    My 2012 FXSHO has a worthless speedometer as well.

    All PWCs speedos are worthless. Best thing if you really want to know how fast you're going is a GPS. A GPS can burst your bubble though.

    On mine, it's the worst when I trim up. According to the dealer, that's "normal" because the speedo works off of some kind of wheel out back. From his description, something like the paddle wheel on a paddle boat. Only smaller.

    I never knew these skis even have speedometers...



    Any time we have a customer that tries to bring out a GPS they always get lost or have major issues...always...

    In fact, i pretty much make them keep it off or convince them to leave it on the docks...

    Seadoo actually has a GPS speedo and I only have seen it to be 1-2mph off at speeds above 70. So not all speedos are junk but the Yamaha hampster wheel is. Everyone knows a good GPS is the first thing to buy especially when modding. I just can't get over a 2014-2015 model $15,000+Yammi doesn't have a digital RPM read out and requires you to buy an aftermarket tach. Nothing against Yamaha but they need to def step it up.
