Yamaha sx230 overheating. The engine goes into limp mode (6500 rpm or less). Is this a bad temp sensor in the exhaust? Has great water flow.

  • Are you sure it has great flow? Are you getting water out of both pee holes?

  • Yea and they both feel the same temp. I can turn the "hot" engine off and back on and the light goes off and will run fine for 5 minutes or so. Then does it again

  • There is a water inlet inside the impeller tunnel, shine a flashlight in there and make sure that it's clear of debris

  • It's clean
