    Kawasaki Ultra LX top speed

    Hi,

    I have a 2012 Ultra LX and the top speed is about 49. Does anyone else have this ski? This is a bit of disappointment for me. We bought the ski a month ago. What is everyone's opinion on this ski? Let me know.

    Thanks

    It is a great ski with one of the best engines on the market. That speed is low.
    How many hours? What were the rpms?

    That's what I thought.

    It has 132 hours and rpms sit at 7k

    Rpms are low. There is your speed. Something is going on with the ski.

    What should the RPMS be at?

    If it's like my 15f (same motor), 7300 or a bit more.

    I'll probably look into the spark plugs first. See if that helps. I know I changed spark plugs in my RXP and it helped a whole lot. At first I didn't think it was the problem since the plugs were only in there for 10 hours but it was. So hopefully this is the same for the ultra.

    hi bhiden
    also have a 2012 ultra lx, top speed about 50-53mph @ 7600 rpm.

    I changed spark plugs and changed oil in the Ultra LX. Still same problem. Hitting only 7k rpms. Took it to 2 different dealers and from the one that I bought it from and all they said were they think it runs fine. They are saying they don't believe anything is wrong with it. But hitting 7k rpms and having a hard time even getting up to 45mph doesn't seem right. Is there anything else that I would need to check to see what's happening?
