    MPH increase with this mod ???

    I'm not sure exactly how many, but I would imagine this mod is worth at least a couple mph. I had a few imperfections on one of my side vents and it was driving me nuts. I decided I wanted to do something different, and have yet to see them done to match the rest of the orange on the ski. I had a good friend of mine who fabs alot of parts for my race bike and does my painting do them. To finish off the chrome, I may install a new black front nose piece. Here are some before and after pics.

    To each his own....I'm not a fan of chrome. I've been more than pleased at the mph my ski has run with so little done, so I can almost afford to lose 3 mph. lol I'll leave the chrome alone and leave it for those who really need it...

    Beautiful addition to the ski, should be worth atleast 1.5 GPS increase, that's kinda like those Ultras, everybody knows the red ones were faster than the blue ones!!!! Really looks good!!!

    I like it. Never liked the chrome. He did an excellent job matching the color and finish.
    I don't know if it's faster on the water ,but it sure looks faster sitting there!

    I think he meant it as a compliment bro, "it looks mean"!
