    New Ski

    It's official. I pick up my '06 GPR on Thursday. The shop tempted me with an RXP for $8,999 OTD but after riding the Yami in rough local conditions I was sold.

    What first? After break in I'm planning to add:
    -R&D 2 bar 1200 grate
    -R&D 1200 ride plate
    -Pump seal kit
    -Prop ???? (best acceleration, good top speed???)

    Winter plan: -CF tunnel reinforcement.

    I have GPS but no tach.

    Any input would be appreciated,
    Erin

    Buy a tach so you can track what your mods are doing for you... I just purchased a Tiny Tach Commercial directly from http://www.tinytach.com for $72 shipped. It isn't as nice as the PET tachs but for less than 1/3 the price I can live with it! Hope you enjoy your ski I plan on joining you with one soon... that is if nothing new is released by Yamaha in Sep that I can't pass up.

    From what I have read a 14/20 Dynafly prop is what you will want to get... step your sponsons and then you can look into a D-plate, EFI controller and then go from there! Sounds like you are on the right track though... oh, and you should for sure send that ride plat to Jim for him to work his magic on it!

    I have a commercial TT on my SPX, It's a piece of CRAP! I've been on the phone with TT to work out the bugs with no success. The other day I was cruising at 10,400 rpm but when I got on the gas it dropped to 7,100???? It also resets itself every now-and-again.

    I was afraid the Dyna 14/20 would be too much prop for my big ass(6' 220#) and I don't want to loose accel. - any thoughts?

    I want to run R&D O-plate w/out EFI. - any lean issues?

    I'll have to resist applying "SeaDoo Magic Sauce" to this ski cause I also got a 5 year warrenty and don't want any issues there.

    Get the pet 2100 IMO. You can get it thru Jerry's online store.

    The DF14/20 is going to be too big unless you go into the motor. Heads, reeds, EFI, ect.

    You will be OK with D-plate with out the EFI controller.

    Go with your plan
    -R&D 2 bar 1200 grate
    -R&D ride plate
    -Pump seal kit

    So, should I spend my prop money on a PET or is there another prop? If so, I'll get both.

    The very first thing I would buy would be a ride plate.
    Then an intake grate for safety. Then get a tach and go into engine mods and prop.

    I tried the dynafly on my stock '06 and it was a dog on acceleration and I'm a lot lighter than you.
    Although it would run 70mph+ with just a rideplate, and prop.

    Listen to Ron, he has an 06.

    You can run a dynafly, but you would have to de-pitch. Waste of $$$ right now till you decide how far you wanna get into the motor IMO.

    Thanx Ron, the pic you posted on Pete's site didn't help.
