    To wedge or not to wedge?

    Got some questions about pump wedges .

    I have a 2007 F12X with a few mods, but a stock prop (for the moment).

    Will adding a pump wedge (2 - 5 degree) only improve top end?
    Or will a wedge also improve hole shot?
    Does a wedge have a negative effect on turning?

    My Opinion:

    I hate wedges! It is a band aid for other issues. however, on smooth water you will see a gain in speed as more of the hull is out of the water. Install the wedge you already have and form an opinion of your own. the fat part of the wedge goes toward the bottom of the ski. You wont need to change any cables.

    To add.....

    The F12 series already have a built in wedge. You wasting your time adding more. Better to study what a "wedge" is for and why.

    You will find a wedge on a F series Honda as a possible Top speed blip on the radar screen. Nothing more.

    Interesting info. I have one that I will try soon.

    The stock ride on the F12's just seems way to flat.

    hate to bring up a really old thread but i guess its better than starting a new one.

    what are the opinions on a pump wedge for an r12x? Its stock for now but will probably be adding a chip and intercooler soon(ish)

    +1 Makes the ski bounce too much at top speed.

    Problem with the honda's is the hull and ecu. You swap that motor into something like a Gpr, upgrade valve train that can handle some Rpms and put a standalone and spin that motor to 10K. Then you will see a very fast Honda. Otherwise, leave it stock because everything you do will get a F1 code on the stock ecu.

    I wont ride without it!
    Seriously it makes the ski more nimble and easier to get more air. Not to mention more top speed. Two-up it will be more porpoise happy at low speeds, but at high speed, the ski is more stable one or two up.

    I do not recommend them for F-12Xs though.
