    250X top speed.

    I finished my break in this afternoon. I rode it a couple more hours past the 5 hour period just to be safe. After that, I finally got to open it up and see what kinda top speed it will do.
    Conditions:
    3/4 tank of gas
    Very light chop
    69 degrees and sunny
    no wind
    I am 6' and 190lbs
    66.3 MPH
    All readings are from a Garmin Etrex Vista CX GPS unit.
    This run was done after about 90 minutes of hard riding.
    After it cooled down for about 45 minutes, my buddy got on and did
    67.1 he is 5'8 and 170lbs.

    This ski has a great top end but it also really shines pulling out of a turn. Go in fast,plant the rear and gun it...... It pulls VERY hard coming out of a turn. What top speed have others run?

    I'm guessing in the upper 50's I did have ethanol free 93 octane in it. The lake I ride on is outside of the Richmond metro area and the gas stations around there are not requred to pump the 10% ethanol gas like they do in Richmond. Has anyone noticed any difference in the 2 blends of gas?

    Good numbers beagleman.

    just wanted to share my speed #s

    Test were done at approx 85F, almost glass conditions on a river. GPS readings were taken going up and then down river.

    64.x with 200# rider, 2 bars from full fuel, and 30# of gear in the bow storage.

    67.x same with 3 bars till empty.

    All stock right now with 5 hours on engine. Runs were done while engine was hot (been riding a few hours before top speed run) Max rpm was 8000 on the digital tach. I need to adjust the wheel for the speedo as top speed only read in the 40s.
