SVHO FZR results.
First of all wow what a great ski! When I brought the ski home in Feb I started ordering parts over the next couple months so i never got to ride ski stock as it was too cold outside but it hit 60 degrees but 40 degree water yesterday so i took her out with these mods. The acceleration is fantastic but I know I need the re flash to get this ski to 80 plus mph.
So far here is my list of upgrades
shims removed under ride plate
Riva rear exhaust
R&D cooling kit
R&D intake grate
So max speed ap says 72.4 was my best down river. Most of the time it was 70-71 mph. Seems a little slow compared to some on here for what I have done. I'm 185 and I had 1/3 tank after breaking it in and putting a couple of hours on it.
Any great mods I'm missing here?

You need to get the bypass done "contact Dean" but with your mods you will be on the limiter so you will need the stock prop pitched.
Once that is done expect to be anywhere from 73-74 easy with your weight.

Took mine out again today and in Stock form using my phones GPS it maxed at 69.7mph in light chop in the ICW with almost full tank and me at 175. I need to get it on a lake or river with some glass and see what I can get as a top speed prior to installing the mods.
I would bet that your 72mph is it sitting on the speed limiter set from the factory so without the bypass or ECU flash top speed will not change.

But he will be able to stay at that speed unlike now that it spikes at 72 then comes down to 68-69.

Thanks for the comments guys. I will be getting a r3 re flash this week so that will all be taken care of and should unleash the beast being held back. Can't wait to ride it again.

Please post result with flash because your mods are exact to what I will have this week minus the exhaust. I plan on ordering the flash next week once I get the fizzle and cooling kit installed. also are you going to do springs and retainers with R3? I want to go R3 but don't want to have to do springs just yet!!!

The old skis (2013 and prior) couldn't produce anywhere near the boost figures even if they turned the ski 10,000rpms. Totally different now with the SVHO. He said the R2 is the old R3.
I am now 100% sold on the R2 and will run it until I want more down the road....I will then replace the wheel, valve train and happily pay the $150 bucks (or whatever it is) to have them re-program to R3.
Hope this helps someone else on the fence about R2 vs R3.
Just fyi...my mods will be:
R&D Intake Grate & Seal kit
Riva Intake manifold ribbon delete
Riva Air Intake
Pump Tunnel Reinforcement
Tommy Jordan Exhaust mod (relatively free)

Hey guys, im really new to the jet ski world, so im a fzr sv owner, i would like to do mods but dont want to void the warranty, i heard that the vtech flash could be done and it could be flash to stock if i have to bring it to the dealer for any warranty issues. Can a r2 go back to stock.
