    not enough speed in light chop

    I currently have a 96 1100 waveraider. compression 110psi across all cyl. wear ring is good and impeller is a solars xo and Protec intake grate. I ran it in light chop today and only got 54.3 gps. It hooks up great and has killer holeshot. I do think that i pre-mixed too much oil and my plugs could have been fouled. Anything like a bearing in the pump making me loose mph or are the waveraider just that bad in anything but smooth water.

    i checked the pump and bearings were good unfortunately you loose that much speed in any kind of chop with raider-my 72mph on glass turns to 67 in light chop so only way to find out is run in glass conditions even with the protec you should get 57-58mph on glass
