    Too bad, Im replacing clutch.

    BTW- Is Canyon open ? Ive been on Medina the last 2 weeks with zero issues.
    Canyon has been closed for the weekend so we dont have a ton of people for easter.
    Ramps are supposed to open back up today at 5pm. I will be down there to find out if they do open them.

If this has been answered and youíd like to post a link to another thread, have at it, but please donít yell at me .

    Anyway, I have a 2019 GP1800r with a stage 1 tune. Love the ski and the performance, best I got was 77.2, but itís more of a consistent 76. Iíd like to do some more mods, but Iím not really interested in going stage 2 as Iíve seen some pretty reliable stage 1 plus skis.

    Would you recommend stage 1 plus as itís sold by Riva? Difference between 13/18 and 13/20? Should I be doing a ribbon delete as well. Any guidance and experience you guys have would be greatly appreciated.
    You cannot just buy a prop and expect it to perform. You tune you prop last to achieve your target RPM's. I wouldn't waste my money on just a Riva stage 1 tune...IMHO they way overstate their gains. Speed costs money...how fast do you want to go? Depends on how much you want to spend. Here's what I would recommend for a great RELIABLE and fun ski that will bring a smile to your face every time you ride it. Riva (or others) performance intake, ribbon delete, Jim's Performance cut ride plate, TJ's exhaust mod, Dean's Team tune to 8500 (or 8650 if you want to push to the max RPM without having to need new springs and retainers), and a Fizzle Y1000 with genuine Tial BOV. Spend the extra money and get the Fizzle upgraded cooling kit for the IC only. Drill out your water strainer holes to the next larger size. With that package you should be pushing 80 mph. FINALLY...get a Solas 14/20, and tune it to the required RPM. Set your trailing edge to achieve about a 150-200 RPM differential between WOT and rev limiter. I run this exact package on my '16 FXCSVHO and it runs a consistent 80 mph @ 8000 RPM. (I have a Solas 14/21 and have not tuned it yet). It should be an 84-85 MPH ski once tuning is complete...my rev limiter is set at 8650. Once my prop is tuned my ski will smoke a Stage 2 for way less money.

    I have a stage 1+ and never saw over 77mph until it was freezing. They overstate big time.
    Im just now able to hit 80 by shimming the ride plate and added a Worx cooling line directly to the intercooler.

    I have suspected exactly what you are saying and all the naysayers say different. Thanks for confirming my thoughts, just a question. You say 14/21, Ive been thinking of going from a 13/18 to a 13/20 but now you got me thinking. What do you feel the differences would be between a 13/20 and 14/21 ? BTW- Im on a Riva tune.

    I agree and have similar results as you, I thought exhaust was a proven no performance gain mod ????
