Road test done.
After replacing the thermostat and fixing the fan relay (hot-wired a switch until I can get a replacement relay, cause "this place is two weeks from everywhere") I took a 30 minute 25 mile ride. Some highway speeds, some stop lights etc. It never went over 3 bars and went down to 2 bars while moving. I only turned the fan on once while waiting at a stop sign and it was only at 3 bars. Never went higher and I stayed there extra long on purpose. Pulled away from that stop and turned off the fan. It soon went back down to 2 bars😁
Now... How do I keep it under the legal speed limit. That engine purrs at 70+mph.

I ride bikes cause four wheels are much harder to lean🤪
