    Does this speed sound about right?

    GPS'd my ski this weekend. I have R&D d-plate, ppk, and 1200 intake grate. On nice day 78 degrees outside with almost full tank of gas I went 64.2mph. Next day 70 degrees out but raining I went 65.3 with 2 bars (almost low fuel warning light). water was glass both days. I was running regular 87 octane both days.. To me it seems slow but I am also kind of new to this. Any feedback or suggestions?

    On a GP1200R? We can get GPS 72 max on my neighbors 03 with just a slight bit of chop and going with the current-and it gets there fast, is has some kind of aftermarket plate, but the rest is stock.

    I was able to do 68mph with a plate, grate, ppk, d-plate.

    This was at 400 ft above sealevel and it was perfect out.

    should be good for the 3 mph.. i dont know carls plates but you may need to get it set up right..
    get a 4 foot straight edge and do search on plate set up if carl dont include instructions

    the bit i find hard to belive is you phoned carl and he picked up the phone...lol...
