Would I Be Ok To Run Rear Air?
I'm running the Riva air right now but would like to run Rear air instead. Would i be ok with my setup running this? I have 42lb rxpx injectors. Also what flo-rites do you recommend.
Thanks guys I haven't kept up with any watercraft material in over a year with my spinal injury. Sorry if this was asked before. Hope all is well with everyone!

Aren't you on the limiter now? a taller prop....deffinately. you list a riva intake now...3"?....you could do a DiY4" up front.
You need to be carefull running a rear air....especially in surf.

i ran my kanaflex all the way up into the air opening for the hull in front of the seat, gets cool air all the time and is protected from the water

To tell you the truth i think I'm off the limiter since I added the adjustable rings. I think i should go with a 15/20 impeller though.
Id like to do the Rear Air. I don't plan on riding any type of rough ocean anymore due to my back injury. Only time i will be riding ocean is when its nice out.
Id like to sell the Riva 3".
What are you thoughts of running lean? Or i should be good till I add a external inter-cooler.

To be honest.....I wouldn't add the rear air till after you've added the 15/20....see what your r's do...then add the rear air. I'm betting you see a solid 100 r's above what your 3" does.
No...i wouldn't sweat running lean till you've added an exIC.
There are plenty of people running rear air in ocean riding....but most run a flo-rite type material for a pre-filter....which is restrictive...almost to the point of equalizing any gains you'd see while upping the intake.
You would be drawing cooler air, regardless though...so....I figure better summer riding anyway.
