    If you ride mostly smooth water, stay with the stock grate.

    I agree unless you can find a R&D pro 785 intake grate ( I believe it is the best intake grate ever offered for for my generation of Polaris), works better than stock in all types of water that i have seen personally. i installed one on my sltx 1050 and could tell the difference in smooth water as well on takeoff and it kept the pump fully loaded in rough water as well!! I am so impressed with it i just bought for my SL1050 on ebay for $38 shipped, last fall i had to pay $76 shipped for one for the sltx 1050!! IMHO I think they are better than stock even in smooth water on the 3 seater because of the larger hull and extra weight!

    i don't know and explain it, but he ruined it by cutting the center out, it was better with the third vein (my personal belief is with the third vein it hooks up better on smooth water). You can find them all the time without the third vein, but several builders have had better luck with the third vein than without it!

    Third "vein" if you will, was on the PRO 785 from the factory.

    The R&D without the third one, came in 2 versions.

    The 650 and the 750.

    The 750 used a bigger/more aggressive scoop which decreases top speed in smotth water.

    The 650 is slightly smaller, and is the one most recommended for everyone to use.

    Is it possible the one you are referring to is the 750 version?

    All I know is that i was told by several builders to stay with the stock R&D intake grate on the pro 785 as it works for all water conditions better than anything else! i have personally seen better responses without doing anything else to my sltx 1050 and it didn't slow it down (I believe that is what the third vein is for) and it is still a scooped intake but a little less agressive than some others, but generates speeds in takeoff and full throttle by what i have seen.

    P.S. Here is a good 6 vane stainless stator for you, i was going to buy but am short on money right now!

    Hope it helps, and should also give you some gains as well!!

    Here is another one on Ebay, even though he is high on his price for a used one. He has make an offer option. I paid $76 shipped on ebay for my first one shipped last fall, and i just bought one 2 weeks ago for $38 shipped on ebay for my 2nd ski (it's not as clean as the first, but will polish up easily)

    Here is the ebay link for it: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=STRK:MEWAX:IT
