    Getting close to VTEC flash...

    With riding season right on our doorstep (for the Canadians) its time for me to start looking at mods for this season. I have plans to go with the stage 1 flash on my 2011 RXT X 260. I have already done the R&D grate, 4" Fizzle intake, catch can, filled the ride plate holes and purchased a 15/22R solas prop and sent it to Erik for a repitch to 12.5/21. It ran really good last year with those mods and saw speeds of 74 on the speedo (haven't gps'd yet) and hit max revs at 7780. Couldn't get any more out of it. So plans are in the works to get the flash and raise the rpm limit to the 8350. I will leave the prop at the 12.5/21 and was hoping with all of the knowledge on here, someone could tell me what to expect out of it this year ie: is the prop going to shoot me to the redline or not. On a side note, has anyone done the comparison of running 93 octane vs 91? I have discussed with some members and they say to run the 91, I will get better results than putting the MORE EXPENSIVE 93...


    Thanks for all your help and good riding this season.


    Praying for 77 lol

    You guys might want to check out the Ride for Dad on Big Rideau Lake July 7th. You can search it on Facebook or look in the search bar here on Greenhulk. Great ride for a great cause. Should be a really good turnout this year, the word is spreading fast.

    All I know is the last time I was riding up in the Kawartha's (Lovesick Lake) we whacked a prop to bit on our boat! lol

    i have riva stage 1 .rp 12.5/19 from eric to get rpm up . gonna try a new grate this year and vtech reflash.
    thing still pulls to the right. best i could get was 72.5 on gps but missing rpm 's and nose cone spun off.
    dont see how u could get to 77 without upping boost.
