    Cos it moves the pump back 2" and 2" seems to be the magic number for seadoo and yamaha ski as far as addressing them unhooking all the time.

    think of it this way, it keeps 2 more inches of the pump in the water which although does not sound like much , is enough to fix the problem

    Okey i see,i always thought that when it comes unhooked was because it takes in air in the water intake.

    Yes, on a T-X I think would not be a problem but what about on the RXP?

    Surely Riva has tested it but no word.

    I run speedfreeks plate with Riva SB and trimed all the way down could make the ski pourpose in slight chop. THat was with riva block offs.
    Its possible the full length block offs would fix that.

    I have heard of some issues with pourposing with riva plate on some rxp and rxp-x, so that makes me think it could be an issue with the combination. I am sure some testing and shimming of plate could fix the problem but thats why i am on the sideline with what i got for the time being.

    By the way, back on topic the extention is night and day difference on the RXP in the hookup catagory!!! PERIOD!!!!!
