Question about 2001 Suzuki GSX-R 1000
It could be a sticky thermostat, you could try removing the thermostat completely and see if this clarifies the problem, there might also be a sender unit that is giving an inaccurate reading. Are you sure head gasket is not blown? Do a compression test, smell the coolant , does it smell like petrol, is the engine oil milky! Make sure the radiator is running freely and has no blockages, also check if you can obtain a thermostat that will switch at a lower temperature threshold, sometimes the manufacturer produce these for countries with hot ambient air temperatures.
