if exhaust gas temp too high you will probably hole a piston or sieze it up if you keep riding.

Alternatively if the temperature suddenly drops that can be an indication that the head is retaining the heat and you may hold a piston........which is what happened on my Rapido

No juggling, just one rule: establish safe working temp, keep it below that or risk failure
