Radiator Flush Question

So after I do the CCT I plan on flushing the cooling system. Here's my question: instead of running the bike thru 3 cycles of up to temp, back to fully cooled off....can't I just temporarily remove the thermostat? That way the distilled water I'll be using to flush the radiator will immediately flow through the system. Run the bike for a minute or two, turn off. Drain~blow thru radiator with hose and repeat until it runs clear. Am I missing something that would make this a bad idea??
