Default 6v92 Pyrometer

My pyrometer is inop. Before I go trying to fix it I wanted to ask what the local opinion is on them for the V92's. I've read the two strokes move so much air there ins't a reason to monitor the exhaust temps. This true?



Should I fix it or find something else to put in that dash hole?

While it IS true the 2 stroke move a ton of air, I keep my pyrometer operational for the sole reason of monitoring turbo cool down before shutting the engine down.

Ditto- plus it will tell you when you have an intake scoop clogged with leaves over the screen (too hot) AND indicate when you have a fuel supply issue (too cold)

some of the old timer truck drivers had one on each side of the engine,they used them to diagnose problems,if one side was hotter,possible injector issue,etc.

What is the proper method for shutting down a hot engine?. What do I look for on my 6V.?

Yours came with a pyro factory? I don't have a pyro, or a boost gauge, or engine/trans oil temps!
