    depitching solas 13/20 for my fzr 15

    So yesterday i installed a 13/20 solas ok my 15 fzr with scom, intake, exhaust and cooling kit. I am very happy with this prop since my ski is running 75 76 all the time and way better than the stock impeller. Now, i saw that my rpms where 7500 with the solas without depitching it, what you guys recommend me to do? Depitch it to gain 150 rpm or leave it like that?

    Figure its going to pickup that 150rpm if you ride later into the year and the air/water cools off. Depitch it now, have to add some later or have a summer and a "winter" prop.....

    Have the prop re-pitched to a 13/18, then add the lucky 13 pump cone to tune your rpm during summer/winter when required. No point in constantly removing the prop for different seasons.

    I think the stock limiter is at 7850 on these skis shoot for 7750, i always hear to depitch, if you depitch you should get some MPH. Hows the holeshot? i just ordered mine and im probably going to depitch it before install.

    Holeshot with the Solas 13/20 de-pitched to 13/18 is night and day difference when compared to stock. There is no way I will ever return back to a stock prop on this ski.

    One of my guys lost 6 miles per hour with this prop re pitched to 13/18 on a '15 FZR with an R3. Was 82, now 76 @ 7840 rpm. Another FX with same pitch and mods lost 2 mph. Was 77 now 75. What gives?

    Who repticed their props hotbutta?

    The solas 13/20 is actually a 13/21 - 13/22.

    Speedfreaks. I look like an a$$ right now. we got three of these and now we're over a thousand dollars in the hole on props and going slower. The guys are ripping them off now.

    something else is wrong, EVERYONE else who pitched them and put them on got faster, you/your crew has been the only people to loose speed. not a dig on you but check your pitch, look elsewhere, shouldn't be the prop
