    RIVA Stage II ???

    HI, today I took my my 09 FZR with these mods:
    RIVA Performance Power Filter Kit
    RIVA E1 Supercharger Impeller
    RIVA OEM Intercooler Upgrade Kit
    RIVA Performance Blow-off Valve Kit
    RIVA Intake Manifold Upgrade Kit
    RIVA Fuel Pressure Regulator Kit
    RIVA Boost Clamp
    RIVA Free Flow Exhaust Kit
    RIVA Engine Cooling Upgrade Kit
    RIVA Engine Breather Upgrade Kit
    RIVA FZ Performance Ride Plate
    R&D FZ/FZR Aquavein Intake Grate
    R&D Pump Shoe Seal Kit
    WORX Sponsons
    SKAT 13/24

    My GPS only showed for the most 72MPH but the water a little choppy so I couldn't really get a top speed number. But for me with these mods I think atleast be at 75-78MPH because I have an aftermarket ride plate and intake grate. The RIVA stage II kit doesn't come with these extras and people are getting 75mph with just that and none of the added stuff that I have on my ski. The only thing was that I was getting a strong a gas fume but eventually got rid of that. What are some average stage II readings and why am I so slow ??????
    BTW I live in the Caribbean so my average temp is around 90*F and water temp and humidity I'm not so sure about.

    You have to dial in your prop, as Tommy recommend. Add a R2 to your setup with the right prop and you will be 80+ IMO

    But this is the prop that RIVA recommends for their stage 2 kit and is also what everyone else is using.

    But what about this can I add a 160 mm prop. I am a closed course rider so I am thinking about it for the good whole shot.

    You can't dial in a prop if you don't know your RPM. My guess is that you are on the limiter if you have a stock ECU. That and the stock IC will dramatically hold you back.

    No one can really tell you how fast is going to be there are too many factors!..it does make a huge difference tho!.. that stock IC is too restrictive and it heat soaks in a matter of minutes also are you runnning an ECU if so which type? a standalone ECU or a reflash?
