    08 rxp-x 255

    hey guys im new to this forum. i have a 08 rxp x 255. has 140 hours. supercharger was done at 80 miles. i got it used 2 months ago. ski runs great, fast af. only problem im having is if i stay wot for too long ( minut or 2) after riding it for 30min or more i get a p1116 code and ski goes in to idle mode. pull the key start it back up and its fine i can go wot again without any problems. this has happened 2 times. another thing that happened was the temp light started flashing while my buddy was riding it. he said he shut it off let it sit for a min restarted it and it was fine after that. i had a gp1200 befor this so this whole 4 stroke cloosed loop is new stuff to me. can anyone shine some light on this problem. thank you.

    You mean P0116?????

    p1116, i tried looking it up on the seadoo code chart and there nothing for that code thats why im seeing if any one has come across the same thing. the p0116 is for coolent temp sensor. from what i read p1116 is an overheating problem but no one has a solid salution or answer.

    Most of the time its the exhaust that overheats. Run the ski on a hose and see if that helps.
    Also, what is the coolant level?

    i got the ski with coolant tank half way filled and its still the same. i think.... im going to mark it befor i go out riding next time. i know my one hose that runs to the hear exchanger is i guess you can call it melting?( its very soft an sticky) the one that runs right by the coolant tank. i thought it was just from touching the bottle but im not shure.

    I know you said you are new to the closed loop. The closed loop only cools the engine. The exhaust is still cooled by water supplied by the pump. If you have something clogging your pump supplied water, then you will not cool the exhaust, including the exhaust manifold. That hose you describe makes me think you have something clogging your water supply. Try flushing it then go from there.

    whats the best way of flushing the exhaust? hook up a hose and let it run or is there more to it?

    Make sure you start it first, then turn on the water. Rev it up a few times. Don't run it more than a couple of minutes, and turn the water off before you stop the motor.
