lost to honda f15
can not understand it out did me out of hole and i had to play catchup.
i got him at topend but it took sometime. mabe my ski is not running good i had to change the plugs at 16hours and it only had 89oct. gas in it do not want to lose the kid is a pain in my ass. top speed on speedo was 71

?? 71 ??
Well I never put anything less than 93 oct. in so the lower oct. could be to blame and I know for a fact the speedometers on our Ultras at least on the 07s do not read anything over 70mph...Ive have had my Ultra above 70mph before and the speedometer stoped at 70mph... and I had to rely on my GPS form there on out to get a speed reading
I dont know maybe the 08s speedometers read 70+...is your Ultra a 07 or an 08 ?
Also maybe that Honda was not stock...maybe it had some work done to here

89 octane will have a pretty big impact on performance.

Those f15xs are fast. My friend has a blue one and if I don't get the jump on him there is no catching him. Stock they are good for 68 mph. Once they figure out how to boost the turbo we are all in trouble. Nice job Honda.

I dont know Honda but 68mph if true is going to be another ski all over the Kawi.

if you guys thought the Kawi was big. Wait till you see the Honda..OMG.. If we have a "BARGE", they have a cruise ship!

I've read a couple reviews of the new honda being in the 65 mph range not 68. I will ask around in the honda section. I dont think they will ever be much faster than 70 without a ton of $ and mods. The size and weight as well as hull design don't look speed friendly
