Buy an intake grate!!!
I have received alot pm's in the past few months and see a few people asking if they need an intake grate and how much speed they will gain/lose and the benefits. I know others will agree when I say. If you have an fzr/fzs , BUY AN INTAKE GRATE FIRST!!
I see no disadvantages to any of the available grates and personally the r&d aquavein has been great for us.We have had these skis stuff at only 69mph, some not until 75+ but at some point it will happen if you mod and run the stock grate. It is not worth it and I hate to see someone finally get really hurt. Firstly I don't want to see anyone get hurt ever and secondly it would be terribly damaging to our sport. If you are gonna spend the money to mod, spend less then $200 and be safe.

My point is for the people like our customer who got bucked off today. He spent atleast $1500 so far on his ski and even with all the advice he just refused to buy an intake grate. After loading his ski he came back to the store, limped in and bought a grate.

The R&D intake grate will also keep the ski hook up to the water a lot more than the stock one specially in rough conditions.
My ski hit the water its first time with the R&D grate installed, I was not taking any chances. I have fallen out of skis at over 65 MPH and is not fun at all.
