    Speedo maxin out at 70.....!!

    The speedo on my ski has been able to read 70 since I got it, in stock mode....Radar read 66.
    Since mods have now got radar to read 72.6 and the speedo will still max out at 70...?
    I know these things are not great at the best of times but is there anything I can do to get the readings above 70....
    Also tell tale on max speed and Rpm even after re-set will only go up to 70 also......Help!!!!!!!

    Bob,
    I'm still debating on installing a pully kit. I'm hoping there is more speed in this machine without having to go to a kit. The aftermarket has only had less than a year to develop this ski so I'm hoping to see more parts this spring.

    I thought stock was slightly over 82mm. This sure is a big difference.
