    avoided buying a new ski for wife

    after my ski was done, My wife wanted a 1300R for herself she wanted to get rid of here 99 XLL. that was doing 65 mph. with the mods i had on it. She wanted a faster ski and one with more kick of the line, So i told here if i get your ski to do 70 mph. with a excellent hole shot will you be happy see said yes. So yesterday i got done with here ski. It has VF3 reeds, And stock carbs with fernando's mods and jetting. Stock head reworked, Advent, Jet works mod, Riva intake grate, And my new cut plate. It's a true 1200 66v motor with no porting. The only thing that did not come in yet is the 05 pump it will be in monday. So my friend Denis let me use one of his impellers he had at home. A new jet 6.5 pitched to 14/20 Went out today all runs were in calm water. hit 70.2 mph twice 70.4 mph. twice and a 70.5 mph once. I raced 2 rxp's and went right by them, The look on there face was what the hell just happened. I had a ball with that ski today. Matter of fact i was having so much fun that i didn't even let my wife ride it. Cant wait till i put the 05 pump on next week should run mid to high 71 mph. I did not even pull my ski from the trailer.

    I was happy with my 1200 with a pro-tec kit (wake up). Then my dad bought an RXP, so then I had to buy my wife a 2004 1300r (she was happy with an 800r), then every one was kicking my BUTT. so I bought a new impeller from protec. still got my but kicked,by her and my dad!
    So NOW group K is doing a big block kit and handling package for me.
    and I'm putting in the jet works mod, I hope to have the money foe Nandos reeds, and may be a plate from JIM.

    And if I get my but kicked by them two this year,,,, I'm going to buy a sail boat!
