Snoman, i always pull my battery when i winterize and at least put it on a shelf in the garage. I only charged it in the spring if it was needed. When i sold my GTX to JAG it still had the original battery in it and it was 3 years old with no problems.

no problem at all. you should always disconnect your batery if the ski sits for more than 1 month bc the DESS system will slowly drain the battery...PR...

Mine started out slow also i was only getting 65-66 stock on it.I still feel it should be a little faster..I havent gps ed it resently but i have the riva stage 1 and the plate holes filled ..i raced a stage 2 gpr 1300 and he hung with me no prob...So ether my ski is slow with the stage one or
there is alot of bs on here about stage 1 rivas doing 71-73mph

I don't belive it resets the ECU. I would check all of your little stuff. Check the oil level. if it's high then take some out down to just above the bottom bend on the dip stick. check your throttle cable for slack. Hold it wide open and try to turn the throttle body open further. If there is slack Jerry has a how to on tightening it. Mine had slack in it from the factory. My ski should easily do 67mph plus bone stock. I'm getting 66.6mph with about 15 seconds of wide open throttle.

Just make sure you keep a battery tender hooked up while the battery is out.
