    Here's what ive found on the different grates, i know ill also need to seal the pump housing when doing the top loading grate, i manily use the Ski in the sea and knowa top loader will help me in the chop etc


    Worx Intakegrate

    The WORX Maxiloader is the first mod anyone should do to their PWC. Among the benefits you'll receive are; reduced porpoising, no or minimal top speed loss (up to 3mph gain in choppy conditions!) and greater control & turning capability. As used by Worx riders in the US National Tour, WORX Maxiloader grates set an industry performance standard.


    Riva

    Riva’s race bred intake grates eliminate impeller spin and cavitation while delivering improved acceleration by loading water more effectively into your pump unit. Deep rails improve stability and handling.


    R&D

    R&D Aquaveins eliminate cavitation and allow for quicker acceleration with improved performance and handling. R&D Aquaveins are the # 1 selling intake grate in the world.


    Solas

    Solas Top Loading Intake Grates work well in rough conditions, they are economically priced and made from a strong powder coated alloy

    when i had my fxho i tried the riva, r & d and solas
    there was no noticeable speed diference between them
    and i could not feel any difference in hookup
    i still have a brand new riva grate on the shelf ,was replaced under warrenty and never bothered refiting it
    i also have a slightly used (less than 10 hours)R&D or solas can't remeber which one i left on the ski sitting there
