    I bought an fx HO cruiser and so far its amazing the smooth acceleration and quiet idling its awesome. Top speed on the high 50's so its not bad at all. Make sure it has good compression.

    if you dont want to break any speed records and just want a good cruising ski they are spot on ive owned one,,, bulletproof engine
    if you want a bit of speed aswell go for a ho160

    Great Ski

    My best friend has a 2003 FX140 (or maybe 2004....whatever the first year of the 4 stoke engine was) and he loves it. As previously stated, it's not the fastest, but he has had NO problem whatsoever with it. He added a few bolt-ons and has a GPS of approx. 60mph. Great ski if you want a cruiser.

    hmmmm im excited to have that skii already... the owner told me that the skii needs a new wear ring...because of the excessive clearance... what are the setups if i want it to gain more speeds??

    Lots of people around our TN area desire that particular ski for its reliablity and good gas mileage. I think you can get 120 miles out of a tank at or around 40-45 mph.

    Get rid of the air filter; you can get a velocity stack kit from Riva for it; I think we got ours up to 56 mph before we sold them. But if you have the need for speed you might want to pick another model.
