Can't find the speed on my 03 gp1300r
I finnally got a gps and a tiny tach to get my speeds and rpms. I am currently running 6900 rpm at only 65.2 mph. I have the 05 pump, 14/20 dynafly, 87 nozzle, riva trim tabs, stepped sponsons, ff plate adjusted to around 1.1 inches, tunnel reinforced, efi controller, 1200 grate, pump shoe sealed that is a nickel lower than hull, jetworks mod, and I removed all the intake tubing to stock intake manifold, and don't have the d-plate but one with a round hole in the center. I think my ski should be around running 70 but it isn't even close. I didn't have a gps before I went to the ff plate, only had a riva plate, but my speedometer went from 72 to 79 when I changed that out so I am pretty sure I gained some speed with that mod. My only guesses where my speed is going is 1) pump bearings are too tight, as by hand I can only spin the pump 1/4 turn 2) need to get a riva d-plate 3) put stock trim tabs back on 4) unstep sponsons but it bounces like crazy if I put them in the top postion. I also have a riva head to put onto my ski, but haven't because I want to find the speed before I mod the engine. Thanks Marcus

Yea, the impeller might be too tall. I was in your same spot early in the season. I then added VF3's and I went from 68 mph to 72 mph. Also you said a nickle lower on the pump shoe? It should be up in the hull a nickle.
And I see you have a stock plate, GET IT MODDED!

Hello Marcus, RPM'S way to low you are not in the power band. You want to be about 7100 RPM'S You also wrote that the shoe is a nickel lower than the hull the shoe should not sit lower than the hull you will lose major speed.

Put stock tabs back on
how much fuel?
temps that day?
I hope you got mixed up when you said the shoe is a nickle lower than the hull...... I dont see how that is possible anyways.
150psi head will wake it up
3 degree timing key
This would be a good start to pull the 14/20.
Also,Waveeater clips/couplers are a must if you do not have them now.

Welcome to the forum Mastice.
Although I do not think that it is a problem for you, I will trade a "D" plate for an "O" plate. I've never used one before and would like to try one.

I screwed up and meant to say that the pump shoe is recessed by a nickel amount up into the hull sorry,so its not hanging too low. I plan to go ahead and put on the aftermarket heads to see if I can get my rpms up and to put the stock trim tabs are on. I weight about 185 lbs and my efi settings are around 4,6,1,7ish to make sure it turns red light on around 5500 rpms. Thanks for the help, I love this site.!!!
