    Talking New Best for me...

    Let me start out by thanking everyone who has answered my many questions and worked on my parts. Osidebill, Jim, Rich, and Ross just to name a few. I have a 2006 GP1300R with the following mods:

    Jims milled head
    Jims FF plate
    1200 grate
    14/20 done by Jim
    CoCo hull reinforcement
    EFI controller (4-4-1-6)
    Sonic Booms
    PPK
    Old style tabs trued by Jim
    OsideBills milled inserts
    d-plate

    The ski did a previous best 71 and today I was able to get 74.1 out of her. I had added the head, sonic booms, efi controller, reinforcement, tabs, and the redone impeller. I have a tach but couldn't wait to hook it up so I went to the water anyway so I have no idea what the rpm's were. I hope to have the tach hooked up next go around to see if maybe she has a little more in her. I know it's not the blistering speeds some of you put up but I am happy with it and mom isn't running off on me anymore. I know there are a couple more things I could do, i.e. vf3's and keyway, but those will have to wait til another day. With my new baby the purse strings got tightened recently. And I almost forgot, all I did was install my d-plate and I never got any warnings today. Here's hoping it stays that way. Anyway, thanks again to those who offered help.

    Awesome numbers Suthrn, Put an 800 grate a key way and VF3 and you will be 77 plus MPH. Great job.
