    acceleration on a 08 FX HO

    how well do the FX HO's accelerate compared to lets say an '08 GPR or 99 GP800 with some bolt ons. just curious. obviously the gpr has more top end.

    anyone ?

    i can't compare to an 08 gpr but yesterday i (04 fx160) raced 2 brand new 08 15f's (3hours old)
    we had 3 races each time they pull half a ski length on me at the start they held that till i started to come past with a bit more top end
    i was 1mph faster on top end they were both within .1 of a mph (gps verified)
    although there speedos were about 4kph diferent to each other
    we all had about 2/3rds of a tank of fuel
    when i have raced a gpr in the past i got in front on take off (can't remember if i left first or not)
    once in front i could see him catching up but he could not get past due to conditions ,as soon as he would get close he would hit a small wake and loose some drive i stayed if front for at least 3 miles
    but another time when when conditions suited him beter he has run me down and come past quite easily

    yes can someone please comment on this topic, because I have a friend in the buying market that would like to know what the 0-30 is for the HO and if its worth it. Other options are supercharged skis, but he's looking at the ho cruiser. Let me know.

    Thanks for the link, it appears they have no acceleration data either. Just top speed and fuel consumption. The rest of the info was perfect for what my friend is looking for and he just wants to make sure he gets a ski that'll run over 61-62.

    i think i am leaning more towards the 15F, just because of acceleration. top speed is in the same range

    If you ride in rough water, the 15F will beat you to a pulp & the FXHO will pass you by...
