Open loop question
I have been riding few hours with the open loop kit with thermo now..
But im still not sure if the oilcooler gets the water it needs.. I have heard that the hose on the top of the J-pipe dont have so much water pressure... Do you use the same? to get the water flow to the oilcooler?.. I think that is the hose which is coming from the flush connector on a stock ski
I have done some mods to the open loop kit.. I have a T coupler on the hose betveen pump/engine. from the T a have seperate 1/2" hose to the intercooler.. and this is going straight out by a 8mm fitting
and i have drilled upp the washer to 10mm..
But the engine feels real warm after 30minutes riding.. I dont remember if the engine was so warm even with the closed loop cooling
the water temperature here in Sweden is round 65 F

Oh sorry... its a Riva Kit..
The reason was from the begginging that the RR intercooler have not the same size (3/4") its only 1/2 on the water connectors.. then i didnīt want have the extremly high pressure thru the intercooler..
Have you modded your J-pipe (this 3 small holes for water out to the waterbox)

Im sure the IC will be fine with the high pressure.
If you look under the J pipe between the mani and the J you will see a water feed for the J
T'd off of that is a small 8mm line that normally goes to the end of the exhaust, this is the line that feeds my oil cooler.
Even iff you had drilled out the 3 holes it would not effect the water thru the oil cooler. R88

Bar the flush parts and the thru hull I followed the riva instructions which include the oil cooler lines.

With the riva thermo no cooler oil temp is 215 at 8550 rpm with 10/60 oil

thats why i drilled up the washer to 10mm.. to get some more waterflow..
but do the both water & oil temp have a alarm if the temperature is to high?
