    What Pitch to run with Mods 2013 FZR

    I have been running a repitched stock prop which I believe was around 12/17. While installing riva IC upgrade and Engine cooling kit I found a blade on my impeller was cracked. This may have something to do with my low top end. I know their are some threads on this but with the follow mods below what is the recommended pitch/impeller to run. Do not want to sacrifice any hole shot and maybe gain a little top end if possible.

    2013 FZR
    -Riva Intake
    -R3 Reflashed ECU (currently turning 8400rpms)
    -Riva Through hull exhaust
    -Intake manifold spacer
    -Riva IC Cooling kit
    -Riva Engine Cooling kit
    -Ribbon delete

    stock boost with reflash works well with the stock prop
    so a 13/20 in an aftermarket prop

    I found the reflash let it rev a bit more and made it cavitate with stock prop, I pitched up to 13/23 to stop cav then Lost top end speed, so re pitched again to 13/21 picked up more hole shot and top end.
    found when I moved on to a low boost wheel that's where I could really "feel" the gains and now have to re pitch again

    Low boost wheel needs a 13/23 for around 8,500 revs
