So went out riding this weekend and while my wife was driving the Rex starts steaming with distinct smell of coolant, WTF, after a tow ho.e I discover the thermostat housing has somehow busted, how it happened I have no clue, guessing it must have been bad cast from factory, I must have a Friday bike, everytime I turn around something is failing on this thing outta the blue and its getting expensive, I wanna get back to spending money on go fast parts dammit.. wondering if for the time being I could bypass thermostat and ride the thing??

If the housing broke then there is no way to bypass that, if the thermostat stuck closed you can gut the center parts out of it and leave just the outer ring of the T.stat. You dont want to run with out one, it controls the speed of the coolant thru the rdiator. Sometimes if you totaly leave them out the engine will run hotter.
