    Sorry only mentioned 93 octane because all the pumps here go 87, 89, 93. It is rare to find 91. But K447 is correct 91octane is all that is needed to run the svho motor at the performance Yamaha sets it at.

    I love my 16 vxr and the 19 has better ride plate and intake grate. If all you have is regular fuel, I think a vxr is a great choice and really your only choice. And like someone said above.. don’t let the numbers fool you too much. A lightly modded vxr has no problem hanging with a gtr230 even though on paper they’re “50hp” apart.

    my 2 cents...forget the vxr I like power if u ride rivers or smooth lakes get the gpr 1800...but if u ride ruff waters to heavy chop get the fx svho...I have a 16 fx svho and really like this ski.

    SVHO is not intended to run on regular octane gasoline.

    I have a 2019 VXR. I agree, if you buy gas on the lake often then I would suggest VXR. Not as fast as GP or SVHO but has the reliability and still runs with most skies out there today. I am interested in a new ride plate and intake grate but for now all I have is Sponsons and ribbon delete. Topping out at 62mph on a smooth day.

    2019 VXR already has the faster (than prior years) ‘R=race’ ride plate, from the factory.

    It is possible to have it further modified by Jim to gain a little more speed. Potentially with some loss of rough water competence.

    The pre-2019 VXR intake grate might be faster than the 2019 VXR scoop intake grate.

    I have yet to read a proper comparison of the 2019 Yamaha scoop grate with the non-scoop ‘regular’ Yamaha intake grate and the Riva intake grate.

    I would just wait until the warranty is up and do a stage 1 kit. I’m getting 69 on my 15 vxr
