Help me understand last year my 07 rxp ran at 7950 rpm i filled ride plate holes and installed a riva grate and yesterday i took it out and was steadily pushing 8120 with 47 hrs could it just be breaking in or what

difference in air temp, water temp, humidity, wind, I assume that you were on the same lake if not altitude change. Many environmental varibles that can change power.

yeah same lake water was 72 air 75 seems like rpms never got that high last year at same temp

Maybe a little less drag with the ride plate holes filled helped, and also even just a slightly different setting on your VTS will make you more efficient and pick up speed/rpm.

I rode at the same lake today as last week with same air temp and 100 to 150 rpm difference. I am at 2,600 ft, and i suppose that density altitude changes drastically depending on the moisture in the air and pressure.

Dont worry, heat's coming in and all our RXP's will say bye bye to good rpm's..... Time to start locating those larger rings and short shuttles again.
