    What's my next move on a stock 300....

    Ok, 2011 bone stock 300 ultra lx. It has 22 hours, bought it new as a leftover. Love the ski! It's my first ski. It's a beast.....pure adrenalin when you squeeze the throttle!

    I want to do some slight mods....ones that don't hurt reliability....but make it slightly faster. I am not looking for a flat water, must be glass to go fast ride. While I'm sure 85+ on ski in a flat lake is fun, its not my intent for this ski. I only ride in the gulf and some altantic.

    My readout shows 67mph with rpm 7260. Does that sound correct for a stock ski? I did some searching through old posts.....is there a consensus of the best override? or impeller? I'm not looking for much, just a few mphs!

    Also, please give me the laymans terms for the trim. If the gauge on screen is pointing down ski rides out of water, less control, but smoother ride in chop? Trim position up on gauge ski rides deeper in water, turns tighter, less speed?

    Thanks for the help!

    Brand scom? One better, more reliable? They sell riva on this site.

    Get the R&d I'd personally leave it stock if you want max reliability.

    Perfect, R&D sounds good! Thanks

    Do my stock rpm's sound right, 7260 on the stored mode screen?

    Stored mode does not work you have to look at the active data for real rpm.

    Maybe you are leaving us in favor of a 2014 Yammi like V-Man and Waz?

    Thanks for the help people! I ordered a scom a few days ago.

    Now......what's the thinking on an extra gas tank in the lower storage area? One of those flexible ones that hold 6-9 gallons?
