    Just a slight difference in humidity on any given day could account for 50 RPM's.

    There is nothing wrong with your ski

    Down 50 RPM's

    Probably did the following:

    1. threw rod(s)
    2. shattered every valve
    3. Blew Supercharger
    4. Ingested 4 trillion gallons of water (=1 big lake)
    5. Hit submerged tree cracking hull
    6. Ate one large pike into intake grate and pump
    7. Clogged exhaust cooling system with item 6
    8. opas fell of (but that would help)
    9. battery fried
    10. Tach broke
    11. bug hit ski and stuck.
    12. big bug hit driver and to scared to go WOT anymore
    13. not enough wax on op of ski, aerodynamic resistance

    Just kidding, as Jerry said, weather can account for 50rpms

    We were riding a few different skis at the freedom ride and I said to Shib- "Us Sea-doo guys lose a few rpm on the digitach and go into a panic".

    Meanwhile the tachs on the other machines are not even visible, they are so small and use bar graphs. I think they're onto something by basically telling the rider: "Don't worry what rpms you're at stupid, just ride- you'll know when it's broken".

    Makes sense...although maybe they just dont think the "other" skis would be modded as much...
