    Solas impeller on the way

    I was told from my dealer that i will receive my solas impeller next week!
    It's a KX-CD-16/21.
    I will have results next weekend.
    Great news but temps here dropped to around 65 and raining.
    My *** will freeze but i hope to come with good results.
    Has anyone tested that impeller?

    Well it did nothing for me, maybe even lost a couple mph, but I did chew the housing out a bit (out to 0.32) but I only get around 7350rpm and can't feel any cavitation. Could be oil in the intercooler to though?

    Solas prop installed.
    Not to my ski but to my friends.(mine had other issues...)
    Results:
    Stock prop 7850rpm/68.7gps
    Solas prop 7690rpm/67.1gps
    No gain at holeshot,mid,high.

    Saturday he installed Solas - Sunday he reinstalled the stock one.
    His ski has same mods as mine.

    I am just a rec rider who loves speed.
    I dont own a shop or anything.
    I would like to hear what other people have to say about this prop.
    By the way,2 props for sale,1 still in box.PM me.

    I am told that there are two iterations of the SOLAS impeller for the 250X - is this the first impeller that is represented as stock or is it presented as an upgrade from the stock impeller........... wondering why you are losing speed.

    I dont follow you on that one.
    There is only one and its a concorde.
    It's a KX-CD-16/21.
    Check the website.
    Regarding the speed loss i was told that most aftermarket props work after you raise the HP.
    I am not an expert.Maybe it will work when someone comes with a stage 2...(i hope!)
    I would like to hear from others running this prop.

    I would strongly recommend that you switch back to your stock spark plugs...i saw a big difference between both i lost about 200 rpm's
