    Recommended Impeller Pitch for 2013 FZS

    Hello, I have a 2013 FZS with the following modifications and with a 13/19 Skat Trak impeller, and I am not sure that is the right pitch and wanted to know if that is the right pitch for my setup. Has anyone bought a impeller directly from Skat Trak and had issues with it not being pitch correctly? R&D recommended not buying it directly because they e said the are normally off. Thanks in advance.

    I think the 13/19 is not near enough for your setup. What is your RPM?

    FYI, R&D gets their impellers from Skat Trak

    The only way to know for sure will be to put a decent tach on the ski and see where your RPMs are at.

    I am going to get a tach and check the rmp's...I will post back when I am done.

    I know R&D gets their impellers from Skat Track, but the check the pitch before they sell it and fix them if their off.

    Solas YS-DF-13/22R should put you right around 8550-8600 in this weather and give you a hair more top end speed over the Skat but IMO, the Skat is a better prop. It's always best to check ANY prop from ANY manufacturer. You'd be surprised how many claimed pitches are off even from places like Riva or R&D.

    Just pointing out that it looks like he has a stock SC wheel since he didn't list a SC wheel in his mods, that Solas 13/22R is going to be way too big for a stock wheel to get anywhere near 8000 RPM. I was running all the mods in my sig except with the stock wheel with a Skat 13/20 and only getting to 8200ish. I'd have pitched my Skat prop down to 13/18 or even 13/17 if I'd have kept my stock wheel in.

    13/17 and target 8600 rpm. You will have heat soak so your rpms will go down after running it a bit. Get a fizzle intercooler and a 14' modded fzr plate by Jim and you will be all over 78 mph. Without fizzle you will be 76 mph.
