    2013 VX deluxe power increase?

    I have a 2013 Yamaha VX deluxe, and i want to add a bit more power to it... Is there anything i can buy to add more power to it? Or any upgrades i should look for either better velocity or better handle?

    I had a great experience on my VX with a R&D intake grate and pump plug kit. Just sold the ski and the guy wants the stock grate, so it'll be over in classifieds sometime soon. I didn't really notice much with the R&D air filter. I think that to really benefit from that you need to do the ribbon delete mod (you can search the forum and find plenty of instructions on how to do that). Most people report that the exhaust mods don't really do anything but change the sound. If I had kept the ski, I'd have done the ribbon delete and left everything else alone.

    so dont worry about the intake grate? also ribbon delete is removing the plastic from inside the intake manifold?

    The intake grate was a nice upgrade in terms of rough water hookup and with the plug kit cavitation was significantly reduced. So it felt like more power since less was being wasted. I'd recommend it myself but don't expect a top speed increase!
