Put Groco Strainer from GH on last night.
Made a 6+ hr ride today.
Got "temp" warning 3 times.
All happened after a short-2 to 6 min "beverage stop.
While ideling away after a short stop- beep- beep- temp--- limp mode----
I immediately shut off engine-- waited 1-2 min and restarted--
First 2 times this happened- all seemed well after 2nd restart and we continued riding.
Last time it happened was in front of house - and took 3 restarts and a longer wait for things to return to normal.
Only happened 4 times in 6 hour day with probably 15 start stop cycles.
Anyone think the strainer is draining and it is taking too long to refill and get to the Hot engine?
40 hrs on ski and never happened before I put on the strainer.
Will try it again tomorrow where I can pull seat and watch strainer cup flow and see if I can duplicate hot issue.

Had mine in the Gulf last week rode for about 1 hour then went to fill the tank up, as I was leaving marina at idle (no wake zone) buzzer went off turned it off for a minute cranked it back up check the pissers they were working and bumped the throttle and no more problems mine is all stock rode several more hours for the next 3 days and no worries maybe it was a fluke?

Duplicate dproblem again today--
Ran for 20-30 min got warmed up--
Shut down for 5-7 min and when restarted- beeper went off after 10-15 seconds ideling---
Did this twice--
Pulled strainer and went back stock---all is well so far--
Havn't been able to get warning again- will try more tomorrow.
Installation is pretty straight-forward--
Similar to jpack- except placed strainer on floor by bilge pump.
It must be routed correctly because it cooled suffeciently at wot and cruising for 6+ hours.
Plenty of hose so nice curves- no kinks-.

What about intercoolers on these? Has anyone checked them out yet to see if they can get clogged easily? Or has anyone taken them apart to look/inspect one?
