    Pump wedge / plate angle / trim setting

    my question is how much would a pump wedge really benefit a yamaha ski with an already angled plate,stock 5degree nozzle,and stock trim adjustability ? most of the skis i see running wedges gain 1mph or so but dont have factory trim adjustability.i gained about the same speed as they did with a wedge just trimming the bow up a bit so im wondering if there really is any more speed to be found there.ive also heard you shouldnt run one with an angled plate ? currently my top speed setup on my sho cruiser is jims r&d plate r&d cone 89mm steering stock 83mm exit nozzles 1 click up.any input would be great.

    Hello hialeachiko, on my SHO and conversion i run my modded plate and Leo's wedge with great results. The only ski i do not recommend the wedge is on a FZR-FZS

    Leo tested it and it was on the bouncy side.

    Wish I read this earlier, I added the wedge and a modded plate to lose 3mph and gain a really bouncy ride... gonna take the wedge off now and see how that works out.

    top end bounce is going to cost you speed.my SHO i picked up a true .5mph but the difference in handling wasnt worth it for me so it came right off.
