    70mph RXT on "free" mods.

    Ok so i got bored and gutted the stock air box. I didn't think it would make much difference but there was obviously a gain there. Lately i've had a run of bad luck and don't have the money to afford big dollar parts. So after my last ride and the numbers i saw it got me thinking. Is 70mph within my reach with some simple DIY cheap mods? Well Over to Brian's house i go with a 12 pack. Now i've got the RXT tore apart. OPAS gone (temporary block offs until my REs come in), pump out (i don't know why i just stare at it while thinking), air intake ripped apart again, all the stuff to fill the rideplate holes ready to go. So far on the list are the obvious suspects. Ride plate holes, get the oil level just right, and true intake grate to rideplate. So whats next? Just thinking out loud but what about the old 500 grit to the hull trick? Could the pump veins be cleaned up with a dremel for a gain? What about adding a MM to the stock prop? Since i love to wrench on my ski the cheap stuff will have to do until better times come my way. Hitting a legit repeatable 70mph with hardly any money spent would be pretty slick. Anyone have any good ideas?

    What have you done to get it to a GPS speed of 68? Most stock RXT's are around 64 MPH. Are you running a wedge? I here it really helps on the RXT. What intake are you running?

    I have my stock air box gutted. Thats it. Other than that and the metal SC washers and strainer the ski is bone stock. I know a wedge is good for some speed but i'm talkin about free mods like filling the rideplate holes. I might see if the throttle body could use some cleaning up.
