    Rxp handling

    Hey guys, I bought my Rxp not too long ago, and love it, my only problem is the way it handles in rough water, before I had a gpr and although lighter I felt like it handled better in the chop (more control) maybe it's because my ski is stock but anytime I'm in choppy water and I go over 40 mph it starts to come out of the water and it doesn't come out of the water evenly like the gpr comes out kinda sideswiping left and right and it gets hard to hang on to it as it feels like if it will throw you off.. My question, Is this normal? Also are There any mods I can do to make it better in that department?? Thanks guys !

    It's not an easy job but the Riva ride plate improved my handling quite a bit. You can search up on installation tips and cooling conversion methods.

    Definately gonna look into it, because most of my riding is done in the ocean so it really bothers not being able to ride like I want to.. Thanks

    Have you tried a R&D grate @ all ? The Riva one pretty much sucks for any chop.

    Skat props keep the pump loaded a little better. The RXP is not a rough water ski so you are a bit limited.

    It sounds like your OPAS system is clogged up. Either block the paddels up w/ some PVC pipe (very cheap & easy fix) or get some block offs (expensive, but a nice handling upgrade).
