    Riva Stage 1 and no top end gain?

    So I just got my 2007 RXP on saturday and was on it on saturday an sunday and had a top speed of 70mph on the display. I had the Riva stage 1 put on yesterday and was out on the water today and still only got to 70mph at 7980 rpms. I am not sure what the rpms were on saturday and sunday but I was sure to look today. Is this normal or should I be getting a higher top speed?

    the speedo display max's out at 70 and usually read high anyway. gps it to get the right speed. my display was about 6-8 mph out from what the gps reads.

    Thanks I didn't know that it maxed out at 70. Also does 7980rpms sound right for a stage 1?

    I just got an 07 as well with a stage 1 and my top speed today on gps was 69.3mph and rpms where at 8140 with spikes sometimes to 8160. I still think my top speed is low though with a stage 1. I think with the stage 1 we should be around 71-72 gps.

    Yeh, what trim settings you running mate? best speeds come from having it the way up for me so far...

    I got the 69.3 with the trim one notch above neutral. If I have it all the way up or all the way down I can't get over 66.

    rider weight, fuel level, air quality, etc all play a part in top speed runs.
    grab a GPS and run when your lower on fuel...

    I adjusted the trim all the way up and down and it made no difference for me the display still said 70 but like I said I didn't have a gps. I am going to try to get ahold of one today and try.
