    Got to 74.0 MPH Today

    Took my ski out earlier today - after adjusting the BOV.

    Decided to go to the local fresh-water "watering hole" once again to give my ski another fresh-water bath. Air temperature was right about 85*F (30*C) and water temperature was at 80*F (26*C).

    Did not see any Gators all day – even though they are indeed there, yet they are certainly secretive. Maybe they only like Yamaha’s???

    My last run netted me 71.2 MPH @ 7960 RPM with an entirely FULL tank of fuel. This was after flushing the intercooler, trimming the 2 rear air tubes, the addition of 1 additional air vent & tube, removal of the recall plate, installation of the R&D SCOM and the R&D 1* wedge as well as clean-up of the OEM intake grate and ride plate.

    For this weekend’s ride, I did not top-off the tank with fuel, as I would have done if I was heading out in the Gulf, so instead I started with probably ~ 7/8th of a tank of fuel.

    I made a short pass to chase off any Gators, and then back around again to make a full pass with the trim set on Neutral – which netted me 73.1 MPH.

    About 10 seconds after this pass, I received the F1 Warning Code, and headed back to the ramp, where I read SPSE (I assume Speed Sensor):

    I disconnected the battery and re-connected it and it was still displaying the F1 code.

    I then disconnected the battery again, popped the ECU Cover and battery cover and re-seated the SCOM Wire, and same deal, F1 Code.

    I then disconnected the battery again, removed the SCOM completely from the circuit, and installed the stock Brown wire in the connector and again, same deal, yet I remembered reading that to clear this code, it may be necessary to take it for a brief ride – which I decided to do – and hence 30 feet from the ramp, the code cleared.

    I rode for about an hour with the SCOM disconnected and decided to re-connect the SCOM – since my real intent was to try to obtain some “Aussie Speeds” with this thing.

    I headed back to the launch ramp, disconnected the battery, and re-connected the SCOM – making 100% certain the blue wire was inserted all the way in, and buttoned everything up.

    The code did not return with the SCOM re-connected, so I made a few more passes and each pass netted an improvement of about a tenth of a MPH.

    Part-II

    I continued to ride for the remainder of the day – then headed back to the launch ramp and removed the front bucket and make 1 last pass – which netted me the following:

    I know there's more in it - yet today - I did "squeeze" it "pretty hard". All of this was on fresh water, with the seats on, with air temp at ~ 84*F and water temp at ~ 80*F and the fuel for my last pass (74.0 MPH) made the buzzer go off – so I decided to call it a day.

    I think I remember reading that there is still like 5 gallons left when the fuel buzzer sounds?

    Anyways, I am thinking with cooler air and water temps, no rear seat, maybe the ECU cover removed and on salt water - this thing "could" do “Aussie Speeds” (75 MPH)???

    Maybe FIRE is correct – maybe GPS numbers read higher when you’re Jet-Ski’ing upside-down (Joking of course Mates)

    I am VERY pleased with this ski. It is a real stress reliever and is certainly a "blast" to have an afternoon of fun with.

    Thanks to all of the guys for all of your advice and recommendations.
