I have an 05 1K race bike that I bought 1yr ago. It has run good since I bought it but has always run a little hot while on the track and when I come off the track it starts to get hotter. On the track it runs about 210 and then when I am off it always get to about 240-250. I always have put coolant in it and when I get done it dumps the coolant out when I get off the track.

I finally decided to pull the thermostat out and see if it was bad or stuck and when I pulled the cover off there was NO thermostat!

Would there be any good reason that someone would take the thermostat out on a race bike?

Please help..

Thanks

Maybe a blown head? Someone once told me that by taking off the thermostat the coolant flows so quickly thru the radiator it doesn't have time to sit and cool down. Idk if thats true sounds about right tho
