+1 on a higher temp thermostat. It is counter-intuitive, but really, a hotter tstat makes for a cooler motor.

Doubted, tested, then proven correct on a Honda XR650R hot blooded waterpumping beast. The theory behind it is, it allows more dissipation due to a higher temperature differential in the radiator. It really works. Eliminating the tstat actually made the motor run hotter... less dwell time and temperature differential.

So does Redline Water Wetter. Eliminates bubbles and increases surface contact for heat transfer.
