"Copperhead Project" by Personal Watercraft Illustrated
Check this out - very cool that PWI is also attacking the offshore scene with the 250X. Should be interesting to see what Kevin Shaw puts together.

Don't get ahead of yourselves.
Given my current track record, the project should be called "Roadkill."

Hahn was an ECU issue. I had an intermittent caution code come up half-way through the first lap that retarded the timing to a "safe mode." Rumor has it that MacCluggage had the same issue weeks earlier.
I chalk it up to a corroded sensor that wasn't replaced during our rebuild.
I've chased all the 600-feet of wiring and haven't found the source, but, alas, like problems of this magnitude, the phantom issue has temporarily fixed itself. (It's sure to pop up again.)
The plan now is once it comes back from paint (at Blowsion) is to spend a couple days with Bill Chapin to troubleshoot the craft before LB2CAT. I'm hoping to redeem myself from last year's.

Your heat issue is more then likly the sensor on the pipe. You undoughtely took it out to paint and powder coat. When reinstalling it, it needs to be put back in with oil 10w-30. This aviods it from getting too hot and the sensor can read a even Temp.
Page 14-7 of Service manuel.
I say its probably do to this becuase I my self have over looked it too and forgot the oil. Only needs a tiny bit.
Well I think Im changing from the Diamondback name to Mongoose, dont they eat snakes? lol

As for the exhaust manifold temp sensor, that's a very good tip, one that I too, obviously, overlooked. Too bad the Ultra's in a crate on its way to Oregon, or I'd do it right now. I must remember to address that then.
And Skip, believe me, I am very familiar with your tech site. I frequent it often.

i hear you have to take the pipe out to get the oil in and sensor on.. what a pain. what abuot just unsecrewing sensor during rough riding or racing. why not.
yep..i took mine out due to curiousity.
