    Thumbs up I'm back with a new ski 2013 FX-HO.

    I just ordered a new 2013 Yamaha FX-HO-NA Crimson Red Metallic. I've decided to move away from the super high performance FZS and get into the new FX-HO since I more often find myself going on long rides and I really miss the torque and the fuel efficiency of the NA motor on my VXR. The ski will ship the first week in October and Riva will install sort of a stage 1 kit. They will be installing the Riva water box, Riva rear exhaust, Riva SS grate, Riva intake manifold upgrade, Riva engine breather kit and Riva power filter kit. Let's see what this poppy can do, Julio...

    I buy my skies from Riva, they will get the first bash the first week of october. I don't ask for price, I have an open account and I just order as needed. This ski should be fun, Julio...

    more like 66-68. It is a normally aspirated engine, Julio...

    Thank you!!! I think it will be a really nice balance between the torque from the VXR and the stability of my first Yamaha (06 FX-HO) or better. I looked at it today up close and the hull looks very promising for rough watter, Julio...

    That's going to be perfect for long cruises,
    congrats I'm glad to see you didn't go the other way...
