    my first VXS... any suggestion or experience?

    Hi...
    I own a old FZR
    It was quite fast... 83 mph is my top speed and now.
    I'm a little tired to change clutch every 30 hours...
    I want to buy an old used 2012 VXS
    Anyone have experience with this ski?
    is very reliable?
    is the fuel consumption so different from my FZR ?
    what's the top speed?
    I've heard something about bucking off at high speed.... is it true? do I need to upgrade grate like I did in my FZR?
    something else I heve to know before I buy it?
    (I do not will sell my fzr)

    Its a decent ski... I had a 2011 that I put 458 hours on it ... only problems I had were self induced... except the steering cable was getting a little stiff when i traded it in...there are no bells and whistles on it at all... i have a 2016 now and its 10 times the ski the '11 was but in comfort and ride,but it is slower... i was running 67-68 on the '11 with intake,ribbon delete free flow exhaust and stock ride plate shimming...the '16 has trim and the RiDE System...top speep with a GP 1800 ride plate is around 63-64 mph... with stock plate it was running 61-62 mph.

    Thank you Jerry.
    I remember your turbo conversion on your vxr!
    An incredible build.
    Like ever!

    Thanks for sharing your (positive) experience.
    I assume you never bucked off the ski.
    Did you do 450 hours with stock intake grate?
