    1996 GSX Max RPM Stock

    Just had full engine rebuild, rebuild carbs, all new fuel lines, the works. I am running 7200RPM and about 55mph gps, 160psi on each cylinder completely stock. I dont have anything to compare to, (all our other sea-doos are 4stroke) is this a good/safe/heathly RPM and speed for stock? Ski has 230hrs on it, just want to keep it running for a few years.

    7200 is above the stock rev limiter. Maybe the guage is not accurate.

    I thought that seemed high, what is the stock rev limiter set at? In theory if this is correct, is it damaging my engine? How long is safe to run at WOT on a stock 800 motor?

    If the fuel mixture is correct, you can run it wot as long as you want. The prop can't be stock. Stock max rpms are 6900 +/- 50 with a stock prop, and 57-58 mph.

    Yes, pull it off and take a pic of it. Post it up here and we'll tell you what you have.
