    06 RXP, Bouncing in Calm water at top end

    Hey guys, modded 06 rxp. X Charger, 42's, Riva: intake, catch can and BOV. R&D Grate, through hull and reverse mod, gutted box. Full tank of 93 today and it was calm. At top speed I was not able to trim above neutral because I couldn't stop bouncing. My normal one up from middle was dropping my speeds by about 10mph because I couldn't stay hooked. Tried different riding positions but it just wanted to bounce at top end. I have Fizzle block offs I need to install so hoping that brings her back to normal plain. I was having to trim almost all the way down to stop the pogo stick. Any thoughts?

    I'm not sure why I have zero bouncing but my ski stays planted in glass - low chop. I also get no mph difference in seating positions. Mods and speeds listed below

    What I can't figure out is that it just started. In the chop if I come unhooked I back off the gas to avoid bouncing the limiter then roll back on and it gains speed missile-like. On the flat stuff I start bouncing at 60-65 until I really trim it down then start shaving speed. never done this before. I had to trim 1-2 above lowest setting to see the max 70 on dash and check gps. If I started increasing trim to try and lift the nose it started bouncing and slowing down quick. No pump wedge

    You need full blockoffs on there... Check for anything hanging underneith .. Make sure the grate is all flush but this sounds like what I had happen when I first started modded a few years back... The ski bouncing and rocking side to side.... I installed the riva pro series blockoffs and later installed REs and the issue was fixed... Goodluck

    Sounds like I need to install the Fizzle kit I have. No side to side just bouncing like I'm on a pogo stick

    Try an 08 RXPX over 80 even with pressure reliefs. I guarantee you when you get off your heart will be THUMPIN. I usually chug a cold one before I ride to calm my nerves a bit.

    I guess you have to be tossed at high speeds to get that feeling. I feel as my ski is slow and its actually doing 77 at wot runs. She stays planted but I guess if it was loose I'd be squeezing cheeks. I'd love to take a 90 mph plus ski out for a few passes to see if that makes me pucker. I did grow up racing mx /sx/ ss so maybes that's why I'm not scared. I thought I'd be scared with this ski when I bought it but I found myself looking for more

    not getting any walking but it's odd, I can carve a buoy and throw her around at speed and she takes it but in a straight line its just bounce and unhook, on repeat

    Rxps are dead calm in comparison to an older x ski. Ride a modded one when u get the chance. You will pucker lol
