    Question SHO overheating

    I took my SHO out saturday and after 20-30 min of cruising the buzzer came on. We were cruising at about 40mph through some good chop. So I jumped off and checked for debris but found nothing, then I checked the pissers all had good flow at idle. All the cooling hoses were good with no kinks. Anyone else have cooling issues like this?

    is your sho stock?? I have heard modified getting hot but not stock...
    most people are getting the r&d cooling kit...not sure if it is only to cool the intercooler or everything.
    did you run it again after it cooled down? how did it run rest of the day??

    Its not too modded, I have the r&d cfm kit, intake grate, air intake, and 13/23 prop. I'm hoping the prop isn't putting too much of a load on the motor. I just put it on for when I get a blower wheel. The r&d cooling kit is for the intercooler but they are coming out with one for the motor.

    I have to think this was a fluke or you just had a temporary blockage. Nothing in your list of mods makes me worry. Keep an eyeball on her and ride...

    Faulty thermostat maybe. I remember Jerry removed his. I spoke to Glenn at R&D last week & he confirmed they're coming out with an engine cooling kit that feeds off the pump strainer, but I don't think it's really necessary with your mods.

    Hope they have a dual outlet plate or a T fitting in mind.

    Yeah, I thought it only happened once.

    I had the overheat come on once so far.we were idling in leaves,twigs and post rain trash. The alarm beeped a few times, then went solid alarm. My buddy saw that only 1 pisser on left was flowing. Something was blocking pump.

    Started and stopped ski a few times and it blew out. Haven't had a problem since.

    I pay more attention to the pissers now.
