Overheating problem 05 GTX ltd
Yesterday we installed an XS IC and a Thru hull exhaust. Install went well. today while checking the system for leaks using the under seat flush kit i am getting and engine over heat warning not exhaust warning. Does the close loop system needs to be in the water to cool???

The ride plate is like the radiator in your car. To answer your question, yes, the ski needs to be in the water for the cooling system to work as it was designed.
I know i usually don't have any problems when i run my ski out of the water for maybe a minute. Was the weather really warm out. Take the ski down to the lake and see if the same thing happens,

So are you saying that when you put the ski on the hose there is no cooling effect for the engine?

don't think you should be getting that warning if its running on the hose...

5 min on the trailer seems kinda long too. I don't think you should run the ski more than 2 min on the trailer. You also don't want to wreck the carbon seal (seal that goes around the drive shaft). That seal it cooled and lubricated by water.
I'm assuming you have checked for leaks on your new mods. Check the coolant level, if ok, take the ski to the lake and test it. You'll probably find you just had an over heat alarm from running it on the trailer to long.
