Re: Prop for top performance

Can't answer about other brands of props but I'd recommend a bit more more pitch to get the rpms down to around 5500-5600 rpms which may give slightly better speeds. Propping is an art so try various ones to find out which is best all around for your application.


Often you may need 2 props, one for light loads and top speeds, and another for heavier tournament loads on hot muggy summer days.

The information offered here is only general in nature and should not be construed as complete factory approved procedures, techniques, or specifications. Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation, or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.
