    I think I got a slow one.

    I have finally broken in my 12 px 260 and I think i got a slow one. 8000 Rpm Speedo says 65....... Is that what everyone is seeing? I did have an almost full tank when making these runs. I am also thinking it is showing about 2 mph over the GPS.

    Check it with a gps. At 8000 you should be around 68.

    What kind of water are you riding? And what setting do you have your VTS set at? Mine is stock and does 68-69 MPH.

    I was riding on smooth river water. VTS all the way up. I will bring my GPS next time. I forgot it last week. I was certain that the Speedo would always be over.

    You gotta find that sweet spot with the trim. Every ski is different. Try changing your riding position as well. Mine personally is 1 notch above center.

    Mine is fastest all the way up. True that they are all different.
