    FZR Boat Show Rumor...LMAO

    I was at a boat show yesterday while looking at the new 2014 Yamahas a overheard a salesman for a local dealer giving his sales pitch he was claiming with just one wire move the fzr & sho would run 70+ on GPS & for $600.00 it would run 80+ I confronted him afterwards and was talking to him about jims build he claimed it came right from the Yamaha rep...yet he could not tell me what wire or what the $600 was for.....If it was only that easy....lol

    ~Thought it would be fun to throw out there~

    Not too far off,
    it actually will run over 80 for $750...

    but it will need a few more items added for cooling...

    Part truths to this....
    the "one wire" thing comes from needing to move one wire on one of the ecu connectors in order to use an older ecu on a SVHO ski and have the immobilizer key function. This will not be necessary once a reflash for the actual SVHO ecu becomes available.

    also, with a $750 reflash a FZ SVHO will run 80 mph. This is proven fact. They were just a little off base with their $600 estimate

    Jim you have already determined it will also take a Intercooler for reliability during warmer temps correct ?

    Looking forward to see what the full potential of this ski will be...!!!

    Boat show guys typically just spout stuff out of their ass, they told my neighbor that his 250x had a limiter that could be reflashed to run over 80mph. Try and take it all with a grain of salt, the guys here will get you sorted though.

    Correct, the stock intercooler and engine cooling is not up to the task. We see a steady climb in both engine and air intake temps even in these cooler winter temps.
