Getting the most out of a bone stock RXP-X 260
We all know that the stock RXP-X 260 ECU has a rev limiter set to 8050, its speed is limited to 67-68, and it pulls throttle once it gets up to WOT speed.
But some P-X's are just a bit faster than others and some don't lose as much speed in turns as others. What sort of slight tweaks have people experimented with, and what sort of gains have been seen.
Are people still filling ride plate and intake holes with Epoxy stick?
Obviously motor and pump shoe alignment are huge, anything else?

Prop. Make sure all your blades are trued up.

Ride plate is a big one but that's not really a minor tweak. I did verify that the oem sponsons do not scrub top speed at all in the fully down position.
You could look at your stock ride plate and see how the angle of it compares to your hull and shim it if needed. I've seen several with a downward angle driving the bow down. If this is your case make it level with the hull and you should see and feel a gain.
The stock trim tabs have been known to cause a pull at high speed also. Tweaking those would help also

Can't hurt to fill the holes on the plate, grate and tabs. Align the ride plate. Probably about all you can do. Like troy said too, Tru up the prop

Basically a tape measure and a level. The more rise the rear of the rideplate has the more boat out of the water. I wonder if your plate has a downward angle. Both my stock skis did. You would either need to grind down the rear mounting points or shim the front ones. Jim does a closed loop mod that helps also. He trues the mounting surfaces. Dont know if that is legal though. It would be hard to catch even if it was. Stick a 4 foot level on the bottom glass on your hull and extend it past the plate, the angle will be really obvious if it's not level.

Variations in cam timing is my guess
