Thread: 96XP problem!

So I just took everything out for a nice clean (engine, head pipe, waterbox, EVERYTHING) seadoo only had cables,fuel oil lines, electrical etc.
So I reinstalled everything, although I added a brand new starter, new top end gasket kit, exhaust gasket kit, intake gasket kit, REBUILT the carbs, with new needles and seats of course, replaced my R&D pro plenum with Prok flame arrestors (basically the same thing, just looks nicer), in addition I changed my stock nozzle and venturi to a R&D 88/85 venturi & nozzle (which I had to say, I am pretty impressed; I feel like I gained control on turns)
After doing ALL that, I lost 2 Km/h. (1.25mph) I thought I would gain speed if anything.
I think that I messed up. When I installed the head pipe assembly and the cone pipe assembly AND used the metal clamp with that bolt and nut to harness them together, I did not use the loctite it says in the manual between them. I noticed a TINY bit of smoke coming from inside my seaddo which I never have before. Could this be where I'm losing speed? I am almost SURE of it. If this is, what exact kind of loctite do I need? It just says: "413710300 Sealant, Loctite 17914 80ml"
I am starting to hear knocking in the engine? I THINK. I don't get it. I've always run 91 octane and it has always ran 91 before me. Anyone know that one either? Thanks.
