    riva ride plate pros cons

    I have an 04 rxp stage 3 rude 2 I have the open loop set up. I'm considering running the riva ride plate. Is there a major issue with over stuffing with the 04s with the riva plate? Anyone experience with the riva plate or.others will be appericated..

    No problems at all with the Riva plate on my 04' with open loop. Have been over 85 on it.

    Put a pump relief setup in there from duke. Great price. When you start putting more and more angle on the plate you increase your chances of stuffing. I would rather be safe than sorry. I didn't like the handling of the riva plate.

    Over stuffing is not an issue on the pre 08 skis,at least not until 90+ Mph....you should be fine with the rideplate..

    I should add that it is the RXPX's that like to stuff.

    I fully agree with the non X boats RXPs NOT stuffing under 93 MPH. I have no idea where that wife's tale came from. It would be a big waste of money for a relief valve on your boat.

    I have to disagree, Jim (speedskixp )bucked at 86+ with Riva plate, I also experienced a small buck running over a boat wake at 89 with OEM plate.

    If you have high hull angle and an aggresive grate setup then you can stuff a rxp.
