Thread: Holeshot?

    Holeshot?

    My FZr holeshot seems slower than other yamahas on the water. i talked to the people i raced and they all had stock machines. what is the "proper Technique" For getting the best holeshot possible. I am not talking about mods, but about how you should put the trim and distribute your weight?

    trim the nose full down lean over the front
    pull throtle to the bars
    the moment the ski pops out of the water and is flat put trim back to center and get your weight back in the center or towards the back
    look back and see how far back the others are

    If you really want to see how to launch a ski, search for a video of Nicholas Rius launching any of his skis. Pay close attention to what he does with his body weight. I've found his technique to work better than any other out there. If I do it correctly I only get one blip of the rev limiter instead of 3-4 when I do it incorrectly.

    i cannot seem to find a video of him actually getting a good holeshot. i found some speed runs and stand up jet ski stuff.

    This is the best I can find but it doesn't sound like he even punches the throttle until after he gets out of the shallow water a bit.

    my way works try it
    ski pops out with no bounce and only hits the limiter for a fraction of a second before blasting away
