    Temporary Performance Issue

    So, I was out on the lake today and making some WOT runs with the new mods in my signature. On the 3rd or 4th WOT run - I throttled down from top speed - and my RXP started to miss/sputter. It idled fine, so I throttled back up and it would miss @ around 6000 rpm.

    I decided to run the ski back to the dock at 30mph because, It was running really rough any faster. After about 2 minutes at 30mph my ski suddenly acted like it was going do die, and then suddenly it decided that it was done running like shit?

    I put another 1/2hr on my ski after that happened and it ran beautifully. So, the question is - WHAT HAPPENED?

    Thanks,

    Craigo

    Water intrusion perhaps?

    There's no way water made it into my intake.

    Anybody here experience this?

    I blame it on the fact that I was about to ride the ski.

    does sound like water,or condesation,the power coolers get warm or hot air pushed through them,then when the skis is left after a ride it condenses to moisture.so you warm up...fine...then you let the ski rip on wot runs....pushing through the water....it farts and clears...pull a hose off the cooler see if you can collect any small amount of water with a rag....might be your prob

    I really think my ski is possessed by the devil. I bet the next time I take it out - the handle bars will rotate 360 degrees and it will puke green pudding all over me.
