    XLL speeds?

    With the mods listed in my profile below, what should a 225lb guy be seeing speed wise?

    My Dream-o-Meter was showing a 5 mph change on glass for a ride platge and jetworks mod, might be due to ride plate.

    Last year I NEVER hit over 57 on the D-o-meter, this year I've hit 63 on glass. BEat up my buddies 97 GP 1200 (slightly moded too), out ran him by about 2 mph.

    Well, a lot depends on what kind of plate, intake, jetting, other mods you have. You need to get a tach and a GPS, the dream-o-meter doesn't mean a thing; you can change ride plates, get no real increase in speed, and spin your speed sensor faster.

    You can get a commercial tiny tach (the one that updates 2x/sec) for around $60, i think... and a low end GPR for a few bucks more.

    But, with your mods, I'd say somewhere between 59-61 MPH is where you should be running.

    Have the T-Tach Commercial and GS. Didn't have them along, went out for testing sesion to make sure it was seaworthy. Ran into a race.

    The best GPS speed I had last year was 56-57.

    61-62 sounds right with those mods. Try removing the cone (that's good for rought water hookup), the stock cone is better for top speed. Also, do a top speed run with a GPS and get a good Tach reading....there might be some more speed on that prop.
