    '06 GTX215 faster then my '12 GTR215 on smooth water?

    My buddy just bought a 2006 GTX 215. I see his speedo is not gps, but I saw 68 on his speedo when I rode it (full fuel etc). I had my 2012 GTR out once this season for a quick spin, and saw 65 only (10 hrs), but had seen 67 and a 68 here and there. Will the "winterization/fogging" and older fuel cost me a few MPH on my 1st time out? And, is the 2006 speedo accurate? Is that older hull lighter/faster then my GTR? Thanks in advance. PS we have not ridden together, but will be on Tues (80 deg here in WI).

    Very little chance his speedo is correct.. I find mine 4-5 mph off on a regular basis.. Mostly slower then what I'm actually going..

    My 06 gtx 215 topped out at 67.9 stock with an intake grate

    Older doos will say 5-7 mph faster than they are really doing.
    If it says 68 its probably doing 63.
    Get a gps and check it for yourself.
    Yes old fuel will kill the mph.
    Pump n dump your old fuel and run some Injector cleaner then change your plugs.

    I use Lucas fuel Injector / upper cylinder lubricant and I buy the big bottle at Walmart for @ 8$.
    I use it in my cars also.
    Great stuff!!!
    If your Injectors plug on a ski you can toast a cylinder quick..

    OK. I didn't know if BRP made something for this.

    Plugs are going in for sure tomorrow.

    Run old fuel out 1st or pump n dump it.
    If you run old fuel with new plugs it can waist the new plugs.
