    Yes i was sitting as far back as i could, but still sitting. On those short runs we both got the same 66mph (gps)
    top speed.

    I have 70,2mph in the top speed memory of my garmin gpsmap 620.
    It's from the first owner, i bought the vxs last winter and have't been able to get anywhere near those speeds.
    I'm doing 66-67mph but i have only driven the vxs for 10 hours. I need to learn how to get the best out of the ski.
    I used to have Kawasaki Ultra 250x and that's just so big and heavy , totally different to drive to the vxs.
    Still learning =)

    I own both and with the mods listed in my signature for the vxs when my fz was still almost stock except for air intake the vx was a mile and hour faster once the limiter on the fz kicked in.

    I had so much trouble whit my previous kawasaki 250x that i'm just enjoying this easy maintenance and trouble free Yamaha =)
    It's enough for me that i can keep up whit my friends on their more powerfull skis.
    At least for now

    Coming from supercharged SeaDoo's, I completely understand. But unlike other skis, the VXR can be modded and still retain essentially stock reliability. There are several people on here with their VXRs running in the low 70's that have well over a hundred hours on their skis. I've got two as a matter of fact, that are about to roll over 100 hours soon.

    Just doing a simple ribbon delete + air intake can add the edge you need to pass your friend's stock FZR.

    Me personally, I like this setup:

    V-Tech VXR ECU Reflash
    Skat 13/16 prop
    Riva intake grate
    Ribbon delete / DIY air intake
    Remove stock ride plate spacers and add two fender washers to the rear bolts

    That setup makes for a ski that will pull any stock ski out of the hole (minus the new SHVO's likely) and have a few MPH on them at the top end. The trade off for that acceleration is having to run 93 gas though, due to the ECU reflash.

    Others have done similar setups without ECU's and get into the 70's as well, just not with the same level of acceleration.

    Thanks, but at least for this summer i'm going to keep the ski stock.
    I don't have too much time or money to upgrade the ski at the moment.
    We just had our second son born and i'm getting ready for world championships with our offshore race boat.
    So alot to do =)
