Tasetfully Modified 2014 Yamaha FZS w/ Mods Won't Exceed 70mph?
2014 Yamaha FZS WaveRunner -Date Of Purchase 10/25/2014
When i first got the ski my first purchase was the power filter kit from Riva. While riding with just that installed i was able to reach 71mph. Since than i have put a lot more money into the machine and can not seem to get it over 70mph.... I guess you can say I'm not happy. I basically have everything that the Riva stage 1 kit has except the Solas impeller, I don't want to keep dumping money into this thing for little to no gains, I even spent the money on the ride plate which i feel was a complete waste.
Listed below is exactly everything i have.
Thoughts? What am i doing wrong? What am i missing?
After installing the SCOM i didn't notice much of a difference, it just seems louder i guess.

Do you see them drop down after staying wot for a while? Either that or your on the limiter with those mods i think youd need to pitch your prop. What RPM's are you seeing? Also that rideplate is terrible keep your stock one.

Check out the the Yamaha 4-stoke section of the forum. A lot of your questions can likely be answered there with a little searching.
Also I am confused as to why you have in your original picutre the VXR air filter box on your FZR. Did you modifiy it or something? That front compartment is relatively sealed.... you're probably losing performance running that compared to the correct Riva powerfilter for the FZR which has the filter inside the hull right by the vent tubes.
Are you using a GPS? Check out my signature... I have stage 1 mods, somewhat similar to yours on a 2009 FZR and run 73+ all day.

Probably on the limiter pitch the impeller

If you pitch the prop it would bring the Rpm down....Jims Performance would do it for you.
