Drop compression to a safer level (140-160psi)
Get rid of Dominator&bottle and use a Riva manifold
Install DF 3 reeds and cages
Double bar intake grate and R&D/Riva ride plate
The Skat pump will slow you down,im getting good #'s with my stock pump and 14/20 Concord on my triple.
Stock trim tabs and sponsons instead of the Autodrop and mechanical tabs.
Thats what i would do first.

give Kerry a call. The link to him is in my signature just below. This is just an option that you have available to you, or you guys can attempt all of this on your own. there are lots of people here that will be able to help.

I have read on here that the mechanical tabs help with ski bouncing up and down or is that set up only good for chop riding

If your friend does sell the mech tab system, I'll take it off your hands, if it is complete, and in good shape. I need one bad. Mine is in sorry shape and needs some help.

What I would change for JUST a smooth water ski.
2002 GP1200R Super stock
-Boost bottle. Dump it and get a protec or r/d one.
-R&D mechanical trim and tabs. This will scrub a little speed.
-Skat trak auto drop nozzle with interchangable rings. This is scrubbing MAJOR SPEED, due to being a ZERO degree nozzle. Sell it to some racer buddies, and get a 5deg stock nozzle.
-custom water box-Possible top end robber here but very much a part of the flat top setup and the stinger inserts.
-Custom Bent Prop. It's probably a swirl design. Great for racing. Sucks for top end. You can try a DynaFly prop on that setback pump. If it still doesn't work then sell the pump and get a 2005 pump and put the dynafly on it.
-Custom Intake. If it is one of TJ's intakes, it's probably the best in the RACE world, but not so great for top end. Get a stock shoe and 2 bar to go fast in a straight line.
-carbon fibre RPOTS ride plate. Unknown. But it appears to be a very "closed course" oriented plate. You will probably do better with a modded R/d plate.
ski is running on VPC12 fuel-sorry to hear that.
custom stingers-Part of the overall flattop package and the modded waterbox, and race gas. It all works together.
Dominater intake- dump it.
-The ski is running 200 comp across the top. Hope you have a deeeeep wallet for race gas.
-Porting by Tim Judge. One of the best in the biz.

if you remove the Dominator you will lose 10 - 15 hp at 6,000 / 7,000 rpm and then you will have to sort out the jetting - you might be better off keeping it
