I'm having some trouble with my bike overheating. I was wondering if\njust pulling the thermostat is a totaly bad thing. I know it's\nprobably necessary if running in cold wether but I don't run unless\nit's warm out. So you know I've checked the obvious such as spark\nplug gap (gapped to what clymer spcified but that manual seems to give\ninacurate info on occasion) and fan but have yet to check the temp\nsensor and have not actually pulled the thermostat. One more thing\nthe temp guage seems to fluctuate what seems to be abnormally but\nmostly gets really close to the redline at idle after running a\nwhile. By the way thanks all of you for answering my previous posts.
