FZR it is... Get me to 75
Decided to sell the GPR. It is a great ski, but it isn't very family friendly. Look for it in the for sale section this week if you are interested in a super clean and fast 2 stroke.
I plan on getting a 2009 or 2011 (don't fancy red) FZR. The gpr is a 76+ ski and has seen 78 mph. Gets there in a hurry too...
What does it take to get the fzr to 75mph and just as quick or quicker?
I was thinking that an intake, free flow, and "speed" oriented ride plate would knock down 70mph...

R3, Fizzle IC, and a ET Lowboost wheel, prop'd for 8400rpm. Although that would probably get you 80mph

Don't forget a BOV to help that clutch live longer! My ski with a Jims VX plate, Riva intake, Rrated freeflow, air mods, sealed grate and R3 ecu went 73.4 in hot, choppy conditions. If I was you and wanted a nice combo you could grow with I would do:
- Riva or homemade intake
- R&D ribbon delete (cheaper AND nicer)
- HKS BOV
- R&D R3 reflash (not really necessary at first but its nice not to have to worry about the rev and boost limiters!)
- Tommy Jordan method freeflow
- Jims VX plate (or start with a stock VX and you can get it modded later)
- R&D intake grate sealed (either a PPK or seal with resin, my next one will have resin for sure!)
- air mods (remove foams, drill some holes)
- New prop (some people prefer Solas while others like the Skats)
Should get you in the 74-75 range and you can then easily upgrade to a wheel and fizzle ic and be near 80!

Reflash and a low boost wheel, paired with the mods you list, and a tweak of the stock prop should get you to 75 in cooler weather. You'll experience heat soak in the summer, so a aftermarket IC like the fizzle unit, will help with consistency on speed runs. You may find that after adding those mods, you'll want to go to an aftermarket prop.

Thanks for the advice guys. Hopefully I can get the gpr moved and find a fzr in the condition I like. Should be fun
What type of bov do y'all like? Tial 50mm bov? Turbo smart?

Come on down to Florida or ship it to Jim's Performance. He gets them in from all over the world. He can get you to your goal cheaply and reliably. He is a expert at Yamaha supercharged engines. When he is done...we'll go for some nice rides to test it out.

add a little here a little there or do it all at once. good advice is to ask the pro's with exper. that have it tested. I found the guys at R&D have got it down for the package your looking for. I've gone 80.3 GPS with a 1/2 tank of gas and 80lb passanger. good luck and have fun.
