    Motor Operation RPMS

Rated:

 Just finished the break in period on the 2012 Merc 60hp EFI. (2012 Tracker 175TXW) When trying to find my sweet spot, I had the boat ful out going at 5100 RPMS, when applying the tilt to find the sweet spot, rpms jumped to 6200 and the boat speed increased about 5-7mph. The book says full throttle speed is 5500 - 6000 rpms, is this an average or am I pushing the boat too much with the extra 200 rpms? I did not run it full out/tilt for any length of time a couple of minutes then would back off a bit.


Thanks


Rob
