    Fizzle or Riva? What the better air intake?

    Looking for a 4" intake and see that there is a Fizzle and a Riva. Which one is 1)better and 2) easier to install?

    I see the Fizzle has a catch can and so does Riva. Whats the thoughts on those too?
    I heard people are making their own heat shields, what are they making them out of?

    I have printed all the install directions on the 4" and it looks like the filter end is just fed up in by the fuel tank, should i remove all the factory airbox etc? Does the new filter just mount up in the front??

    Thanks "Doo-ers"

    Fizzle over the 3" Riva intake for sure. No question. I ran the 3", switched to the Fizzle and gained 100 RPMs. No other mods. Heat soak seemed less as well. The Fizzle catch can is a very nice piece as well. Much nicer than the Riva. You can make your own catch can cheap though. There is a how to thread somewhere. The rear air will obviously be better than any front intake, but you run the risk of taking in a little water since it is fed straight outside the hull. I removed all of the stock intake on mine.

    Go riva rear air and keep the pre-filter on. I was even thinking of ordering another pre-filter screen and double them up just in case I let my brother ride it. SOUNDS LIKE A JET BY THE WAY!
    just the sound of the rear air will not make you think twice. The riva catch can is a VERY nice piece. Aesthetic wise, the fizzle looks more custom. As for the riva piece, it looks OEM. The nice part about the riva C/C is you can see when you need to empty it.

    I assumed he was talking front intake since he mentioned the filter by the gas tank. Rear air is better than front, but I have no experience with the rear air. Obviously these guys do though.

    I assumed he didn't know about the rear air assembly so I was trying to give him my opinion on the better air intake. Don't mind me, just trying to help as best as possible bro.

    Good you guys chimed in. I have never run rear air so I don't know much about it. I do know that rear air is always better than front, and if you are going for all it performance and speed rear air is the ticket.

    Go with the Fizzle. It is safer...

    Thanks fella's. I am heading in the front for the air intake, I considered rear air but the way I am riding I would get water in there for sure. I need to know where to route the filter end of the intake, is it right at the very front? And take all of the stock airbox etc out? Some of you have taken the time and built your own compartment separator (heat shield) what have you used? Sounds like the Fizzle will get the extra rpm's I am looking for, just want to find the coolest air in the compartment as I can.
    Cheers!
