    ultra lx overheat

    I took my ski out on Sat. and it seemed to run fine, but when i did the flush routine and disconnected the hose and revved the last of the water out, steam started coming out of the flush system and it started to beep HEAT, does anyone know what would cause this?

    Did you "rev" it for more than a couple of times, and were they full throttled?

    Did you start the ski before turning on the water?

    RE:

    Yes i started the ski before the water, and i revved it a few times at about half throttle for maybe 5-10 secs, would that be long enough to overheat,

    10 sec is a long time, it gets hot fast. I do mine maybe for three seconds..three to five throttle pulls...

    So then you dont think anything is wrong with it, just running too long w/o water cooling?

    Run it on a hose for a while, throttle it every once in a while, you'll know in 15 mins
