    Speed loss...

    Last year, according to the mph gage on my machine, I was running 72, everything stock as can be. Now i know thats not really true cuz it has to be gps'd to be true. Anyway...I get on the river today, river temp 36, air temp 55, the river was glass and i was running 60 mph at 8100 rpms according to the mph gage. Yesterday I installed my new solas 14/17, last month i put on a short 4 inch intake and took out my resonator. Why such the difference in speed? Overall, i feel like i have more of a hole shot and get up to 60 fast than ever, but why only 60? Anybody? I feel like puting my intake and resonator back on and see what happens......

    maybe due to you being up on plain more and maybe your stock mph gauge isnt hitting the water right...


    GPS it...and then come back and tell us what it says...

    Sounds like your speed wheel or gauge.

    Same as me mate... the 14/19 requires stage II on the bigger boat, the 14/17 seams to be the better prop.. and if you are getting 8100 then def.
