Removing the coolant with the hot engine (about 80 degrees Celsius) may harm the engine or the gaskets? (like the head cylinder gaskets, bottom cilinder gaskets).
The liquid is no longer cooling anything once your engine is stopped- your coolant is barely moving as the pump isn't moving it.I don't worry about the temperature drop. I worry about the gaskets not to melt without cooling liquid on them.

Thus it's just the metal cooling as it does in the air...
Liquid cooling (as with any cooling on an engine) is there to keep the engine cool, not cool it off. (meaning, maintain a max temperature, not actually reduce the temperature to zero)
Gaskets don't melt at operating temperatures, when you turn the bike off and then drain the coolant right away- the engine isn't getting any hotter, it's cooling off...thus the gaskets (and other components) will be just fine.
So I don't see a problem here... just have it running w/o coolant...
What I was going to post!I don't think removal is a problem, but if he were draining and re-filling right away, dumping cold water in a hot engine can cause problems.
Thanks, my biggest fear was for the gaskets (bottom cylinder gasket, head cylinder gasket) not to melt due to lack of cooling liquid (since it was drained) and the engine was still hot.Not a problem, and someone else pointed it out too- it's not really a stupid question, SVR doesn't work quite like some other forums
Def staying safe :> - You too.
