    2009 FX SHO - New Yammie guy looking for some pointers.

    Just picked up an 09 FX SHO. My 1st 4-stroke. I've been converted. I've had plenty of skis over the years but all 2smokes. I didn't want to spend this much but the yammy just doesn't get bashed. I was really after a RXP or X, then the Ultra 250...THEN the SHO. Only reason, the SHO was always way more money than the other two.

    Anywho, ran her today, I do believe all stock. Not sure about grate?

    Problem, my good buddy just picked up his '14 SVHO Cruiser today.. we ran them twice real quick up to 70, they where basically side by side. I'm sure his will loosen up and gain some but he won't touch it mod wise. I will.


    What are some good 1st and safe mods that I can do to my 09? Not sure if a grate change will give me a few mph or what mods will

    Thx for any pointers..

    interesting actually pretty suprised you guys were side by side considering the SVHO has about 40hp over the previous model.follow rickwhites suggestions as they are good ones and should have you hitting about 74mph @ 8300rpm

    I watched a youtube, that's certainly work in my wheelhouse. I really hate to wrench on this thing but that looked pretty easy considering the heft of parts that get pulled. That plug is just ridiculous looking. is it just a backfire screen and is it really with it?


    when you say riva exhaust, to what extent? full waterbox etc....hell, I dunno.

    ok, see if I got this right.

    1. FF exhaust, it's just that 1 pipe for the rear? $200
    2. Intake, any different mods preferred? like filter only or do the $200 elbow and filter? what about that 4" Jetdraft with the kanaflex?
    3..Breather kit, no need on 2009?
    4..R&D grate? is there a specific one?
    5..reflash for R2-3 $650
    6..intake sleeve when removing the ribbon. $30
