    First ride out...got some questions

    Got out on the water today. Water temp was 80* and air temp was 80*ish. 875ft elevation. Im 130 higher than where i bought it from if that makes a difference...perfect day and good riding. I fire up and pull out of the NWZ after it warmed up. I have a 06 RXP stage 1+ in my signature plus riva air. Now Ive been reading so i dont look like a complete moron but im turning 8280 at 69MPH on the dream-ometer! Im thinking that I need a 15/20? On the throttle at 8100 I have about 3/4"of cable to go to the grip...whats my next step?

    Dude claimed it was a 15/19 in the FS add. I sent a PM to both of the previous owners so I will report as soon as I hear something
