Why So Slow...
I have this posted in my other post in the open discussion, but figured I wold post here too. Not getting many views there...
So I now got 12 hours on my new 2011 RXT 260. Had the dealer do the 10 hour service, all is good. Checked oil, it is @ 3/4. Checked all hoses, they are all on good and tight.
I did a few speed passes last night and here are my max's: 6800 rpm and 56 MPH. Air temp was 74* and water temp was 66*. Before the 10 hour service max I was able to get it to go 60 mph but just barely. Last night was pretty windy and had a slight chop. I am at 8000 feet elevation, so what pitched impeller do I need or should I be seeing better results than this without a different impeller?

You just need to repitch what you have or pick up a depitched 15/20

Thanks Ocman. I will read through the re-pitching thread.

Been searching and have yet to find a 2011 service manual? Any one know where I can get one or just go through my local dealer?

That isnt a prop problem something else is wrong! check supercharger slip, oil filter, there has to be something wrong with the ski

60 mph on a 260? is that GPS or speedo? and the speeds are dropping? sounds like more than just a prop pitch problem. those speeds are low for a 215.

If my caluclations are correct the elevation alone will kill more than 20% of his power so he's not far off from that.
