    65.8mph, what do you guys think?

    I have a 2001 GP1200R with 75hrs on it. just bought a GPS and my ski topped out at 65.8 mph with 1/2 tank of gas. I have 150 comp head, riva ride plate, D-plate, intake grate and 13/19 prop. are these speeds good? i think that it could get better with lower gas lol. what do you guys think? thanks

    well i have a washer under each of the front bolts on my plate. unfortunetly one of the screw inserts broke free and is spinnin inside the hull, so i cant get the plate completly off. should i throw another washer under each of the bolts to give it a tuch more lift out ofthe water? im pretty pleased with 65.8 mph. now if i put some nice airfilters on, with my speed go up cuz its breathin better?

    With the parts and fuel onboard,depending on the weather also,going from a 62+ MPH stock ski,your in the range.Remember,the 1200 grate will slow you down about 1mph.(never try the oem grate).Bad weather will effect your power/speed also.Were you just sitting on the seat? I recommend Waveeater clips right away for the PV's,and if you plan on going faster,get the tunnel reinforced and seal the pump shoe.

    What elevation & how hot and humid was it.Woody's right the weather has more than you think to do with it.I took my 1390 Xlt out today and only hit 68 @ 6750.I know I'm overpropped a little but the air was filthy thick.My corrected altitude was 3800ft.What Im trying to say is its all relative to humidity.
