S3 RXT-X WOT running temp
When running WOT what is your engine temperature.

I am running at 210, but as soon as I slow a little the temp drops right down. I have installed the 131 Rorschach thermos. Any ideas why I am running so hot?

I'd say you either have a blockage or thermostat is not opening fully

Brand new rotax 131 thermo. System flushed after install.

If the stat fails to open fully the pump will pull from the "hot" side of the housing. That "washer" on the back (or bottom) of the stat is there to block off the cavity in the housing when it opens.

Sorry to drift I assume oil levels good and closed loop cooling

When you installed the new thermo, did you "burp" the system? You may have an air pocket somewhere killing coolant flow...
The OEM ride plate can only cool so much at WOT, its not until you slow down to about 30-35 when its most efficient...
