I think you are right on here. I have always felt that it is strange that the bike temp will run up to 220f when sitting in traffic and then back down to 168 when moving. That sounds like a thermostat problem to me and in car world it is. Everyone says these bikes don't work that way. I would like to mess around with thermostats first and see what happens.
Full disclosure: I have only had one extremely high temp occurance, so it is not a huge issue for me.
