    Top speeds now?

    Been off the forums for a while,busy with other projects.Had a discussion with a few friends the other day about top jet ski speeds.I told them a few years ago they were in the 80's.What kind of "proven speeds" are guys running now,and what Hull/engine combo are they using?

    Lots of skis in the 90's. 80's is fairly common. Most of the people in the 90's have ditched the SC and went with turbos.

    Anything above 75 will cost ya .And at those speeds unless your on flat water.It gets a lil scary to say the least.

    One from Puerto Rico went over 100 2 years ago at the Hydro drags. There are others that can do it, everything has to be just right as far as water, wind etc. I personally know of one that can do it in my area. In fact I rode with him last weekend.
