    2004 Honda r-12x turbo running issues

    I just bought this ski last week with only 70 hrs. It's in great shape, but it seems like when it gets warmed up and your wide open on the throttle the rpm's back down about every minute or so. Anybody else have this problem or know what to look for? Like I said it ionly happens when the tthrottle is wide open and your running at top speed for an extended period. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks. Ps it seems like it looses power during that short period only
    2-3 seconds thanks again

    Its dropping boost due to either high intake air temps(heat soak), detonation/cause of bad fuel. These to things would make the most sence.
    If it is heat soak theirs only one way to resolve that issue . Replace ic with larger aftermarket unit. The am mount of time it takes to remove and clean stock ic might as well get a performance gain swell.

    Make sure you have premium fuel. Regular will cause this behavior.

    What about the knock sensor? I was told that if it detects a knock it will slow the ski down.
