    FZR/S R&D and Riva intake grate????

    Ok so usually Riva and R&D have virtually the same end product but now for the FZ series it looks like they actually make different grates.
    Has anyone had the chance to test both units ?????
    If so what did you think of each one.

    Lets see if anyone has used a TBM intake too.

    TTT

    I've heard of cavitation issues with the R&D grate. Also heard JD1 modded his. How and what were the results. Is there a post in his thread on it?

    Riva how is the hookup in chop? Does it suffer the cavitation issues like the R&D has been reported to have?

    TBM, how is the hookup with it? I notice it doesn't have the outer wings like the Riva and R&D. How does this affect it?

    Wow, not much testing going on.

    Maybe I should ask which intake grate you are running? R&D or Riva ?
