SHO mods for muppets.......
Not all of us were born with a silver spanner in hand : ) Least of all me!
I have read umpteen million threads on SHO mods and got lost somewhere between Rideplates and intakes, air filters... then my eyes kinda glazed over!
So.. Have a stock SHO, want to open it up a bit more, a few more MPH but have no clue where to start! I ride all water salt, fresh, I do like to go OS weather permitting once a week or so but am not a wave jumper per se... as for how much I want to spend... Depends! Lets just say if it needs it, I will get it...but I dont want to break the bank! Can you offer any suggestions and to what speed it will get me up to?

Have you checked the 'FZR/SHO speeds and mods database'? Its a good place to start. The sky is the limit. You just have to ask yourself, "how fast do I wanna go?" Again, the sky IS the limit. what's your limit?

There is a limit to the mods you can do to keep the extended warr. talk with riva and see what they will allow you to do and still keep the warr. you want the intake and exhaust ff and the exhaust ribbon removed and replaced with a sleve, then get the intake grate and ppk kit and have Jim mod your ride plate and pitch your prop that should get you to 70 without losing the warr.

talk to the dealer and ask him if by fitting an intake grate you void the warrainty,
as you ride in the salt and go offshore its a must for hook you will really notice the diffrence straight away..

Sammy, IMO start with these:
Then repitch the stock prop($50-75) & this will put you comfortably at ~70 with much better acceleration & handling. With the exception of the manifold upgrade & prop, if you feel comfortable changing a tire, you'll be fine installing this stuff yourself. The included instructions are very easy to follow & only basic hand tools are required. Having a shop do it will add probably $3-400 in labor. I did leave out the exhaust. It doesn't add a whole lot of performance at this level & it's noisy. This will give you a ski that is as reliable as stock without voiding your warranty.
If you really want to get to 74/75 then you have two options:
After market supercharger(C3 or B1), Powershot fuel controller, aftermarket intercooler & blow-off valve. This will run another $1500-2500 in parts depending on which parts you choose. You will however be in iffy territory with your warranty.
Second choice is reflashed ECU...only $750, but your warranty will definately be toast.

As for fitting them.... I would not trust myself... I get lost in a paper bag, let me loose on the engine no telling what damage I will do!
The ski goes back to Riva on the 15th, have told them the vibration is virtually gone, but they still want it as the Yamaha bloke is flying in
Guess I will shop till I drop till then, get everything and wait till I get it back b4 getting it fitted.
