    2011 Ultra 300x won't get over 60mph

    I just bought a none current 2011 ultra 300x with 0 hours. It's been two weeks and I'm at 5 hours. It's all stock and won't get over 60mph on smooth water.

    From what I've read everyone else is running about 67 mph. Any suggestions as to what might cause the lag. Should I take it back to the dealer ?

    Thanks.

    Are you using a GPS for speed?

    I don't have a gps at the moment so I'm just going by the speedo.

    2011 Ultra 300x won't get over 60mph

    I think there are definitely inconsistencies in the speedos of the two '12 skis I ride. At first I was thinking something was wrong with my blue ski, because I was having trouble indicating 67 and it was no problem on the green ski. Side by side, they are pretty identical with the green ski indicating 67 the blue ski is equally fast if not a hair faster while indicating less.

    It seems trim can also affect top speed and if I trim fully nose down then top speed may indicate in the 60-62 range depending on conditions.

    GPS speed is in the 67.x arena but I have yet to see the speedo on either ski indicate above 67.

    Yeah, most ski speedos are about as accurate as a politician when they speak
