    What does my FZS Need

    Hey guys I just got my FZS 2 weeks ago and im having a blast. I do all salt water in SoCal and do a lot of open ocean and this ski is amazing out there. However there are a couple things I wanted to address to see if you guys coudl reccommend possilble solutions. First issue is I feel even when riding in the bay that even over small wakes the ski lifts off the water and sucks in air for a second or so which is getting annoying. The other thing is that I feel like my top end has so much more but the ski seems to be running out of breath almost. I wanted to see what are some things that I can do within reason that will improve some of these issues.

    Thanks in advance

    Welcome to the forum. You should read Jerry's FZR Build thred.
    He has done all the mods on his FZR already. There are alot of hotrod parts avalable already.

    If you want your FZS to hook up better in the choppy water. Get a Better intake grate.

    Def. get the intake grate right away, it improves so many aspects of the ski, and safety. Removing the foam is also a must.

    There are foam pieces covering the air duct openings behind the cowling. I talk about them in this thread

    R&D and Riva both make intake grates for this ski. Both are $199.95

    You can find them in this section of my store
