    Exclamation Got My New RXP!

    Well I finally sold my '06 GTI and picked up my '06 RXP yesterday. Unfortunately I won't be able to ride it until next weekend, long story. Then I have to go through the tedious task of the ubiquitous "Break -In".

    I can't wait to get started on the mods. Since the day I purchased my GTI and saw the RXP I knew I had to have it. I know a lot of you say you don't like the bling of the chrome but I think it simply looks Bad [email protected]! Black is my color and the red is softer unlike the '07's.

    I considered waiting on the new Kawi but I personally like the 2 seater RXP. Of course I have not seen the Kawi in person but it looks huge from the pics I've seen! So what it's got 250HP, there are tons of mods for the RXP and we all know about it. I don't like buying anything that is a first model year. Yeah it may out accelerate, the RXP but according to my dealer sources top speed will be about the same. Keeping in mind that underlying agreement between the manufacturers and the Coast Guard...

    I look forward to discussing my first set of mods once I get 10 hrs on it. Until then I'll just keep surfing the forums to see what everybody is up to.

    Ride On!

    Forgot to ask...I know you already have like a kajillion mod ideas going through your head. So just get it out of ya and list what they are. It'll make that 10 hour break in go that much slower.

    Thanks RXPkid,

    Here's what I'm leaning towards:

    > Metal washers for the S/C
    > Fill ride plate holes
    > Trim reverse bucket
    > Riva stg 1 kit
    > Jerry's Pro Series O.P.A.S. block offs

    To get me started

    Awesome man that is great.

    And I too think I would not even ride it with out having Jerry install the washers.
    Even if it is under warranty, it is a mess to be without a ski when you could have prevented it's failure.
    $150 bucks from Jerry and it''s done.

    To get me started
    Please do me one favor and don't trim the reverse bucket. If you don't think you're going to use it much, just get rid of the bucket.

    Save me the pain of looking at another annihilated bucket and steering nozzle. I think after trimming the reverse bucket, some guys had trouble with the bucket flopping down on its own, myself included, and Im not sure why. My story was the extreme case.
