    Quiet before the 250 Storm.

    Seems all has quieted down but when Im on the phone its all the buzz.

    More and more people are riding this machine and swearing that the article stating 66.5 is being supper conservative. 4 different people have sworn to the 68 to 69. 1/4 tank shifting wieght away from steering. Ive asked over and over if they are sure. Even asked why the article makes claims that Kawi is stating 65. Always the answer is. " Kawi makes no guarentees on accuarate speed" Testing conditions are always worse case senerios.
    Man I hope these guys are not BS'ing but tend to believe then because they already have em.

    Cant wait to see what happens when this hurricane hits the market. Its either going to rip apart some title or be a over hipped tropical storm. Regardless its a storm comming.

    Yeah, I noticed that the Ultra forum has run out of stuff to say!

    What was interesting to me is that Kerry is breaking 92mph with his
    2 stroke Yamaha's. I also noted he wasn't wearing a helmet on those runs!

    Can you imagine what's going to happen when all of you speed demons get your hands on a base 250hp machine?? I have to chuckle when I see
    the moaning that this ski weighs 920 some pounds, what a pig! Let's see
    250 hp, direct jet drive (no drive train loss), 11' long, 4' wide....... that's
    a rocket ship waiting to take off!

    To put it in perspective, I had a 30' SeaRay boat with 660 hp in two 350cu V8's, 13,000 pounds, 12' wide beam, straight inboard props and I could get 35mph on a good day.......

    One person works for Kawi.

    These two boat belong to Kanimora. What met up with him over at JetTrim. These are the boats that Joe and him are tinkering with. Funny how well he speaks english till you start asking about the mods and horse power.

    Kawi has about 20 units out on display and for test rides.

    Riva has also sworn by the numbers they claimed. The guys that did ride from Riva know how to get a boat going.

    So there is two for you. Cant really quote the other two they asked me to leave em out of it till it hits the market.

    Hydro you were all over the WF06. Bet ya didnt find those two. Hidden off for test riding for the Big Dawgs. After Market reps met for sizing, specs and CADS. Seems alot is in the pot cooking right now.

    those things should be called "ships".. I think once someone gets them dialed in and starts modding them they will turn out to be very competitive in offshore or Maybe even supercourse..Although they might be slightly to big for supercourse

    Riva said 68 to 69 from day one.

    It has got to be that fast or it will get smoked by an Rxp.

    Four strokes take longer to break in than a two stroke.

    I have over 200 hrs next to an Rxp and If I remember right it picked up over a mile per hour at 18 hrs.

    Don't you have a GTX? It's about the same size.
