Thread: speed question

  1. #1

    speed question

    I just picked up a rxpx 255 2010 maybe 3 weeks ago with 40 hours on it. Only had a chance to ride it once. I max out at 66-67 mph on mild chop, and my buddies who has an 08 rxpx 255 could max out at 70mph stock. We raced and he blew me out of the water but he had a riva intake grate on at that time. I have sense ordered a r&d intake grate hoping to be able to hang with him. Just wondering is this normal performance for my seadoo? If not what should I check.

    Thanks

    How do the wear ring and impeller look?

    Also possible that since it was a bit choppy the riva grate helped your buddy stay hooked up better so he was able to achieve better speeds that day.

    I never checked them. This is my first seadoo and I don't know anything about them. Still in the learning process of where everything is. So ill ask some questions only a noob would ask. What and were is my wear ring located? Around the impeller? What are signs of damage? Just like cracks and notches?

    stock wear ring is white in color and its around the impeller. you will be looking for gouges, but the intake grate is probably the difference. tighten all hose clamps on the i/c pipes and throw on the r&d grate, then run again.

    As others have stated the intake will make some difference.
    What rpm's are you seeing at WOT?

    I hope the intake grate makes a difference. Checked the wear ring (from what i thought), looks to be fine so maybe the intake grate did make that much of a difference. He claims when he was stock he was hitting 70 mph though. Maybe his speedo was off. Would you guys say r&d is a better grate then the riva?
