HELP! was stranded today
I drove for about 10 minutes at about 60mph then when we got to the destination I rode it hard and did about 2-5 minutes of spin outs and circles.
Then all of a sudden it started spuddering and I couldn't go past 3k rpm.
I'm pretty sure it wasn't a stick because it didn't feel the same. It usually shakes. It was at exactly 3500 rpm it would make a putter sound like it was loosing power. I have the ski pulled out and looked the intake/impeller up and down and can't see any debris.
I also have a crankcase venilator installed and it had about 2 cups of oil in it, from 20 minutes of driving !
Any clues , I'm taking it in tommorow.
IS MY CLUTCH HOSED!?!?!
I have the following mods on my rxt.
2" wedge, riva intake great, 4" air intake to the front suction with overwear pre-filter, 4" drilled intake going into front compartment with overwear prefilter, crankcase venilator oilcatcher, denso ixu-27 sparkplugs.

Pretty much, I had the high temp go on once but it does that occasionaly after a couple 180 slips. I dealer said it happens when air gets in the pipe where the sensor is.
Pretty much 5 minutes of spinning and quick turns then I couldn't go over 3500k rpm or it would spudder like it was about to die

you probly got the air filter wet I did it 2 and It took a few min.to dry it out then it was back to normal,I nad to ride it and keep it pinned and the
rpm slowly came back.(I taught I killed it but I was lucky).
I was also doing spins and stuff.

I took it out today just to see.....
I put on my new crank case breather just for s&g's.
It ran like a champ. spuddered at first then cleared up.
I think when I had the other crankcase venilator on the vent clogged up and backed up my crankcase (whatever that does).
Here is the post of my new crankcase venilator.
Anyone know if I did any damage with backing up the crankcase, anything I can do or will it naturally clean itself out (I think it has already).
