First ride with Riva XX
Hey guys, not sure if any of youse have been following my posts, but on my first outing i had a problem with a bailer tube coming off. Having now sorted that i went out on the ski again this morning.
I was riding in some pretty heavy chop, so was definately not able to do any speed runs, or hold WOT for long at all really. However i can safely say that the acceleration is greatly improved over stock!! Very hard to keep the grin off my face
There were a few moments that the ski felt like it bogged down, not sure if it was just coming unhooked through the chop or not...
Im going up to the river next weekend so should be able to get a few good top speed runs in, im thinking 80 will be pushing it, but definately hoping for high 70's
Couldnt be happier with the upgrades, Thanks to Jerry for the advice and delivering the parts nice and quickly !!

No, at this moment I don't have a boost gauge, nor have I been able to turn 8100 rpms. If I were dangerously lean and/or running out of fuel, wouldn't it be consistent?? I only noticed it a couple of times. Will see how it goes on calm water. But I suppose it would be wise to monitor the AFR..

The few times that I did get to go WOT on smooth water (in the marina) it felt fine. I Will get an lc1 and put it in as soon as possible. But for the time being I will pull the plugs and take a look. I shall upload some pics later.
