    was this by the speedo or GPS? On my 07 I found out that my speedo was reading 3mph faster than GPS.

    Welcome to the forum bro. Are you SURE you used a GPS? 68.8 is unheard of for stock. We are running anywhere from 65-67mph using a GPS. NEVER rely on your speedometer.

    I just got thru with some runs as well. Just got my ski back from dealer from loose hoses to the intercooler. Water temp was at least 90F, and humidity was 60%. My best was 7550 RPM's at 63.9mph.

    guys ... he said 68.8. that should be a dead give away he was using a gps. and no.. its not unheard of. i wasnt that fast by any means stock. but if hes from the northern part with more suitable temps and humidity than its def. not that wild.

    Alot of guys hit around that speed with a ride plate and pump wedge...

    My Ultras top end varies quite a bit from day to day. I really have begun to wonder whether its just how she is feeling.

    I was stuck at 64+ during early first season. One day I hit 68 with wedge and Riva ride plate in perfect conditions. That was my absolute high watermark until 2 weekends ago when she ran 70.6. I thought I was a giant killer until I realized that was in fast moving current at optimal tide change. Could not come close to duplicating that speed going back the other way or during rest of ride. The level of fuel and gear weight makes some difference but not a lot on my ski.

    Got a big charge out of recent post where member asked if you run 3 mph down aisle of airplane going 500, are you running at 500 or 503mph? You know, that can lead to very deep conversations. I think the only correct answer is its all relative.

    I was not trying to say that his numbers were bogus, just curious is all, I did not even think about the .8 in the mph so yea that would be GPS. Maybe I should have gotten an 08 instead of the 07.


    Good numbers man.
