Check Engine light and performance issues Rxp Stage 3
Hello, and thanks for the advice on my last post! If any of this is a repeat and has been answered, please just post the link for me..
Anyway, i bought a used 04 Rxp stage 3 (i believe) and have a few issues.
When ridding randomly the red light flashes and the check engine appears on the screen, this can happen 10 seconds after a cold start, or 20 minutes into a cruze and stays on for a few seconds to a few minutes. The dealer says not to worry and that they cant plug it into the computer to check the codes because i have a Rotax racing Ecu. I dont believe them, that everything is fine and want your advice. I have tried the trick to get the code, but all it displays is the SeaDoo text.
Please tell me if something is wrong because of performance i am getting here. I just installed a new fizzle style intercooler, and groco filter, everything is clean and right from what i can see. My ski has the Ecu in the picture, a gen two supercharger wheel (Jerry just serviced it for me), riva front intake, and worx sponsoons,straight through exhaust with moded stock can, oil level right, the injectors are they are Delphi 50 lb./hr. I dont know about the jet parts, there is a picture of the grate if someone can tell me what it is..
Here is what i got from the GPS:
68.1mph on a flat lake, and 8150Rpm, 2 mph headwind, full fuel, 460 lbs me and my wife, and 30 lbs cargo in front. Does that sound right?
Also i thought with this Ecu you needed, injectors, fuel pump and regulator, but from what i can see the fuel pump is stock and no external regulator.
I also want to make sure i have the cooler thermostat, is there any way to tell, appart from taking it appart?
There is a metal ring in place of the carbon seal, with a zerk fitting looks like a RAD4, which i start the engine and pump grease into until is comes out around the shaft in the ski, i am using the pink flamingo grease(well...it is florida, and thats what was recommended locally..) am i doing the right thing?Maybe i need a special grease?
Finally i have a left over Rotax Racing Intercooler, pressure tested to 35psi and fine, can you tell me what a fair price is to sell it for?

You should find out what injectors you have and the rev limit of that ecu. Its gonna be 8600 or 8800 and your only turning 8150. Thats some of your problem. What prop are you running with that

if you hit the set button 5 times it should give a code on why the red light is on.

I also dont know what prop it has on right now...
And the Ecu rev limit i dont know, thats why i posted a pic of the stickers on it so someone can tell me what it is...
I had a feeling is should be revving higher, but cant find whats stopping from so...

Quit riding it until you can learn what you have. Nothing but bad can come from it. Could be a simple problem but you need to get to know that ski from top to bottom.

You need to talk to Malte @ mrracing about that ecu, he will tell you what is is mapped for.
Take a look at your injectores there should be a number on them to indifying them.

Rpm issue could be if you have the knock sensor piggy back adapter installed. It should not with that ECU.
Also Prop size, and SC slip can cause the low RPM issues. You should be at 8450 (at least) with that ECU, which hopefully they already installed up graded valves, and lightened retainers before you have valve issues.

Ok guys i found out what the injectors are they are Delphi 50 lb./hr.. Is there supposed to be an upgraded fuel pump on this ski? I havent taken appart the fuel pump, but it looks stock on the outside...
