    Splash Guards and wave jumping!!

    First off hello from the U.K....I've been tunning in to this site for a couple of months now and have learnt lots about the rxp,you guys really know your stuff.....thats enough ass kissin
    Right on to my problems/mods ...05 rxp r&d grate,r&d filter,nopas,13/19 solas,rideplate holes filled and my last addition 2deg wedge.Most/all of the time i ride in the chop, well the solent to be exact! the grate and nopas really made a big improvent in the hook up and stability but dam this thing is a wet ride...so I fitted(with their instructions) the hydroturf splash guard...dry ride for 5mins then ripped off!!.Really liked the dry ride so ordered the jettrim which you all rave about..but this time fitted as in franko's instructions...much better this time it lasted 3 sessions and look what happened.Should i try again or just exept the fact that these are no good when wave jumping!
    cheers jon

    If you want a dry ride get an RXT, you're going to get wet on the rxp, no if's and's or but's because that is just how it rides. WET! I'd forget the splash guard and invest in some good eye protection.

    welcome to the forums!

    same thing here except it was a drive on dock that ripped it off. It only stayed on like five rides but those five rides were nice and dry.

    I put RIVA splash gaurds on everything, my RXP, my GPR, my three friends RXT's. We ride hard and haven't had a problem. I won't ride an RXP without one, it's way to wet! I've been ridin GPR's for 5 years, they are pretty dry to start. Try adding some more rivets, front and sides.
    Good luck!

    same here ppg style splash guard, it is also very flexible so it might suit your wave jumping better.

    maybe you can get some conveyor belt material and make your own, also maybe put a few ["3" or so] small U shapes in it near the bow/front so when the water pressure builds up it will just get released a little bit and not put so much strain on it and cause it to rip apart


    you see the U shape things on big banner signs that are in the wind all the time so they don't get torn down/blown over


    thats just my 0.02
