I will fire it up again tomorrow and if it's still the same I will take it to the dealer it's still under warranty.

Mine used to take good few mins of running before it warmed up. Especially when only idling...

Aye in an hour they shud just be dropping off to sleep again

I wouldn't worry mine never gets warm on tick over, Least notso that you can tell, if you fancy a run out of fleet wood to check things over give me a shout happy to tag along and show where to launch etc

Nor mine; all sounds normal to me. If the engine overheated an alarm would go off. I run my jet ski every Sunday morning on my driveway just to annoy my neighbours. I think you're missing out there.
