  2. Ri217 Latest Software?

    I had my 17 ri 217 updated last week and yes I just looked my software is all newer than yours, I was having multiple issues with the screens and now everything is working great
  3. Dead in the water again....

    Just curious guys is this issue just on the 257, I have a 17 217 and just wondering if i need to be careful as well, was thinking of putting some more weight in the back of the lockers but now I'm thinking not. And also I don't have the silent stinger plate and I looked in the exhaust port and there is no rubber flapper or anything in there???
  4. Thanks guys and woody I can post up when I find my results, it will be a bit as I'm a farmer and right now is busy season so I won't get back on the water for a month or maybe more
  5. It has the 409 in it they didn't offer the h5 in 17 it was either the 409 or the h6. I'm gonna get in touch with my dealer and see if it will be possible to switch out the stinger plate to the new one that the exhaust goes into, should have ordered it with it never even thought of it as my 09 Avy never had any issues with that at all. As far as prop I talked to acme and they recommended a 2923 which is a 15.5 by 13.
  6. Hey guys got on the lake on weekend to test out my new ri and have a couple questions. boat has the 409 in it with the 1589 14.5 by 16 prop. After cruising around for break in we filled it up and did a little surfing water was a bit chilly at 48 degrees but we suited up and toughed it out. Do these things get less "gassey" when they break in? The exhaust fumes were terrible out back, couldn't sit on the back of the boat either it was to much, this only seemed to be while we were surfing. Any prop recommendations as I like to have a spare cause the lake we are at gets pretty shallow in places. My findings as of now with the 1589 where empty with 3 people on board it would go 38.5 mph at 5500 rpm(there was still more throttle left as I didn't want to rev it more than 5500. Surfing at 11.3 with 3 people and we had full ballast was around 4100 rpm, it pulled up to surf speed fairly well nothing crazy, I plan to add some more weight in the rear and usually have three more passengers, it won't bother me to sacrifice some top end either, wondering what you guys recommend I have read a lot on what you guys are doing with the 257 and 237's not sure if the 217 is similar or not any feedback would be great!

  9. Hey guys just upgraded from my 09 Avy to a 17 ri 217, don't have the boat home yet but really wondering if it will fit in my garage. Does anyone have a measurement from the ground to the tower height folded down? My garage door is 9 feet.
  10. I should have mentioned that my Avy is a left hand prop rotation so my goofy wave is actually better than regular side, that is partially why I am also thinking of dumping it because I am most of my crew is regular
  11. Hey guys I have a 09 Avy right now have rode this boat for 3 years now and have loved it. We load it up with extra bags and ppll to its max capacity and it throws a great wave. It is getting a little small for us now thinking of upgrading, there is a 15 sv 233 for sale in my area I know all the specs and details just wondering as far as surf wave goes is the 233 going to be a lot better than my Avalanche, or is it worth waiting for a used fs33 or 44 to come up for sale? Any help would be great thanks!
