Thread: 131 Thermostat

  1. #1

    131 Thermostat

    Looking for the part # for a 131/ 130 thermostat to replace the stock thermostat out of a stock housing. I know the 160 thermostat # but was wondering about a 131/130 thermostat.

    Thanks

    Riva makes a kit to where you can convert your stock thermostat over to 131

    stick with the 160 for a normal ski. No reason to run anything lower. If you're that concerned about heat drill some holes and buy some frogzskin

    The Rotax 131 is a 160* temp T-Stat.

    Just because the thermostat is rated at 131 degrees doesn't mean the engine runs that cool.
    With the 131 the engine temps run around 165 degrees.

    With the stock, or "160" thermo engine temps hover in the 190's.

    A cooler thermostat is a must on any modified Seadoo. Both the Riva and Rotax Racing thermostats in the forums store are 131 degree.

    Rotax racing made 2 different thermostats 131f and 160f, OEM sea doo stock is 188f.

    You ride in some nice cool water too

    Water temps here in the swamp or in tropical areas get to be 95 degrees in summer months

    I have had the 131 for over 2 years and in Texas and Arkansas lakes my temps stay 157-168 consistent. Long WOT runs tops off around 175 then drops nicely. I like it a lot!!!
