    High Temp - Possible Solution

    Just came accross another reason for high temp in the exhaust. If you get repeated high temps on your ski, part of the reason could be a blockage in your exhaust pipe. After having repeated high temp warnings, I found that the baffles in my water box were burned up and broken apart. Part of the baffle lodged in my Riva thru-hull exhaust. This caused repeated high temp warnings even though my water and sensors were all fine.

    Here is a picture of my water box with the broken baffles at the very bottom.

    Hope this helps someone.

    P.R.: I think I had a water shortage - at some point. The baffles were cooked. Motor is fine though. I think the big hp is putting out big heat. I'm now looking into adjusting the water flow to the cooling line that attaches to the rear of the thru-hull exhaust pipe. If you plug it up you get significantly more water to the j-pipe and sensor areas. Does anyone know if the rear cooling line for the exhaust actually cools or is it more for noise reduction?

    BTW - I pulled the broken baffles out of the waterbox and had some holes drilled to complete the waterbox mod....some things come to a good ending. Sounds great! Thanks for the tips Shibs!


    Nils: Sorry for the late reply. Got the package. Thanks again.

    Some ppl are welding bungs in and not cleaning out tje J pipe plugging the jets at the bottom of the J-pipe... then running hot because one of three holes are plugged. Then at wot the baffles burn out.

    Jawz: Very possible. I blew compressed air though mine to be sure all was fine.
