Loc: Between Rayburn and Toledo
I just switched from a high five to a 25 Tempest on my champion 202 with a 200 Mercury efi. I expected to see an increase in speed but it has stayed about the same. With the high five I was turning 5500-5600 rpm and going 57-58 mph. With the new prop I'm only turning 5200 and 56-57 mph. Could changing motor height be what I need to do?
I have a champ 202 with a 200 pro-v yamaha. I tried a 25 and 24 tempest. the 24 is on it permanently. Gets out the hole fantastic and top end is good enough for me. Mine turns 5700 at ~64 top end with the 24.
