66.9 is my best. No mods.
Technically we should be averaging two directions. I know I would be less if I did that. It might just average 65 in two directions.

How did you "seal" your pump?
Any pictures- Advice?

I "sealed" the pump shoe, which is part of the intake grate on the SHO. The GPR's pump shoe is seperate from the intake grate. Go to the online store and under SHO scroll down. You'll see the pump seal kit. I made my own with 5200. And I used 5200 to "caulk" the shoe to the hull. I used a putty knife so it's flush with the hull. I also filled all the bolt holes on the bottom of hull(ride plate, intake grate) with JB weld putty. It's all just tricks I learned from the GPR guys. Go to the 2stroke side and SEARCH it. I'll post some pics later.
Hope this helps.

Please forgive, I don't know how to post links. computer illiterate. But I found it all under the 2stroke side(GP1300R). I did all this stuff to my GPR too.
