    2005 ultra 150 top speed?

    I'm looking at a stock 2005 ultra 150. I heard that the newer ones are a little slower than the older ones. If they are what is the top speed of the 2005?

    Thanks!

    60-63.. the only reason you hear they are slower is because the 99 used a differeny ignition which ran hottet plugs. 99 had 150hp 2000-2005 145hp..

    ultra

    That's pretty much what I've heard too. I've GPS'd my stock 99' at 67.3.

    Wow, that is alot of speed difference with just 5 extra horsepower on the 99. Sounds like you had a really good running ultra.

    05 1300? I thought the ultras were 1200.

    speed

    Hmmm, well. I'm pretty sure you can get 64+ out of a stock 2000-2005, but I've never had one so I can't say for sure. And, my 67+ is on glass with less than a 1/4 tank of fuel, and I weigh around 180. After adding the shredmaster I saw no gains in speed, maybe even a loss, but worth it, the handling is much better.

    Those skiis can gain a bit just from properly fitting the impelller and ride plate. I found that shimming and caulking the ride plate as well as making sure the impeller is fit as good as possible gained about 1 mph. That will vary from one ski to the next of course.

    I gpsed my 01 with shredmaster, r&d intake and beach house sponsons , skate track impeller which was blue printed with a fresh set of bearings at about 63-64 mph

    This was fresh water though, running in salt will yield higher speeds
