For those of you having engine temp problems you may look at your thermostat. This is what happened to mine. Cooked both cylinders and pistons as well. Found out they have a new part number on the thermostat. I will see what the new one looks like. Obviously the thermostat was trying to open but could not as it was hitting the crankcase inside the thermostat housing. Just started having issues with temps this year.

I believe you can just pull the clutch to change it out. There is one bolt on the upper corner of the housing that is hard to access. With the TCL off you have full access. The new thermostat is only $13.99 from Country Cat.
