Low Temp Thermostat Observation
I am currently installing my Rotax Racing low temp thermostat. When received it in the mail i couldn't tell how this was different than the OEM one since there were no extra marking to indicate that it was different.
I looked at the back of the thermostat(engine side) and saw that it was marked 55 degrees celcius. When i removed the OEM one that one was marked 87 degree celcius. I could see that one would think that there is a 32 degree difference but mistake that for 32 degrees in farenheight. I found an online conversion and figured there is a 57 degree farenhieght diffence.
OEM Thermo 87 celcius= 188.60 Farenhieght
Rotax Thermo 55 celcius= 131 Farenhieght
Difference 57.60 Farenhieght
Advertised temp is 70 celcius= 158 farenheight
I may have mis read the lower temp thermostat and i would double check but it is already bolted in place.
This is all food for though and just my observations that i thought i would share. Maybe some can check Riva's and see if theirs is the same or different. i have no problem with the lower temp. More boost can keep my engine warm.
