FYI, VXRs for Racers & Rec riders
Just passing this on fwiw, not an add...just trying to grow the sport.
Parker Powersports (aka Parker Yamaha) and Havasu Powersports are offering some brand new 2011 VXRs for $9599. This torquey (11:1 compression ratio) 1812cc normally aspirated Yamaha is pretty much ready to race in the new IJSBA R/A N/A Class right out of the box.., if that's what you'd like to do. Or you can just go give the $$ super charged lake racers a run for their money. And it barely sips 87 oct, even running buoys. A great way to start racing with an economical, reliable boat. The IJSBA Parker race, West Coast Nationals, is only 4 weeks away. Grab one and come join a great bunch of racers at The Blue Water Casino, Parker AZ, April 28/29. For first timers Parker is a friendly non-intimidating place to begin your carreer. Good Luck!

There is a 2011 brand new at a dealer in Tennessee for the same price.

Excellent!! Thanks for posting. Much more convenient for East coast folks.
Didn't mean to imply that this was the best deal out there, dunno. Just an effort to get more riders/racers and promote the IJSBA Parker Race. And imo $9599 seems like a reasonably fair asking price for a boat that requires next to nothing to be competitively race ready in USA (if that's what you want to do), while still being reliable and economical to operate/race.
If you're interested in racing a VXR, you can check w/ Trey and Cameron Frame re how well they liked their VXRs racing the IJSBA Tour.

Over the weekend, I heard of a local dealer moving their leftover 2011 VXRs at $9200.

Yes Andrew.., I rekon it is haha. Hope you are enjoying all your testing and achieving positive results.
Reason I mention "takes next to nothing" to make a VXR competitive in USA is that in our R/A N/A Class the 4 strokes must conform to IJSBA Stock Class Rules (the 2 strokes get to run Limited Class Rules). So..., plate, grate, sponsons, and a flame arrester/ribbon delete and yer VXR is good to go. ~$900 with GH discount. Then flash the ECU if you like.
Now on your side of the lake, the R/A N/A Class is an Open Class. This of course makes you have to spend a lot more time testing and a ton more $$ to be in the mix. I like our rules better.
Good luck, thx for sharing your results and opinions.

Where is a list of the mods the VXR can have per class? My daughter wants to race, but we need to make sure we haven't over modded her out of a class or something.
