    Yamaha VXR 2014 not hitting 60

    Hello,

    Last year my ski was able to get up to 65-66, but this year it barely gets to 60.


    What may be the problems? The ski has 80 hours on it...


    I had it winterized and stored properly. Just changed the spark plugs, and added Sea-foam. Checked under the grate and nothing visible for me to see to slow it down.


    Any suggestions ?


    Thanks guys,
    Kiddy

    What RPM are you seeing and were last years speeds by GPS or dream-o-meter?

    I am getting 7,000 RPM's. Been using the speedometer on the PWC and GPS.

    Side note: The hull was carrying a little while earlier this year. I just drained it all out recently. The idle has a little stutter, but not enough to make it completely noticeable.


    Does anyone know what max RPM's should be ?

    Took it out today, and it barely got to 56. Top speed on this thing should hit 67

    is the hull still holding water? a few inches of water in the hull could affect your performance. No supercharger in the VXR so not too many things it could be to slow you down.

    Just found that the bottom of the air filter is wet. I'm going to buy a new air filter/kit and get back.

    As the air filter is wet, you may be getting a lot more water in the engine pay than you realize, and it adds a lot of weight. The bilge pump pushes it out, so you don't see it when it is really full. Have you done any leak testing? Do you have the stock air filter or an aftermarket filter?
