    What does it take to get 70mph on a VXR

    Hi guys, Im thinking of going to a VXR. What does it take to see a real 70mph out of one? I would not use the riva air intake because I need the front storage, so what would I need to do?

    There are several threads on the VXR/S containing the mods for more speed. The rideplate is the main component to gain speed.

    I will tell you this. If you are 160 lbs or less and the tank is half full and the engine is fully broken in (20 hours), you could very well hit 70 in the right conditions bone stock. It's that fast and that close . . . honest! JB

    I like the way this ski sounds so simple and fast for what it is, and of course the gas compared to the blown skis.

    Depends on where you live...

    I live in the humid/hot Southeast...Alabama. I have two VXRs and have done all the main mods to both (Riva Cold Air Intake, Riva Ribbon Delete, Riva Free Flow Exhaust 'non through hull type' R&D Scoop and every ride plate brand and spacer set up imaginable) I weigh 170 and have tried all times of day, all water conditions, all fuel tank capacities and the top speed I have ever gotten out of mine GPS is 69.6

    I got a Triton bass boat and in the winter I pick up about 4 MPH, so I am sure I can hit 70 in the next month or so.

    Sorry to rabble on, and hope this helps.
