stuff seems to run less than 160 and that's with no thermostat but I do use restictors where necessary.
    When I squeak my stuff down I see temps raise as high as 20 degrees.
    I'll have to check the temps when I'm ripping around.
    I was always told a good rule of thumb was you should be able to hold your hand on the cylinders while idling in the water.
