Loss Of Power/RPM Drop
With the Keihin carbs, I think it's important to open them up on occassion and have a look. This was Liz's Domestic engine after 2.5 years and 60+ hours of ride time. She was complaining about lack of power, RPM's were down and she had to choke the craft so it'd re-start when warm. DON'T WAIT UNTIL THIS HAPPENS TO YOU!
Dirty clogged carbs=lean destroyed engines, get yours done before they kick you in the teeth. If you don't want to get into the carbs, take them off and send them in to get a once over.
I think it was Randy who told me he goes through the entire rack for 120. The manuals are also here in the tech section.

I have 4 guys with boats falling on their faces or choke to start issues so I thought I'd bring this to the top.

Al, you running a fuel filter on that boat? If so, what the heck kind of fuel do you have in that state? I've seen crap like that come from steel gas tanks, but not plastic.

Interesting you should mention the steel tank, I was using fuel out of my buds piece of shit steel tank in the bed of his truck. Funny thing is I stopped doing that 6 months ago because I saw rust out of the nozzle BUT as we can see the damage was already done.
I now have a filter in-line, I was suprised to learn Baxter didn't have any filters from the tank to the carb rack.

For what it's worth, at our shop, we strain our store bought fuel through a water seperator funnel, especially when it comes from an unknown source/tank. It not only seperates moisture, it filters out first line contaminants.
