    Thank you, GreenHulk forum

    Want to thank everyone for their help and advice and thank you Jim for a fantastic ride plate.

    Took my 2017 VXR out today and I don't know if regapping the spark plugs or its first oil change to mobile 1 synth. Or the engine starting to losen at 14 hours.

    The best it would do before regapping the plugs and the oil change was 67.9 mph (GPS) today with same amount between 1/2 and 1/4 tank of gas I was hitting 69.6 mph(GPS) ,better than I ever expected without getting a reflash .

    all I have done is removed ribbon ,K&N pod air filter and rerouted kanoflex hoses up to filter ,big improvement Jim's cut ride plate ,regapped plugs to .027 and freeflo exhaust which I think did absolutely nothing. Oh I also shimmed the front of the ride plate with 2 washer's each front corner
    And i am fixing to go back to Tommy Jordan modified exhaust.
    All I wanted was 68mph on 87 octane and was able to get 69.6 mph so I'm extremely happy with this ski ,so thanks guys.

    Good stuff man.. Glad to hear this.. I just got Jim's plate put on and set up an appointment to get the oil and plugs changed. Im hoping to get up there too. I do still need the K&N filter though. Do you recall what improvement the filter did to your unit MPH wise?

    The filter mite only add 1 mph but it makes a big difference in power thru the mid range.
