    Fzr glitch

    Hey guy's, wondering if any of you have had any glitch's with your fzr. i had one the other day when going in reverse. as we usually go out as a family ( missus and 2 kids) i would throw the ski in reverse on full lock lean over so the reversing jet gets out of the water and use it a super soaker anyway usually the max rpm i can get whilst doing this is around 3500rpm can't remember exactly but its around that. on this occassion though it was reving to 6000rpm yay extra distance hehe... this has only happened once and i cant get it to do it again wondering if any others have had this happen to them.

    i think the rpms are limited in reverse, i could be wrong. im sure someone has their manual close by that could check.

    its no glitch you have a rpm limiter in reverse,,, however if you go full throttle forwards and turn and at the same time wack it in reverse sometimes you can override the rmp limiter as its hapenned to me a few times... there must be a sensor on it somewhere,,, ive been tempted to remove it but dont want to burn the prop out

    There is a rev limiter but you can bypass the sensor

    Or blow your reverse bucket off.

    If the FZR is like the FX, the sensor is in the reverse handle -- tiny little magnet.

    Tell ya what...I have a spare reverse bucket, so if anyone breaks 30 mph in reverse and blows the bucket off you can have mine free...as long as you post a youtube vid of it.
