All new R&D Pro2 3 bar grate available October 10th - please pre order here
R&D has a newly designed VXR Pro2 grate that will be shipping October 10th. Please pre order here R&D VXR Pro2 Aquanvein Intake Grate [112-18021] - $229.95 : PWCPerformance.com
This new grate will be available by October 10th. I will also have some available at the World Finals at the Jet Connection booth.
The front three rail design, taken from the reliable and SPEED proven R&D FZR intake grate, will sustain speeds over 90+ mph. This new design is bionic strong, just like the popular R&D FZR grate is! We are now excepting pre orders.

Nice, overkill, but proven. 2 bar would have been enough. That 1 bar design is so outdated.
I've often thought of cutting the center bar out of my R&D FZ grate, but so far haven't had any problem of trash getting caught in it.

Would be nice of R&D to take back their faulty product in exchange for these, before someone else gets seriously injured..

I give a lot of credit to R&D. They have a new grate which appears to be much stronger. Obviously it sucks that the original grates broke in the first place, but they have corrected it. Thumbs up from me

That's already been done. R&D has already recalled all of the original VXR grates and replaced them with a stronger version. I read a couple negative posts on the forum about the improved version but i had this grate in my hands and let me tell you it ain't breaking. It's a lot stronger. If you held one in your hands you could see for yourself.
This new 3 bar grate is one they have been working on for a while now and it's for those guys that are pushing a VXR 85 mph or more with a supercharged or turbocharged setup.

Agreed on the overkill but personally I would rather have the overkill confidence of " I cannot break it" when I am running hard in the chop. I will do one of those 3 bars . Yeah, I would like to trade the grate I broke and the other one I bought to replace the broken one even up for the 3 bar design...two sucky ones for one good one ? ...lol

thats a bad looking son of a bitch !!!!!!!!!!

This grate is what we should've had gotten in the first place. My negative thread saved them from getting a lawsuit!!! and I'm sure they are thankful for it. I encourage everyone to send back their grates and demand this upgraded one since this one does look like an upgrade from their previous one. They know they screw the first one and second one up and they should have no problem exchanging them. No company should profit while their loyal customers get hurt, this is my opinion, Julio...
