    Maptune stage two imuk 8500 plus

    Untouch prop 7800 rpm then I took it to the garage after repitch the prop 8200 rpm (don't know numbers of the pitch)

    They told me 8200 rpm to be safe because I don't have retainer

    id say 8400ish is when Id start being concerned, but retainers are easy to install if you are concerned. Not sure what the limit to bending the stock prop is but keep in mind you are changing the diameter so eventually youd want to have it machined back down. You are also changing the distance of the impeller blades to the stator which again becomes less ideal. Id probably live with it or maybe think about a cam to get a few hundred more rpm. Id probably give the new 13/16 solas 3 blade a try and see where that puts you.

    13/18 SXX will get you a few more RPMs... just check the pitch of the SXX prop before you install it.. they can be off a little.
    and be prepared to de-pitch the Solas SXX a little to fine tune it to your riding conditions.

    I de-pitched my SXX 1mm and in cooler weather I'm doing 80mph at 8538 RPM's.
    weather here in NJ now is high 80's to low 90's and best I can do is 77/78 mph at 8300 rpm.

    Thats why I recommend starting with the 13/16. Hes already running a depitched stock prop to get to 8200.

    If dinomite says 13/16 I'd listen to him, he knows his stuff and never steers anyone wrong

    14/19 would be more pitch(steeper) than a 13/18 and way steeper than a 13/16.

    He's already had to take pitch out of the stock prop to get 400 RPM and he's in riding in conditions way hotter than you or even I am in Florida that's why I recommend starting with the 13/16. He might even need to take pitch out of that one.
