The new Yamaha 1300 R is the easiest and cheapest to make it go 70's.. There are no 80 mph stock ski's and NOT Very many 80 mph modified ski's well there is one but the owner of outback steak house spent like 50 grand to make it go 83.
I believe this is the gentlemen the teamed up with RIVA Yamaha for the world record. Just goes to show you how much $$$ it takes make a ski REALLY do 80mph +.

Default PWC's

I have owned 4 different brands of PWC's over the past 10 years and really enjoyed each one. I have since purchased 2 XL800 yamahas (2001) at the 2002 boat show (leftovers) and have nothing but a great results.
I asked the mechanic that had serviced all my PWC's what he recommended. He said that he owned several different brands and raced a couple, and did not own a Yamaha, but if buying one for riding and not working on, he would by the Yamaha. He said he made his living on all the other brands, with the exception of Yamaha. So that is what I bought. They have been great.
