    waveraider1100 hull w/ 99 65 u 1200 motor, still not fast????? why????

    this is my first post on here ever so please bare with me. im pretty new to tuning my own ski and just picked up a 1995 waveraider 1100 about a month ago. the ski has a 65u motor and all the electronics installed. i noticed a riva reed spacer, not sure what reeds are on it, it had the riva carb filter adapters with no filters( which i just bought), and a jerry rig coil on one of the coils( which i just replaced). the ski also has a full U.M.I steering setup with riva sponsons on the back ( in the up position), the stock intake grate with no bars, and it appears to have the wrong ride plate that only has two holes for bolts where the stock should have three. the problem is the ski isnt as fast as i think it should be. im not sure what impeller it has on it, but im thinking that its stock and thats whats holding the ski back. any thoughts??? also can i run msd wires to the stock coils??? thanks in advance for any help..

    Welcome... You increased the size of the engine by only ~10%
    So how fast is it?

    ditto. second the Welcome aboard, too!

    then chk compression and establish your baseline. Get a plate and scoop grate and rebuild the carbs. Go over tothe old school section and get to know them..they'll be very helpful.

    the ski is running 61 mph on the digital gauge on the ski but feels faster, i ran next to cars on the flordia turnpike and was faster than most, im trying to borrow a friends gps.. ok so i got a stock ride plate and intake grate and trim cables. how do i adjust the cables so the nozzel moves up and down fully, now it goes up nut doesnt seem togo as far down.
    with the stock ride plate i lost about 5 mph, so i switched back to the cut one, and i left the cut intake grate

    If you thought it was worth putting in a wave venture then its def worth putting in a wave raider

    the 94 was only lighter due to the motor so once you do the swap you wouldnt gain much. The 1100's ran 59ish stock so if you are in the 63 range then you are doing pretty good for a stock 1200.
