Thread: 2 things good!

  1. #1

    2 things good!

    Got my FZR back from a SC clutch repair and my extended warranty covered it! Way to go Yamaha!!!

    2nd thing.....Also had a dual prop installed and all I can say is...WOW! Explosive acceleration. It was very windy today but it was kicking out 8560 rpms which is about 360 more than my 13/24 skat trak. Speaking of which, they could not get it off the shaft and had to get a new shaft for the new prop.

    Hi Tadam,

    what are the pitches of each of your prop (the main and the inducer one)?

    That great news about you getting back on the water....I know the feeling. One question for you though is have you GPS'd your ski since moving to the twin prop? I'm very curious to read about your numbers. Also, have you noticed any cavitation what so ever? Your 79.8 is impressive and tits if you have no cavitation, but I'm just wondering if that prop has brought you down on speed.

    I don't know. I'll find out which one from R & D they sent (3 to choose from).

    I have not GPS'd it yet, the lake water is too choppy from 20 mph winds. I do have some slight cavitation and have e-mailed contact at R & D to see if there is anything else I could do about it. I'll post after I GPS it. I did notice about 300-400 more rpms with this prop.
