Engine Operating Temperature???
Ok, about 3 hours are on my ski since the bearings went in my supercharger. they didnt grenade, but I could hear a noise in my intake so I pulled it off and the shaft in the charger was moving up and down. I didnt notice any other damage and the charger was replaced under warranty. Since I installed the new warranty charger my engine has been running warmer. Before the charger went I was always sitting at 188/189, no I am at 195/197.
Is there any logical reason for something like this?
This is on my RXTX 260 mods in sig
Thanks, I hope there is someone that can help me with this

My engine is always around 192.2 at idle and rise to 199.4 when riding hard.
Ambient temp is 86 and water 77 or so.

The thermostat regulates the temps.......its a 195* stat. Your temps are normal. I use a Riva 160* stat and per the temp gauge runs 150-160*. The oil temp runs at about 190*, and as high as 210-220* when running WOT!
Sounds like the OP lost a bearing in the S/Cer......were the 2 oil pumps and oil cooler flushed?

So no I never needed to clean out the oil pumps.

It appears that I am still well within reason though and even running cooler then some skiis out there. Great to know!
