SOURCE: I have a Ski doo 583 RAVE motor theat backfires

It sounds like you have a reed problem they should be in a "cage" just behind the carbs on the cylinder and if they were missing a piece or if they were cracked it would cause the engine to backfire. If they are in good condition they should close against the cage and stop the back pressure coming through the carbs.

SOURCE: fuel mix in jetski is to oil rich need to lean out

Jet ski's do not have an adjustment on the oil pumps unless they are cable operated. Most just run off the end of the crankshaft. If the machine sits for a while and the oil pump seal is leaking. Oil will collect in the crankcase and take a few minutes of running to clear out. You can live with this, replace the pump, or block off the pump and pre-mix. A popular, cheap solution but a pain when it comes to refueling. As for the lack of power you probably have water corrosion in your carburetor nothing a simple cleaning won't cure.

How do I adjust seadoo RFI mixture?

There should be an adjustment screw that looks like a "t" on the side of each carb. Screw it in 1/8th turn at a time to lean it out. Too much and engine detonation. I would recommend getting the retrofit kit to block off the oil tank and run mix fuel. Then there are no issues with too lean/rich, oil pump failure, plugged oil filter, broken or collapsed oil lines etc.
