    I am going to assume you ment coolant level.

    Could be the thermo sticking. Did you run in shallow water or beach it?

    Start by flushing it. Where is the coolant level now?

    Don't have GPS. But have seen 75 on seadoo GPS Speedo. Mostly 73 but water temp high 80 low 90 air temp over 100 for over a month. Getting ready to install Work gate and speedfreak intercooler reposition kit. Pro still the one that came with stage kit.

    Ok Thanks! just getting a idea what guys are seeing with the standard Stage 1 from RIVA. The day I posted 76.6(GPS) I hit 78 on the ski. I think the repitch on the impeller is crucial.
