VF3 Reeds yielded no RPM gain for me
First things first, a list of my mods.
2000 GP1200R 200 hours, no rebuilds of anything
Jim's FF plate
150 PSI head
IR carb mod
IR nujet 6.5 (12.5/18.5 pitch)
VF3 reeds (removed pro-tec stuffers)
95 gram spring
choke plates removed
accel pump removed
7/8 on lows
1 1/4 on highs
200 feet elevation
Now, it was only recently that I added Jims FF mods on my R&D plate, Advent T3 and 800 grate. Those 3 mods took me from 69.7ish @ 7160 to 74.1 @ 7260 RPM.
Now for the problem. The 74.1 mph @ 7260 RPM was my baseline before the VF3 install. I installed the reeds per instructions, even took out the white stuffers as I had 2 well known tuners tell me to. My speeds stayed the same and rpms MAY have increased 10-20 if that.
So something else has to be wrong with my ski because these reeds should be showing more gains, right?
I talked to Billie and we confirmed my PV and PV motor are adjusted and working correctly. I adjusted my throttle cable to spec. Everything is just like when I ran my best of 74.1 except I removed my pro-tec stuffers and added VF3 reeds. I'm seeing zero gains though.
So does anybody have any idea what could be wrong? My advent is set for 7500 RPM. Is my jetting or t-handle settings off?
I'm stumped, I have gone over everything. Ski seems to be running fine and even with the 1200 grate the ski is making enough power to burn my prop from a 5 mph roll like crazy...
One thing that needs to be addressed is my prop, the nujet I have now is way too small for the power im making and the gap between the liner is way too big. But I wouldn't think this would keep me from turning over 7300 RPM like i should be.
Help me out guys!!

Either VF3 just don't work on my boat or something is keeping me from turning higher RPM's.
It's really upsetting because after the FF plate and Advent my boat was hauling ass. With the VF3's and then a 05 pump with a properly pitched DynaFly, 76 seemed to be in my future. Now im stuck at 74 mph, and I don't want to upgrade to the 05 pump and DynaFly until I figure out what the hell is going on. Maybe it's time to leave the stock bore behind and go BB ported. There is no replacement for displacement. My top and bottom need to be rebuilt anyway....

Your ignition timing could be holding you back as most curves start dropping off around 7250. You need more prop to get down to 7150.

I have always felt, the only way to compare results from different days is to record the air density on each day
that said, my experience is it woud be rare to see a 70-80 rpm swing from one day to another with similar weather - though I have seen a 30-40 rpm swing from day to day even thought the temp was the same.

I had a simular setup but had the 14-20 in the old style pump. It was repitched and running 7160-7180. When I added the VF3s it jumped to 7250-7260. Since then I have gone to the newer pump and DF. The unported 1200 seems to be rpm limited to sub 7300 rpms or at least in my case.
Which D-plate are you using and what Advent curve?
