Riva Free Flow vs. R&D High Flow
Sorry for my ignorance, but I am assuming that you would choose one or the other....Riva Free flow OR the R&D High Flow. In the pictures at the greenhulk store, the Riva Free Flow looks to be about twice the length. I know that the Free flow is known for the drone, but does anybody have experience with both set ups?

i used to have the riva free flow, if you leave your rubber curtains in to me it wasnt to bad.. it was dealable. i had the curtains out on mine and it droned like crazy at lower rpms like 5k and below. but cruisin on plane it was fine... no wake zones loud lol i dunno. i got rid of it and put the rear exit on and i love it. its louder with no drone and crisper sound.. but its all about how much sound u want to tolerate i guess.. goodluck

I use the Riva Free Flow and I find the drone not all that bad. When I am doing 3000rpm in a "go slow" area I tilt the nose all the way down, this keep more water in the transom/exhaust area making it a bit more quiet.
The best benefit you get from the Riva exhaust is that it clears up the back of the ski, easier for maintenance. Is is of very little horse power value.

Here's my 2 cents Chuck. Either stick with the modded OEM free flow exhaust (Tommy Jordan's), or go with the thru hull. The OEM gives you the performance while still stock, or the thru hull performs and sounds Bad-Ass. The only draw back is your dealer will shit a Sea-doo if you take it in for warranty work with a 3 inch hole in the rear
Ive been using the OEM mod this whole time and love it. Either one works great with out that stupid drone.

Awesome. Thanks guys for all the info. I will probably go with the Tommy Jordan set up soon. I am saving up for a new intercooler so this option is inexpensive and effective....thanks.

I prefer the TJ exhaust as well. Sleeper effect.
