    Proper rxp Exhaust temp, need advice 05 rxp

    What is the proper exhaust temp for 2005 rxp? Suggestions pls

    I was running 91 and 95 today, The jetski was running ok but not great as I'm acostume, i notice the difference getting out of the hole.

    Most of the time today was working arround 91, in the afternoon it droped to 86-89 wich was the same as my friend rxp. I check the coolant and was in the middle. When the temp drop to 86 then the rxp was really alive. What can be causing the hight temp. There is no code or missfire.

    What should I check first? Not long ago the exchange heater hose clamp broke and I lost all coolant, I put antefreeze green coolant on it. after that i did'nt check the exhaust temp until today.

    Sugestions????

    In your manual the "E" temp is the outside air or EARTH temp
    and "L" temp would be your LAKE or the water u are driving in temp, Not exhaust temps.

    All is normal

    Hi, My 2007 rxt just went throu a hose clamp. Replaced clamp and coolant. Used straight antifreeze not 50/50. The temp on coolant tank is too hot for my hand to touch. Is there a temp difference with the 50/50. I thought the straight would be better.

    Yes you need to add water. Straight coolant has a lower specific heat and is less viscous than water so the cooling will not be as effective. Make sure you get approx a 50/50 mixture
