    WOT but speedo only reads 33-41mph. '11 VXR

    Pretty much what the Thread Title says and my apologies if this is repetitive.. didn't find much after searching.

    Ski runs fine, but the speedo is only reading between 33-41mph. It's not an issue to me but I'm curious if anyone else out there has had this on their VXR/S.

    Pulled the ski and there's nothing out of place/wrong/stuck. Dropped it back in and the issue is still present.

    As DID mine, but it started after I left the beach yesterday. It's a non-issue but I wanted to see if any other riders had this.

    Our speedometers aren't very accurate anyways...

    Might just have some sand lodged in there. Just run it WOT for a while and I bet it will fix itself. Seems like my brother's VXR did that once after running aground.

    Mine did something similar but it was all over the place. It didnt move at first then showed a little over 50, then wouldnt go past 15 or so. When I got home I blew it out with an air gun thinking something was lodged in there and a bit of blanket weed came out. It's worked fine since.

    My FZS was reading about 20 mph and I was closer to 50... but was with trim up
