Incorrect Thermostat Operation

So when I was trying out my HP4 race in the 'physics debug' mode, I noticed the thermostat opening and closing is directly related to the throttle input.

Not sure of ratios etc, but this is incorrect, as the thermostat should be closed, until the bike just hits operating temp, before it opens and remains open to varying degrees to keep the engine at the correct/optimal temp.

Having this correct could change quite a lot in the temp management of engines in GP Bikes.

I have a feeling the entire temperature simulation in GP Bikes could do with altering, but I haven't looked that deep into it.
