    FZR speed

    Hi I bought my fzr 2 weeks ago and installed the r&d grate with silicone from 4 tech, I rounded the ride plate on the leading edge and took it for a spin and the speed was 68.8 then I installed riva power filter kit and the riva intake upgrade kit from 4 tech now my speed is 69.1 should it be more or is the grate holding me back and will need a new impeller and ride plate to get over 70 if so what impeller what pitch

    70 gps? because fzr/s will read around 75 top speed on the speedometer.
    gps top speed is about 68 give or take.

    69.8 was the best I've seen on a stock FZR. Motor was all over the rev limiter.

    Whats everyone's definition of stock? stock means out of crate. An air intake and freeflow is not stock.The motor is stock, but it has bolt on's.

    Out of crate i hit 68.7 on low fuel buzzer, no bolt on's.

    Jerry was at 70.5 with air intake, free flow and ribbon removed and on limiter.

    I can't see a STOCK ski hitting the limiter, mine doesn't

    I asked same question before about the definition of "STOCK" and never got an answer. My FZS has Performance Power filter kit (RIVA), Intake manifold(RIVA, Free flow exhaust(RIVA), sponson (RIVA), R&D grate with pump seal kit. I got 70 mph (GPS), 1/2 tank and nice water. I still consider my FZS "stock" .

    Before everyone gets all pissy about bone stock numbers understand that ride conditions are going to play a major role. Salt water will slow you down, elevation, water temps, air density. All of those can and will add and take away 1 or 2mph from day to day. Don't try comparing a ski in NJ to a ski in West TX or whatever.

    true, my speeds in the salt are not the same in fresh waters...
