    04 Yamaha cruiser FX HO Top Speed 69?!

    Hi Guys,

    I drove my FX HO cruiser, see attached pic to Catalina, I went wide open throttle and got to see speedometer randomly at different times show 63 (2 times), 64 ( 2 times), 61 (3 times), 68 and 69 only once! None of these numbers held for more than an instant! Most of the time when I was separating from water or touching after jumping!

    Now my on board GPS showed Max Speed of 57.9 MPH! Why was I reading higher on the speedometer. Is the wheel getting spun up faster when it jumps or touches the water! What is the Max speed one should expect of this machine in the ocean?

    Here's a video of us chasing dolphins as well!

    Cheers,
    Rez

    The stock speedometer (dreamometer) is innacurate, it typically reads high. Trust your GPS. 57.9 seems fine for your ski.

    Thanks Mike! I thought the same! GPS is more accurate! However, same GPS read few miles lower in my own car. While my car was driving about 75, gps was showing 71.

    It is mighty fast even at 58 in the ocean! I get scared at times!
