    RPM's on Yamaha 150 VMAX

    How many RPM's should I be running on a Skeeter sx190 with a Yammie VMAX 150? I really don't trust my tach, sometimes it reads 4000 and sometimes 5000 at the same throttle position. It seems like some people just nail it and run full throttle. This is my first boat so I really have no clue. I don't want to blow it up.

    Sounds good, afterwards we can have a knitting circle and discuss our menstruation cycles.John Ward

    I have a V-Max HPDI 200 and at full throttle it's around 5800 - 5900 and around 62-64 mph.

    Do you run wide open or do you hold back and watch your rpms? i think i might be babying mine too much. i had it up to 62 when i was by myself but i don't think that would be good to run wide open all the time. especially when trailering or trying to tie up to a dock

    Your engine life will be inversely proportional to the time you run it at WOT.

    I don't run it wide open much.. It cruises very nicely at 45-50 mph. Really the only time I run it wide open is on the Wednesday Nighter take offs but by then I'm at least 6 beers and a couple shots deep.

    thanks, mine seems to run good around 4000 rpm, about 35-40 mph. I think I'll continue to do that unless that dang ol' turkey is riding shotgun and mocking me.
