07 Fx Ho Rmp Kit
I,m thinking about the upgrades but I wanted to see who got the kit and what kinfdof difference you get. I have some cavitiation and I'm trying to decide to upgrade or stay stock.
ROde my friends 08 ultra gps'd @ 69.6 so now I need more speed.

I think the RPM kit is a great investment. You will get increased acceleration AND reach top speeds of 65ish. For an extra 5-6 mph, the kit is worth it.

That's it. Only 1 ? No other have any input in the Riva upgrades ?

Well from my experience the best bang for the buck is a SOLAS impeller swap. It'll give you that real -from the seat of your pants feel- It'll have so much more pull out of the hole.

The new nano hull HOs should be a little faster than past HOs but I still don't see them going 65 with just an RPM kit.
The only disappointment I've ever had with my HO has been it's lack of speed. The SHO would surely cure that ill but with a near $20,000 price tag here in Japan, I won't be getting one. Not anytime soon anyways...

i have had 65.5 on gps
it was a good day low fuel and light rider
the rpm kit was not just bolted on parts under the ski were ground where nesasary to make them fit right

i'm not finished yet either
still have some more things to try when i get time
i should also say that above speed was with a machined R&D plate
i think a machined riva plate will give even more speed (or make it handle bad)
