Just bought a 2003 FX 140:

Max RPM is 9500, guy said he adjusted it down to 9500 max...is this possible and how can i readjust to 10,000?

Max speed is 60-65 kmh...thought it would run much faster. Any ideas?

Idles and runs fine, just much slower than anticipated.

Guy told me he just replaced plugs, air filter and has a new water pump.

Thanks for any help.

PS..Anyone recommend a service guy in Central Texas area?

- Never heard of anyone adjusting the RPM down? Why? That machine is made to run as set at the factory. Don't know how you would do it without modifying the ECU.
- Top speed for the FX should be around 53-54 mph (85 + kmh), so you are definitely too slow.

Be sure the ski isn't set in Low RPM mode. That will limit the RPM and speed to around what you are getting. In Low RPM mode it beeps 3 times when you start up or hit the remote and a light will light up on the display to show that you are in the limited mode. Hold the unlock button on the remote for 4 seconds to change out of this mode to regular mode.
