    Question Fzr heat loss?

    2014 FZR SVHO
    Power Filter
    Ribbon Delete
    Speed Control Override Module
    Stage 1 Engine Cooling Upgrade Kit
    Thru hull Exhaust
    Engine Breather filter
    Blow-off valve
    Solas 13/20 prop
    Water Line S
    trainer.
    Not doing a reflash for warranty issues!
    76mph

    I am about to send my ride plate and my prop for some Jim Magic.

    while ocean riding full throttle I notice my rpm dropping from 7400 to like 7200 to sometimes 7000. as per the oem cluster, now that was after riding for about 4 hrs. and having it at wot for about 7 full minutes at a time .

    1. Is that indication of heat loss?
    2. Would the riva stage 2 cooling kit with the Type 14 IC help?
    3. Would I get any performance out of a Riva waterbox.

    Wide open throttle for 7 minutes at a time? Riding for 4 hours? Yep, I'd say it's REALLY safe to say your intercooler is heat soaked along with the engine. That's where your RPM loss is coming from. Yes, I'd say the Type 14 and a Riva stage 2 cooling kit would be a big improvement to your set up if you plan on riding wide open throttle for 7 minutes at a time. (which I really don't suggest doing) Engines, no mater what vehicle, don't like to be wide open throttle for long periods of time like that.

    to be honest we were wot for more cause will let go of the throttle for about 1 minute and go at it again for another 5 to 7 minutes and it lasted about 2 hrs, the total ride was about 5 hrs on the jet ski time.

    How can you ride like that!?
    There's no way my fuel would last that long, nor my arms. Haha
