130km race sho quicker than rxp-x
Hi there, I run the marine workshop at a yamaha dealership in South Africa, Ride a Blue SHO with minor mods.
We ran a 130km race on the vaal river in south africa last weekend, the sho was over a distance of 110km, 4min ahead of the closest rxp-x.(then ran out of gas) at an altitude of 1800m above sea level, with minor mods, the sho has definately got huge potential.

so the sho is fast but drinks more juice than the rxp-x....

Edit-Just because people have a seadoo doesn't make them a SEADOO GUY either. I have had seadoos and yamahas, so what "category" does that put me in. Again my friend, all about personal preference. Have a good day my friend

:- Almost let myself get sucked into another useless fight. Anyways Stallion RipnTear is proud of his SHO & tired of people who come to put it down, i will leave it at that. As for the SHO do you own one? I have consistently been beat by a local rxp until the water gets a little rough, Never have I lost to an RXT or GTX for that matter. Beat 1 kawi 250 lost to another when it got really rough. So before you post, you should check your facts.

JTSkier I fear you will be proven correct once the ECU gets released, any SHO owners who go that route will have to think about having a fuel barge to follow them around to go more than 40 miles @wot. But if thats what you are into, it is going to be interesting to see how the SHO responds.
As for that race, the SHO pilot must have made a refueling error because neither boat @ wot is capable of going that distance without refueling.
