Thread: rxp handling
09-08-2011, 11:07 PM #1
so i have an 07 rxp everything is stock except for riva washers. im so used to my gtx with no opas that im almost getting tossed off the rxp when chopping the throttle. i would like to keep the opas on and was wondering do the block ups solve this problem. had some scary situations chopping the throttle while turning doing over 60mph not good

Maybe think about not chopping the throttle. It is not the OPAS that is causing the buck. You are apparently stuffing the pump when you chop the throttle. Something isn't setup properly for you to be experiencing this. You can increase your handling with removal of the OPAS.

OPAS.......Ewww. Get rid of those training wheels brotha!!!
Turning 1 o 1
Wrap throttle on
Power out of turn, hopefully still on ski

yeah i know how to ride its just the rxp is a little more touchy. so do the block ups help stop the ski from bitting so hard when off the throttle ?

You should NEVER chop the throttle. Not only under certain conditions it will overstuuf the pump (and buck you off the ski) but its also very stressful on the supercharger washers--cermaic or metal. Will losen the preload on the washers and you have to re-set them more often. I had several RXPs in the past--all over 80 MPH with OPAS still on and no handling problems. Good Luck.

I never really found mine dug in off throttle. But removing the OPAS should stop what your referring to.
My ski is 80 plus (06 RXP) I'm not sure I've ever had any bucking issues, even when chopping some throttle...... Violent! For sure..... But isent that part of the fun when turning!!! Chop, turn, throttle to turn out of it?! (ok not so fast you end up getting thrown) but if its not near that point, where's the fun?

Why not let off more progressively, I often let off off progressively when going in to turns etc unless I am really going for it around the bouy etc. Best advise is think ahead what you are doing and ride accordingly.
