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.

Mine did the same thing, but was not enough to set off the alarm only run bad and warm.

Dudes: what`s going on with the baffles? errosion? How are you burning them up? or are the welds breaking?...PR...

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.
