i was looking at samco hoses for the thermo delete, but can't seem to find it anywhere.

skooool me!

yes i searched, but there didn't seem to be any consensus.
Here is my improvised version, short piece of hose on the little elbow, and a bolt with two hose clamps to block. Have about 25+ hours on it and it never leaked or made any other problems, probably not enough pressure in the system.

Don't know if it cools any better, but if you ride in cold weather sometimes I would keep the thermostat.
