    2019 FX SVHO Cruiser Top Speed

    I finally pulled the trigger and purchased the new 2019 SVHO cruiser. SO far I'm loving the ride but have a question about its speed and computer and hopefully the Yamaha gurus can help me...

    i broke in the ski according to the owners manual but my ski gps's at 68.9, does anyone know if they computer is limiting the ski until it reaches a certain amount of hours? i know the computer on sea-doos wont let you open it up completely until it reaches 12 hours, is it the same with yamaha

    my friend bought a brand new 2018 svho cruiser and his runs a solid 71.4 every time and it only has 8 hours on it. according to yamaha, the new svho puts out an additional 20% more power compared to the previous years and motors but im not seeing the power difference which is leading me to think that yamaha is restricting the ski from its full power till it reaches a certain amount of hours. My ski has 5.6 hours on it already.

    any insight? I've attached a few pictures for everyone to see

    Awesome looking ski....I believe power output is the same...as previous years with some minor mapping changes.
    From what I was told.

    The SVHO engine is more powerful than the predecessor SHO engine, which is no longer in production. My understanding is that all SVHO engines are rated for the same nominal output power, regardless of model year. There have been a few changes/updates to SVHO since the original year, but none have affected the rated output power.

    I do not know whether the 2019 FX SVHO has a different factory configuration regarding speed or power limiter.

    Are you using premium grade gasoline of 91 octane or higher?

    Does your friendís 2018 FX SVHO have any changes from factory?
    Does he weigh significantly less than you?

    Are you riding in similar conditions, air and water temperatures?

    Thats the computer speed limiting it due to regulations. She's pretty by the way. Email Dean's team they can removed the speed limiter for a fair price and if you decide to do a tune they will apply the prior purchase to the tune so you don't waste any money.

    As far as I know its all the svho's. I'm sure a call to dean, and he would be able to confirm.

    My understanding is that the FX SVHO, at least up to 2018, does not have an electronic speed limiter.
    I do not know whether the 2019 FX SVHO has a speed limiter, or not.

    Watercraft Journalís review of the 2016 FX SVHO ran about 72

    The GP1800, GP1800R (and FZ?) do have factory speed limiters.

    How can I confirm if it comes from factory with a speed limiter?

    Weight is around a 25-30 lb difference. Both skis running premium gas with 3 gallons each in the same conditions (flat, fresh water)

    To my understanding it's suppose to be running between 70-72 bone stock and I'm not close to 70
