    2012 SHO's/ HO's top speeds?

    What are you guys getting for top speeds, (out of box), on the new 2012 FX hulls? Both HO and SHO.

    Well I *thought* I was supposed to get 63mph on my 2012 FXHO but the most I can consistently get is 57mph according to my Garmin 431s...

    Where is your trim set at?
    You need to hold it for a while to let the GPS catch it up.

    Wow--- that '12 HO doesn't seem to be running right or your GPS isn't registering correctly.

    I'm getting a consistant 63 on GPS on my '10 FXHO-- only mods are KN filter, ribbon delete and I cut out the exhaust extension that goes down into the resonator-- i also have an Aquavein grate and PPK. I even hit 64 (once) on dead flat water. Don't think my mods added more than a mph or two on top end but they did seem to make a difference on acceleration.

    I thought the '12s are supposed to be a bit faster with the new hull---maybe do what Olomana suggests and let the GPS "catch up" and see if you truly are just hitting 57.

    So i have a 2012 FX Cruiser SHO and a 2012 VXR and the SHO is faster no matter who the rider is. Is this normal?

    What is the SHO getting for the top end? That is impressive though.

    stock vs stock, the SHO will eat the VXR especially in chop.

    I tried the trim at neutral and bow up... How long is a while? Lake Lanier gets a bit rough so its hard to keep it wide open for a while... It definitely feels quick out of the whole.... any tips are appreciated... I download my track log to look at so... thats how I know max speed.... this past weeken we had 12mph winds with 28mph gusts.
