New Toy The Fun Begins
Got my 260X on the weekend and i am wrapped like a little boy in a lolli pop shop.
Well have to say its a very well build craft finish is much better than some of there competion i have to say they don have all the new gadgets like SEADOO and YAMAHA but i am happy very happy.
Been sitting in my garage all weekend with no time to ride taking a day off tomorrow to go for a ride and run her in nice and HARD.
Firdt MOD removed all then safey and warning stickers.
Another thing had a quick look under the hull coming from a GPR back ground where allot of speed comes from the hull i noticed something straight away and there is speed to be gained with out knowing what the ski does.
The ride plate sits lower than the pump shoe so it will be causing drag 100%. The ride plate needs a few MM taking off it to match or sitt higher instant speed gain.
Will keep you posted with the MODS i plan to do

Congrats! Great ski, have the green 260 myself. Much improved over my old 250x. Riva ride plate and pump wedge and you will break 70 stock. I've hit over 72 w/same set up

Yep, get a Riva ride plate.
I have one for sale if you really want one. ($175)

Ski will be set up for Chop so ride plate will be staying stock or might go with the R&D.
Not chasing flat water top speed chasing constant hook up in rough/ocean riding.
PM sent for the RIVA plate will only use 3-4 times a year when i go lake riding.
