    I tried the Riva ones and was not very happy with them. So far the OEM ones work the best for me all round use. Tommy Jordan

    From hat I've been hearing the RIVA is no good. I actually called them and they told me not to buy there sponsons and leave it stock. I've been doing some research because I myself would like to get a pair, and the best one I've heard of so far is the Macc Racing. The R&D is kinda in between the two but I myself would also like to know what is the best sponsons for closed course racing? Thank You

    If it turned any better than it does with stock sponsons I think I would have clean my pants out!!! I cannot get over how well my FZS turns at speed, and it doesnt tire you at all! I think I could CC race with this thing and dominate a novice race!!! And I have never raced a closed course event in my life!!! As long as the competition didnt have the FZ's!!!!

    Im really digging how well my R&D sponsons are working on my ski. It just doesnt slide. The VX I plate I put on makes the ski handle weird in my eyes. Gonna try the stock spacers under it today just to see what it does.

    And speed wise, between the stock sponsons and the R&D did you notice any increase or decrease and would you recommend the R&D for cc racing ????

    I love my R&D sponsons. Great for offshore riding that we have and can be fairly agressive. I have no desire to ever change them out. However, my comparison is only based only on riding with the stock sponsons.
