    Noise after R&D grate installation on X Boat

    Installed a R&D intake grate on new X boat last week, rode it over the weekend and noticed a new noise. It almost sounds like a ratty ass unshimmed rearend coasting in a car. It sounds like its cavitating at high speed.... But it didnt loose any low end and definetly picked up a few mph and almost a hundred RPM'S

    Anybody have a similar experience with the R&D grate?

    i noticed some noise myself when i put the r&d on. to me sounded similar to yours but same deal, no cavitation and runs good. i consider it a normal noise now

    I had about the same performance result, but did not notice any noise.

    Same here, it just sounds different. I though it was more like a "singing" noise, not sure how to describe it.
    But, the boat never cavitated, and stayed glued to the water much better than the stock grate.

    One of those forced me to purchase a new wear ring. It put a few small nicks in it...
