Rxp rear air keeping water out
I am going to be intalling a riva rear air intake on my 2006 rxp,
I am bouy racing here in region 5 in Texas,
What is the best way to keep water from going in?
every now and then, for a brief moment I get behind another ski, some water of course splashes me in the face,
I just don't want water to pour down the opening,
I was going to get the screen set up, but any other ideas?

Not much you can do. That's why it is not for recreational use.

YOur best bet would to have gone with a 4 inch front air intake...your racing conditions will provide a bad situation for a rear air setup....There is a red flow rite that comes with the rear air..it will aid in helping keep some water out but wont keep it all out..it is very restricting for the air also..like i said,best bet for you is a 4 inch front...

I was thinking of the 4" front, but I pulled the trigger on the rear air,
We have a machine shop here at work and I was thinking of making some sort of rear facing scoop out of the parts left over from the stock system,

I would not worry about it bro. I had more injestion issues with front air. You have to have some huge splashes to get it in there bro.

A little water in the intake (and a do mean very little) shouldnt hurt anything. no matter how you face the "scoop" you will get water in there. the charger pulls a lot of volume of air and anything else that is close to the intake.
