Speedo only reads 54-56mph...
Wanted to ask why my ride would only read 54-56 mph WITH OR WITHOUT my girlfriend on the back...
I'm showing 7,800 rpms and that with or without a full tank of gas... Had a guy on a Seadoo (lightly modded) fly paste me on calm water.
(someone recommended lubing the speed wheel, still need to try that BUT my buddy on his 150 was riding next to me and he was reading the same speed up to 49mph where he was pretty much topping his out)

I would like to add that the dealer DID take out oil before I picked it up because another customer made them aware of the factory oil recommendation being too much...

Get a gps first so you know where you stand. Then if the speedo is reading slow try loosening the wheel assm. and moving it down alittle.

there have been a few threads on this, but I had the same problem. 56mph....I loosened the 2 screws, pulled the complete unit down a 1/16 and retightened. Now I hit 70 after a good run, it's a lie-o-meter anyways, you do feel better for the coin we all spent...and even though it says 56, that didnt work with me either, or the passengers on my ski saying this thing is slow, I thought it was faster... .

How much for a run on the mill GPS (something basic)?
