How many RPM's is too high ??
Today I ran the highest RPM's/speed I have ever ran due to removing my 2* wedge
I used to have the Riva ride plate and wedge combo and after reading a post on here that someone had great success after removing the wedge and leaving the ride plate I thought I would give it a try ...it worked GREAT !
I hit a max 8140 RPM's and was around 69.8 at that point
So does anyone think that may be too high of a RPM ?
Thanks for any feedback

No problem, I wish mine would get those kind of rpms. What were you getting before you removed the wedge?
The engines over-rev capability has been raised by 700 rpm (redline is 8,900 rpm)

Befor I removed the wedge I was around 7800-7940 max
but after I removed the wedge I noticed a large jump in RPM's and gained about 1.2mph

That don't make any sense!We all installed ride plates and wedges and gained speed now we take them off and gain speed ?

I dont understand it either......When I ran with the Plate and Wdege I couldnt get more than 68.6 @ 7920 RPM's
But today I removed the wedge and hit 69.8 @ 8140 RPM's
Maybe due to weather conditions but they were not much diffrent since my last ride (when I had the wedge and plate)
And it seemed to me the handling was much better with out the wedge
Wind: 0-1mph form the North
Air Temp: 54
Water Temp: 53
Water Condition: Flat as can be
I remeber when I was still waiting on my ride plate to arive I bought the wedge and saw maybe 1.1mph gain and the ride felt a bit more "sloppy"
And today now that I have had the plate for some time I remove the wedge the ride felt much better much more stable and didnt come un-hooked nearly as much as it did with the plate/wedge combo

If I'm not mistaken, your signature said you turned 7860 rpm's before you changed it to 8140. Looks like you ran in some cool weather today but picking up 280 rpm from cool weather and pulling your wedge is a huge increase.
