Can you help me wit my rave valves??????
I posted before about this but now I have pictures I can't stad to see oil coming out ware it should'nt be. I'm not sure what I can do to stop this but if someone can explain it to me I'm pretty good with engines. I'm not sure either if this is harming my engine running it like this take a look and tell me what you think. The motor is coming apart this winter so I just want to get through the summer thanks.

what is that in pic #2? that definitly needs replaced! it should look like the other one. you also dont have the updated bellows(the orange rubber thing) they should be green. I would pull the raves and inspect them thouroughly. then order replacement parts and gaskets. new springs, bellows, seals, that black cap that screws into the rave and new springs that go under the top cover caps.

New rubber rings on the valves, top and bottom...new bellews and springs...and a different plastic top for both (one white and one black, not good)....basically new everything (including base gaskets) except for the housing, valve, and top black cap...

the rave caps are different but it isn't all that critical. the new style is the beige one, the old style is the black. the updated bellows is the green one. before spending any money, try tightening the spring on the leaky rave. unscrew the spring, cut it 1/4" and put it back together. you should also replace the o-rings under the housings. once they get hard they tend to leak.

I'm not to sure what you mean by unscrewing the spring The spring is losse it is not attached to anything do you mean the red screw on top of the rave valve cover? The one that is leaking the worst has a spring and the black one don't have a spring at all I was going to order one but I want to get all the parts I need at once. I have a service manual that tells you how the red screw should be set should I go tighter than that you think that spring is weak? Freaking all the parts for pwc cost so much I can't belive it it's going to be allmost 200 to replace everything crazy!!!!

you don't need to replace the bellows and black rave cap unless they are damaged (very unlikely).

Ok I think I got it you guys are talking about the spring around the rave valve not the one that comes out when you take the cap off. I will give it a shot , I am cleaning them already I just want you guys to see the mess it made is their any chance this can harm the motor? I will have to order the parts I live in bum-f%#k so dealers are to far for me but I want to go riding this weekend!!!
