    First ride on GTX - question

    I just bought a 1996 GTX and took it out for the first time yesterday afternoon. RPM's were in the 6800 - 7000 range and top speed was about 48MPH. Is this pretty much normal? It felt (and sounded) like it should be going a little faster.... I did find that my intake grate is damaged (about half of it is gone) and was told that this probably affected the performace a little? I've ordered a new intake grate. I was told that the rave valves probably need repalcing/rebuilding? what do you guys think?

    6800 is about what stock rpms are. 52 is top speed on those models, i would check the impellar for any damage because you said you get 7000 rpms that might indicate a worn out wear ring or impellar blade damage.
