only 60 on the dreamometer
Last Season I was hitting 65-70 on the dash speedo but at the end of last season and so far this year I havn't gotten it to read anything over 60 (usually 59) I know it's nitpicking and i know the dash speedo isn't exactly trustworthy but what gives? I told the dealer about the issue last year when I had the 10hr tune done, they say everything looks ok. any ideas? I'm wondering if ive sucked in too many things and the prop blades are too nicked up to get me any faster. Or maybe something is screwy with the ECU and it thinks i'm using the SLO key?
I've never used the SLO key so I don't know what the limit on that key is.

Do a search on this forum for more info as I know someone posted some wisdom about that.
Regardless, do not hold much faith in the dashboard speedometer. If you want to know how fast you are going, get a GPS.

dont go by the dash. make your life easier and get a simple gps and you will know "real" speeds. does the ski feel like its slower, or u going by the dream-o-meter only ?

Mine does the samething. I was out on the river one weekend and couldnt get over 60mph on the dash speedometer. My ski felt like it was running as good as ever. Borrowed a friends GPS unit and found out i was doing 65mph. I need to invest in a GPS myself.

My dreamometer says 58-60 while the gps says 69-70. There is a reason that they call it the dreamometer lol!

Just loosen the 2 allen bolts on the paddle wheel assembly and slide it all the way down and retighten it, it will read faster if that makes you happy,
