Water temp. on my 01 T-Cat runs 130 deg.

As far as EGT's mine run 1250 ish in mid range riding. 30-40 mph on the trails. Wide open they drop back to 1150 or so.

Just remember with the analog guages that you must consider the outside temps. when reading them. Your baseline is @ 32F. IF it's 10F outside you must add 22 degrees to your actual egt readings. If it's 54F outside, you must subtract 22 degrees from your actual reading. Just remember to read your manual. Did you get the cheap light kits installed? That was a hair puller for me, kept breaking those cheap little wires when I went to install them. You should never go over 1250 degrees in any throttle position, I was told that's the benchmark for a piston failure/meltdown.

thanks guys!!!

ya i got those poor light kits installed and i sent a email to Westach telling them how poor they are.

I have some trouble shooting to do as my PTO side is not reading anything but the Center and MAG are reading ok.
