    05 gpr .. over heating problem??

    Hello eveyone! I read more than I post but here it goes. I have a stock gpr except for the cat con was removed and a d-plate installed. The ski runs strong (65.0 on gps) and has absolutley no problems. Except for one... I noticed when i ride it for about 15 miles nonstop the exhaust temp warning light comes on. It doesnt matter if its a cruze or a full throttle run. When I shut the motor off and take the key out till the dashbord lights go off and crank it back up i am fine it won't buzz at me again at least not for another 15 miles. i cant see anything clogged or anything either. I am not using the resistor. I bought it and tried it when I first did the install and it buzzed my exhaust temp almost immediately with the resistor. I misplaced it by now and never actually looked at the actual resistance. I read around about people using the 10k but not quite sure if that is my problem. Any advice would be appreciated. .. btw.. gpr's are really thirsty.. i know everyone already knows that, i just didnt now how thirsty until the odometer on the gps confirmed i get about 5-6 miles to the gallon.

    My 2007 GPR did the same thing, but it was the cat sensor, not the water temp sensor. Are you sure its the water temp warning?

    I soldered a 10K resister in mine and its fixed, never saw the warning again.

    You might try just connecting the sensor back up and tie it up out of the way. I did this on my 06 and broke it in this past weekend and I never got an alarm. WFO has told me that some will work this way and some wont. If it doesnt work I will install a resistor.

    mine would set off the alarm right on startup with the chip. i plugged the sensor back in and some days it goes off, some it doesnt. after a long run like you describe it almost always does. lights up the water temp and engine over heat icons. i hit the mute and go on my merry way.
