    2003 fx cruiser top speed

    hi, i just bought an 03 fx cruiser and took it out for the first time today and i could only get it up to around 47. It was a only around 1/2" chops if that. Could it be old gas from last year? Also, the ski goes about 40 when the throttles halfway down. But when i pull it all the way it only goes 7 mph faster. It's not a huge deal because its mostly for tubing, but i would like to be able to go the top speed. Thnaks for any suggestions!

    they do around 54 mph
    are you going by the speedo or gps
    old gas or oil on the air filter can cause a lose of speed
    pull the air filter out and run it and see if you get some speed back
    also check your revs you should be at 10,000

    try new plugs, air filter, and up the octane on that stale gas.
    55mph on a speedo

    so if there was oil or gas in the air filter how much would that affect the speed?

    just take the filter out and take it for a run you will find out if it was a problem pretty quick

    Also try putting some WD-40 on the speedo wheel that's mounted on the ride plate. After setting for a while mine would start binding up and giving you a false speed reading. Just a thought.
