    GP1200R Exhaust Overheat Warning

    2002 model, 80 hours on the clock. Just out for first ride of the year and warning symbol and alarm sounding when running mid-speed under load with 2 people. Stop, check engine bay for signs of excessive heat from muffler and restarts no problem. Seems OK running flat out with 1 person. Pissers seem to be running and checked hoses and flushed through. Owned same 'ski since 0hrs and never had any reliability issues from overheating. Always flushed through with clean water only after every ride. Anything specific to check or clean?

    If the cooling hose are in good working order your Cat/con could have come apart and jammed up your exhaust. Its very common on these ski's. You would need to order a D-plate in place of the cat/con

    I had the exact same problem with my 2001 this year. Ordered a d-plate and temp sensor. Replaced the cat/con with it and no problem afterwards.

    Great thanks for the quick response. Makes sense. I'll get a D-Plate. Let you know when it's sorted. Cheers.

    the catylitic converter. Its inside the stinger. they are known for coming apart after some time. People replace them with D plates made by r&d or riva

    Thanks and photo of CAT & D-plate

    Thanks for your help everyone. Here's the photo's to prove it.
    Replaced with Riva D-Plate and chipped the temperature sensor wire harness connector as recommended by Riva so sensor is now redundant- i guess that's OK now the Cat.Con's gone. Test run and all's good except the Gas price in UK

    I need to do this to my sister-in-law's 2002 GP1200R.

    I am not familiar with her ski specifically, but I know my way around.

    Can anyone post a complete list of parts that would be needed to dump the C/C and install the D-plate?

    Thank you very much!

    I am a true new guy...I think all you need is a 'Dplate' and sensor or a 'Oplate' from jetwerks plus a sensor...The gaskets are stainless steel and are reusable...get some copper spray gasket sealer and blue loctite...look at the cajuns website for a pretty good step by step directions... www.cajundude.com/stingerremoval.htm

    Riva sells a dplate and they have some basic instructions.

    If you haven't gone to premix...now would be a great time to also buy a oil blockoff kit.......
