    RXP-X Riva Ride Plate Buck Problem

    I recently install JD1 open loop and Riva ride plate and now regurlarly experience bucking. The buck occurrs when I chop the throttle at speeds over 74 mph. I have seen reccomendations to install pump relief but can't find a system to purchase. Recently contacted JD1 and he said that his system can't prevent the buck with Riva ride plate on P-X. He also said his pump relief system is now delayed and would not be available for awhile.

    My question is there anyone who has found a pump relief solution for Riva rideplate on P-X?

    Other handling mods are Riva pump extension and RE block-off's

    I'm sorry to hear that man. I've heard that's why Riva doesn't push past Stage I on their RXP-X platforms as its too easy to induce buck, especially by adding lift. I have an RXP-X and I am being careful not to add lift when trying to add speed on mine for that exact reason. You might contact forum member Duke as I know he has done some work in this area before. Also, the R&D grate supposedly removes the buck up to 80 MPH on stock rideplate skis. It might help in your situation, but I don't have any experience with it. Good luck and be careful.

    the ski will nose dive in this case on decelleration and if you are not ready you will get bucked off like from a horse.

    I thought people were warned not to use the RIVA open loop plate on the PX. Atleast I saw that warning right here on GH.

    I don't know what intake grate you are running. I don't think the pump ext or RE BOs are helping you any either.

    The bucking I experience is like running over a log at high speed. The nose goes down and back of ski jumps up which causes a sudden decelaration. The back of ski can also kick slightly to the right. At 74 mph I can stay on the ski but my chest slams against the handlebar cross bar. What really concerns me is if this happens riding two up.

    There is a warning using the Riva rideplate with P-X but the warning states that you must use a pump relief system. Problem is that I cannot find a pump relief system to install.

    If you ease off the throttle instead of "chopping it"--it should not buck. This will hold true if it only bucks when you chop it. I am n ot sayin g it wont buck in the upper 70s while on WOT. Some do and some dont at 77 and above.
