    XL1200 LTD Exhaust Temperature Alarm

    Lake report - I tested the completely rebuilt engine yesterday (1200 power valve). The ski ran great. However, I got an Exhaust Temperature Alarm after about 5 minutes. I allowed the ski to cool and I rode some more. After two more times alarming and allowing to cool, I rode some more. The alarm never came back. I rode for about 40 minutes and it never returned. I am running a cat converter which was in very good shape when I reassembled a few days ago.

    Any thoughts and should I be concerned?

    I would fit a D-plate & sensor chip and get rid of the catalytic converter
