    Top speed 1100 zxi??

    Took out my carbs to install primer kit, and realized at full throttle my carbs were only opening up about 3/4 of the way what should the top speed be on a 1998 1100 zxi with no mods other than a primer kit. The last time i was out the speedo was reading like 54mph.

    Anybody know where to get a rebuild kit for the 98 cv carbs? Also need the carb base gaskets

    the 900's should run about 54-55, and the 1100's about 58-59 on gps....

    1996 ZXI1100.....GPS at 54-54.4 mph, (was indicating 65mph) tested both upwind and downwind this weekend.....16C temp...1150 feet above sea level, rider 135 lbs 80% full tank of gas....some chop, but ski wasn't porpoising.

    Ski is old, 100% stock, never serviced, never rebuilt, regular gas

    Thats not bad, but I bet your prop is a little dinged up. The 96 year was the fastest and with good compression they should easily be 56-58. Does the trim work? With the trim down or even they will run 3-5 mph less. Do a search for "ZXI MAN" to get a pretty good write up on taking the zxi to 61-63 and crazy acceleration.
