    2012 VXR wont reach top end

    My VXR with 12 hours wont go faster than 52mph. Two weeks ago it hit 67mph. Engine runs smoothly, accelerates great but won't reach top end? I checked the wheel by the grate, turns freely and no obstructions were found at grate or nozzle?

    Are you using the Dream-o-Meter to get your speed?

    Is it actually going slower or is it just the speedo?

    Check prop/pump area. Check for fishing lines.

    Check out the distance between the prop and liner/wear ring.
