    No Wake Zone button speed too fast?

    I idle my FX HO through my lakes wakezones and bumped it upto 5mph just to see what the wake looked like and there's no way it would be allowed by our water patrol. Has anybody else ran into this problem? Is there any way to reduce the No Wake button speed? It would be a worthless feature if I upgraded to a SHO model..

    Have you tried the button yet?

    "No wake mode" is actually slower than 5 mph. It just displays and locks that speed on the dash.

    You can also work the trim to help out.

    +1. it is preset at a certain rpm for that feature.
    you could get a trolling plate and install it over the steering nozzle. or drag a nylon anchor bag to slow it down.
    how much do you think you will be using that feature.
    the trin idea has worked for me before.
    or you could change your prop pitch so it goes slower at those rpms

    Water is too thin. Dump a whole bunch of gluten in the water and mix thoroughly

    Hey, it's Friday...

    I think the law states for no wake, is the slowest speed you can go while keeping your pwc controlled in a safe manner. There is no "speed limit".
    My triple does not like to idle under 1500-1800 and that to some is a bit fast. Too bad!

    Could be different in other states.
