    just picked up my ultra 250

    i picked up a red ultra 250 on friday , i didnt drive it yet but i did take my friends for a ride last week

    so far i am dissapointed with the top speed numbers people are reporting on here , but i was happy at how well it ripped across a 1 foot chop and even a 2 foot chop

    hopfully someone comes out with a good prop and some pump mods to get this thing to run 70 + consistantly

    It does 70, just takes a few adjustments and a few hundred dollars.

    Can you identify those things to do to hit 70?

    Thahk you very much. If these things will get me 70mph, count me in. I will order my 250 very soon. I suppose the dealer can do this for me before I even get the ski?

    I highly doubt that Phil,
    other than the pump wedge install,
    there are hours and hours of labor involved in these "nearly free" mods.
    Your dealer would never do them unless maybe he was your brother and you were supplying the beer and a helping hand.
