Oil INSIDE rave valve bellows
Is this a problem? Probably around 30 hours since last cleaned, run Quicksilver oil. Ski is down a few hundred rpms, and would randomly drop a few hundred more at WOT.
Already cleaned fuel filter, Pulled carbs and cleaned small filters in carbs.

Your using quicksilver and that might be the cause of the random rpm lose.. It does not burn clean or complete and gums things up pretty quick..
The high temp and humidity is most likely the cause for the rpm drop..

I ran quicksilver once..when I was in a bine. Never again. Raves got so gummed up with only a few hours.

Im going to switch to Amsoil interceptor after this tank is low. I know quicksilver isnt the best. I took the raves completely apart, none of the O rings are in bad shape or brittle.. I cleaned everything and ill check them in a few hours.

When switching quicksilver to amsoil you must purge the old quiksilver out. It does not mix with oem or amsoil oil. Replace the oil filter too.

Are you running premix or stock injection?

Problem is fixed, im assuming it was possibly the front carb filter causing a restriction at high rpms
