    pretty sure the sponsons should be all the way up for top end..
    do you have a tachometer so you can see actual RPM'S?
    when i rejetted and balanced carbs i seem to be getting less rpm, but just looking at the tach, seems like im only achieving 7100.
    im getting 61.5mph

    (1) free flow you will lose speed with that set up.
    (2) oem sponsons down you will lose speed step them instead.
    (3) 14/20 is to much for that set up you should of got a 13/19
    (4) if you really want good gains go with the FF plate.

    Definitely do not use the stock grate at 70mph. But on the rideplate I think Jim can MOD it but I think the FF MOD is only for the r&d plate but I should let Jim answer that really.

    You are now realizing that the BS that Riva puts out regarding their stage I & II performance kits is bunk. Yes they are bolt on items you will need but not provide real speed gains .... until you do something to improve & step up RPMs & advance / change the timing. You can have the heads milled. This Jim, can do also ... about $100 includes shipping (quick turn around). You could install a 3* or 4* keyway this will advance the timing. Or even find a reflash for the ski. Until you increase the RPMs, the 14/20 prop is just to much to offer any real speed gain. Ask me, how I know? It is a must you get a good tach. Then after milling the heads & keyway you will need a fuel controller .. to help reg & feed more fuel to injectors. As you can see, there are mods that can really offer substantial more speed top end ... but it will take $$. I sit right @ 70 mph on my GPS. To get more I will be porting my cyl. & installing the VFIII reeds. It really is addictive LOL. Keep asking Jim & Rich, @ WFO they are experts ... just know it never really stops. Good Luck

    I vote for getting head milled and the FF plate. One of our families boats had same mods as yours, with 145 compression and a angle milled stock plate and was just a shade over 70. You have about all the right stuff, study threads about rideplate angle and such and you should be able to get there with what you have and a couple of additions.

    ok threw on my 13/19 prop yesterday and went for a ride. 61mph on the candoo gps system, even with the ff plate i dont see this ski getting anywhere near 70mph. mods are as follows.

    gp1200r motor 80hrs 125psi accross the board

    solas 13/19 impeller
    riva flame arrestors at osidebils carb recs.
    riva ride plate
    riva intake grate
    r&d nozzle
    D plate
    *new* oem reeds

    im guessing getting my head milled and having jim modify the ride plate is the only way to get some more umffff out of her.

    what needs to be done once the heads get milled??? do i have to change jetting in the carbs or just raise the fuel delivery? do i need to run different fuel?

    Whats NEXT!
