7850 rpms....tooo low!
i have a 05 rxp. i installed a riva stage one kit, rive opas block offs, checked sc slip at around 90 inch lbs, . When i first got the ski i would run consistently 8100. I had a hose clamp blow off that ran to the ride plate and dumped all my coolant. The ski of course stopped and started runnuing hot. i had the ski towed back to the dock. i found the blown off hose pretty quick when i got home. it seemd every since that happened i have lost a few hundred rpms. do you guys have some ideas that i could check . i lso had a chunk of fiberglass on the underside knocked out when i bought it i repaired it with mat and fiberglass. i then painted the bootm of the hull with auto ppg paint and sprayed it with ppg clear. it lasted about 3 months before it started peeling, could this cause rpm drop from the drag on the bottom?

Have you done a compression check on it or leak down test on the motor?
She may have cooked a little to long..
Is your oil level right? Over full oil will also cause rpm loss.
Fresh set of spark plugs?
Start with the easy cheap stuff 1st.

i did a compression test the cylendars were all good. i have 40 plus hours on the ski since the. it runs fine, if it would have had motor problems it would shown by now. it runs right at 68. i repalced plugs since then and oil is dead center of the stick.

whats the temperature out side when you are seeing 7850 ? the hotter the air the more rpms you lose. but this time of year i would think heat soak would be minimal.
