    GSXL Running on one cylinder unless choked, water on Raves

    I have a ’99 GSXL (250 hrs) that will not rev above ~3800 rpm unless its choked about halfway (feels like it is running on one cylinder as sometimes there is a surge in power )

    -Once it gets going, it runs completely normal on the upper rpm range (without choke)
    -Drained the fuel and filled with fresh 93 with no change in performance.
    -Pulled the Raves and found water droplets and grey sludge on the guillotine. PTo is pictured as it was contained more sludge.
    -No signs of water leak while flushing

    Any thoughts? Thanks!

    Looks like it has a major water ingestion issue... probably at the exhaust manifold or the pipe gaskets...
