    Sl900 Low Rpm/mph

    This sl900 began having issues with rpms/mph. I went back through the carbs and everything looked ok. When I was reinstalling, I looked to my right (rear of ski) and saw this. Partially blocked exhaust? Whaddayallthink?

    The back side of this exhaust tube is super soft rubbah! Actually, the whole tamn dhing is super soft rubbah. And, where the moofler rests against one of the stud/nut in the rear, there is a pin hole leak I'm assuming because there is some black soot around the stud/nut.

    Yeah, I've been thinking ign or carburetion. A partially clogged exhaust will give the symptoms that I have. It'll rev to about 6000 out of water and will only do about 40-42 mph in the agua. I'm gonna change this pipe and weld up the moofler before I go any further.
