SLT750 One Cylinder Hotter Than Others
I noticed that the last 2 times riding on my 95 slt750,
the front piston(Mag) was way hotter than the other ones,when i flush the system with the hose the center and pto cylinders are cool to the touch,but the mag. cylinder is very hot, so i was going to do what i think is the easiest thing first. I was going to pull the cooling rail to check for a clog, but I figured i would ask here first, Is this normal or am i on the right track?
I haven't checked the cylinders while riding.Should I do that first?

One other thing,
There are no issues so far,no warning light or irregular sounds,
everything is still running smooth.

This is one of the reasons it is recommended to limit running time on the hose - uneven engine cooling.
Are the thermostat and pressure bypass plunger in place inside the thermostat housing? And not stuck open? If they are missing, or stuck open, then the cooling water will escape out the exit hose, rather than through the engine.
In the water, normal engine water temperature is around 140F, give or take. This is quite warm, but not burn-your-skin-off hot. If you can hold your hand on the cylinder head for 2-3 seconds, then the temperature is about right.

The mag cylinder will always be hotter than the other 2 becaUSE you have the electrical right in front of it.
on the slt........................... most have taken out the thermostat
unless you ride in very very cold waters..............................
both my slt's mag cylinders are hotter than the other cylinders..................
