    hi temp problem

    yeah well i was out running my ski this weekend and it kep running hot over and over i couldnt go over 5000 or it would over heat well that night i asked a buddy bout it and he said it was because i didnt remove the sensor on the water box he said that your spossed to take it out plug the hole and tie the sensor to another pip well i said it was bull and i have heard that the baffles burn out on the water box well i pulled my thru hull off and bam yup thats what it was a part of the baffle stuck in the exti side and was blocking half the hole but the reason i was getting at this post was to prove that you do not need to remove the heat sensor i ran it for about 3 or 4 weekend in a row all day long each day b4 the baffles melted out so yeah thats my info heres my question




    my question is i have hear that you can cut the box and shorten it to make it like the rotax box or can i just gut it and leave it alone or what


    thanks guys

    They probably burt out because you have a clogged up intercooler restricting the water flow.

    Just gut the waterbox (remove the baffle)

    Make sure you have no kinks in the water lines going to and from the intercooler.

    i have already did that i geuss i should just take out the intercooler then and what would happen if i was to shorten the water box after i gut it

    also would wot make the baffles burn out or long trips at because i have been riding almost every weekend to a bar on the river its about 15-20 miles and i was runng usually aroun 5-6000rpms unless a boat came then i would go wot but i did run wide open all the back one tiem following my father cus his boat runs nearly 100mph but yeah could any of that cause the baffle to burn out

    I have been having a modded waterbox forever and a day and have never burned out a waterbox baffle.

    You really need to be looking for a water flow problem.

    so no temp change or any thing of the sort by making it shorter and the only thing that could have caused it was a water block
    thats better to know kinda haha cus i was hoping that it wouldnt be anything else and i have check the flow out the exhaust still putting plenty of water out the exhaust but i geus ill pull the water box out tomorrow and post some pics of it on hear

    you think you should put the thermostat on it or just leave the stock on on cus liek a car the cooler it runs the better
