Top Speed 65 per Kawasaki"As for peak speed, well, Kawasaki representatives
tells us that with a full tank of gas
and an average-sized rider of about 190
pounds, the craft will have a peak of about
Look at page 5 of the review: http://www.kawasaki.com/Content/pdfs/awardsReviews/PWI_JETSKI_ULTRA_Feature.pdf
And it was supposed to be fast!
I guess if Hummer made a Jet Ski this would be it!

Do you believe everything you read from Kawasaki.
Maybe you didnt believe the guys here who have been riding it.
Oh well you read your articles, we are going riding.

68.8 is the fastest so far.
Cant tell if ya have a negative deminor about this......
Maybe you should sit back and read more of whats going on instead of jumping onto a negative band wagon. Just a thought.
Regardless this thing is going to be alot of fun and you will see that it is quite capable of doing 75 mph for cheap.

That same article says the rider GPS'd it at 66.5 with a full tank. Thats pretty damn good for a BIG boat...

I talked to my dealer about mods and top speed today. He knows some of the guys at Kawasaki. They told him that the pre-production skis were running in the mid 70s but the Coast Guard said "no" so they had to "detune" them a little.
I asked about a pulley swap while I was there. He said that it isn't a quick/easy thing to do. If the belt brakes, the book calls for just over 5 hours to replace it. So... a pulley swap will be alot of work. Taking the supercharger off and reinstalling is about 6.2 hours.
