    new here from NJ

    just bought a 2014 Rxp x 260 off the lot, anxiously awaiting upon its arrival next week! i plan to mod it tastefully and even though i work on my own cars id rather have a shop do the upgrades or at the very least tune it since all the talk about RIVAs ecu's being hard to dial in makes me uneasy. i live in central NJ so anyone who can chime in on some good spots to go out and ride please do, love to meet some riding buddies also since i only know a few people with jetskis, mainly females which im not too mad about . once i get the ski im thinking of hydrodipping some pieces on it. needless to say im excited to have finally bought my first jetski and though i may be new to performance skis im no stranger to big horsepower machines

    Nice choice! Best decision you ever made !

    About the Riva Athena ECU I spoke with a member who has it and it runs perfectly. He figured out all the quirks and dialed it in. You need to know ALL the in an outs of the system to tune it good. That being said a better option is V-Tech stock ECU re flashing. This keep everything like OEM but with so much more!

    if you plan on carrying out a lot of upgrades you can't beat the motec m130 plug and play ECU. Everyone I know that owe one love it. The support is out of this world too.

    Awesome choice. Bad ass ski for sure. There are a bunch of us here from central NJ and most of done pretty much exactly what you are going to with that 4tec motor. Be careful the speed is addicting.

    I am not sure how far away Lacey Powersports is but i know a few guys that have them do all their tuning and they are extremely happy.

    yea from what ive read on the athena ive seen some success stories but getting there seemed to be a pita and im not very "tuner savvy" i can wrench all day but i just havent expanded my knowledge yet to the ecu's

    im saying i am going to hang stockish for a while but when it comes to my cars ive said it a million times and it never seems to sustain, my 560/560 rwhp/rwtq cadillac is proof enough lol

    Yup, i hear you. I lived in Freehold for a while. You are pretty much west of some of the ECP guys. We go out on the Manasquan river/Ocean and in the Barnegat bay.

    Will be cool to add another guy for some rides!

    sounds good, like i said once the weather starts to go in the complete opposite direction its going now, i look forward to meeting some of you guys and checkin out all your skis, ive never really seen or heard any modded skis up close so this is like a whole new world that im walking into ready to hand out cash for go fast parts
