Ok....Here I go Part 3 ! ! !
Cant get better that this folks! If you remember my earlier threads, the coolant is not leaking. Did a pressure test and everything is great! Good news there...
I go out riding today, and the ski was iding like crap! I thought it was the wd40 I used to lube the TB after the second water ingestion I had about a week back. Ran the crap out of it like I did last time with non-similar results. It still idled like crap, and continued to do so all day. On a short ride I took 2 of my boys to rent a pair of jet skis the exhaust pipe poped off the waterbox end and got some water in, I notoced right away and got the water out and had to go to the ramp to take the ski out, drain the water completely and re-tighten the t-bolt.
Ski ran like crap all day not going past 6800rpms which got me worried thinking the washers were gone again, but the 2 times its happened to me the ski never idled like crap, even on idle.
Anyways....stopped using the ski thinking positive that it was the TB that needed alignment since I have taken it out twice for a cleaning and wd40 lube. I thought I will take it to the dealer tomorrow to get it done......
Well....leaving back to the ramp to call it a night/day.....the ski all of a sudden decided to run like a champ!!! Spent all day running like crap, my visitors from Puerto Rico were unable to run the ski....and at the end it decides to run good Managed to squeeze 66.7 @ 7800rpm with 3/4 tank.
Please tell me what to do.....

I would take it out again and if it is running fine, I would sell it immediately!.....just kidding

I would trade it in on a NEW SKi and start over, but that is just me. I don't keep them longer than two years anyway.
But that is way to many problems to keep it.
Sorry Just my opinion.

Sounds like maybe your plugs are going bad...
Mine did that when the plugs died...It would run like crap and idle terrible and never want to rev past a certain point...All of a sudden it would spring to life and run like a raped ape....
Eventually the plugs finally gave up the ghost and it was stuck at 3000 rpms until I changed them...

When you say the exhaust "T" bolt, do you mean the one right at the exhaust manifold. If so, then your probably leasking exhaust into the engine comparment causing it to suck int exhaust into the intake and causing it to run like crap.
If the T bold came off and your manifold seperated from the exhaust, something is wrong. (broken motor mounts? T bolt not installed right?)
