    Riva Rideplate results

    Had a chance to test a Riva rideplate on a turbo RXP and was very pleased with the results. Can't say how much faster it is then a stock plate but it is a solid 1.5 faster then the OEM modded open loop plate.

    Plate also handled great!!! Excellent predictability at all speeds. Has a nice inside lean to it making it more controllable and never gave me that hook feeling the other open loop plate has. At anytime no matter how aggresive the turn was I could pop it out and redirect with very little effort.

    Speeds were in the upper 80s with this boat and water conditions I considered fair for salt water. Also next day comparison with same conditions. Back to back is impossible due to adhesive curing time. If anything the OEM modded plate had a little better water the day before.

    Only drawback that was a little disapointing was having to clearence the plate for the 2" extension. They should have thought about this since they sell both products.

    Was this an older (round) nozzle like on a 05 RXP?

    The 07 and newer nozzles and Riva pro series nozzles have a flat bottom and from what I understand no clearancing is needed when using the Riva plate and pump extension kit.

    The nozzle was ground flat as well. Very use to this on the GPRs. This is one of the first plates however.

    Whatever the minor inconvenience its well worth it IMO!!

    I rode breon's ski and was extremly impressed in how it handled. Anyone tried one on an X ski yet? Wondering about bucking.
