    8200 and you will be at a solid 8150 without knowing that it's doing 8200+. atleast that was the case for me on my '05..

    I believe the Rev limit is 8200 RPM. I think it was the 2006 and newer models that they raised the Rev limit to 8300 RPM.

    Anyways, the purpose of the Rev limiter is to keep the engine from over revving and damaging itself. It is programmed into the ECU which is bolted on top of the intake manifold (for the RXP anyways). You will know if you're hitting it because your RPM will go up and then get knocked back down. Also, your ski will lose some power because the ECU is keeping you from banging off the limiter. Anything above 8100 RPM on a stock 4tec SCIC ECU and you will start to lose HP.

    What do you mean...

    I don't mean to be picky...this wasn't clear is all.

    the rev limit is 8200.
    when I was over the limit (around 150 rpms over) my tach still said 8150.
    hope that makes more sense
