    This Sound Right?

    Finally got to take my new toy out over the long weekend. Stock 2005 RXP. With a full tank of gas and myself (230 lbs) in mild chop, I was seeing 8200 RPM and 66 MPH (on the speedo, not GPS). I was surprised that my wife's Kawasaki STX-12F was quicker off the line, but once I got up to speed I blew past hers. This could also be due to my lack of knowing how to correctly use the VTS still. But do my top end numbers sound right?

    In mild chop, I'd say they look good...

    So I took my phone out with me over the weekend and used a GPS app (GPS Essentials). The water was choppy, but I was able to run wide open for spurts. According to my GPS my top speed was 54.1. I also ran it against the wifes Kawasaki again the other day and although faster, I don't blow it away like I thought I would with this ski. I'm getting 8200RPMs all day, shouldn't my top speed be a lot faster?

    Have you checked the condition of the wear ring and the impeller ?

    8200 is the limiter. sounds like you might need a wear ring

    The 12F should be no where close to the RXP.

    The 15F will holsehot a good RXP but its over by 20mph

    Your waaay on the limiter. Need to add some pitch or replace the prop. Ski should run close to 70 mph in perfect conditions.
