my stock 78 bravo only goes 20mph! make sure the belt is not slipping, jetting is correct (not four stroking), and the your air filter is clean. how fast did it go before the carb and exhaust?
ok, so the bravo will only do 20 mph and i cannot keep up with my brother on his 2hp maxi. where do i start with modifications? i am not opposed to a piston/cylinder/ head, carb or exhaust pipe. any suggestions on what particular brands and order of importance? do i need to upgrade the variator or rear end gearing? looking for 35-40 mph.thanks in advance!
