    Bill, are you already running an open loop cooling kit?

    If you are, this is the kit you want because it's cold where you are at. This kit contains a thermostat which will keep your engine/oil temps at the proper level regardless of the water temps in your riding area.

    When i had discussions with Riva while they were developing this kit they made mention of offering the thermostat parts separately to accommodate those that are already running other brand open loop cooling kits. I'll see if i can get an update on this tomorrow.

    Another benefit to running open loop cooling is you will be able to install the Riva ride plate which will make your ski faster.

    IMO

    IMO running this routing on a 215 will lead to insufficient oil temp for long term reliability. There is no control of the oil temp which is the topic of the other thread and will lead to premature wear and ring failure.
    The water is sorted perfect with this but the oil still only gets water preheated by the log manifold and j pipe but with no control. Get on the ski in the cooler months and you oil better be better than the BRP mineral.

    Just my opinion but open to everyones comments.
