Tuning help...Who sells EGT gauges for the GP1300r?
On outboard engines, EGT probes were invaluable in engine life and tuning, but I dont see them talked about much on jetskis...... Does anyone sale a exhaust gas temperature gauge for GP1300r ? Mine is EFI 2005

I'm using the digatron 3 display on my ski. It can handle many inputs and you can download up to 2 hours of info on to your laptop.

Billy - yes. I think Fercho drilled/tapped/welded bosses on the exhaust manifold to be able to install one probe for each cylinder on his single piper a while ago...
Run - Exhaust Gas Technologies also makes stuff for PWCs...I have a Hot Tach III but their website shows some newer stuff:

Which cylinder typically runs the hottest or has most troubles? Front, middle or back?

Seems like reading posts, and mrbtd most have problems with number 3.
Turns out i already had a digital egt with min/max temp recalls already in my OTC multimeter. Tested with a match and it reads higher then 1600 degrees, so I will drill a small pin hole into # 3 exhaust and epoxy the lead into it. Will be very unobtrusive in the exhaust port.
Good thing about this, it can easily go from ski to ski ( i have 3) for only the cost of extra sensors
I just wish I had thought to do this before replacing prop and ride plate. Completely base stock numbers would have been good. If its anything like a racing 2.5 mercurys, going up in pitch a number or 2 decreases exhaust temp. Running a 32 cleaver would drop my pyrometer 175 degrees over a 26 yammi drag prop at part throttle cruising.

i was wondering the same thing. i wondered on how to mount the sensor bung. My stock egt bung isn't long enuff to make it all the way thru the water jacket and into the exhaust jacket. I made a fitting, but am really scared it might leak water into the exhaust jacket, which isn't a good thing. do they sell a longer shank bung?

Is it waterjacketed where it comes out of head? I was going to drill about 1in from mounting flange into manifold. Is that solid in this area or water jacketed?
Glad you bring this up before i pull out my drill
