Reliability?

So here lately I have been having a few issues I'm on my 4th coolant temp sensor and and had a throttle linkage issue just wondering is there a better replacement thermal switch for these bikes

Based on the other posts you have made, it seems like you are confused about the Coolant temp sensor and thermo-switch as you are using the terms as if they were the same.

Coolant temp sensor - located on head. Supplies information to the ECU for fuel mapping purposes and also supplies a reading to the dashboard for the coolant temp gauge (one sensor, two separate functions/circuits)

Thermo-switch - Located on the radiator. Supplies a signal to the fan relay (thats all, nothing to do with the temp gauge on the dash)
