    Pump shoe insert

    Ok I was advised with the upgrades I am doing to my 06 RXP which are, riva through hull exhuast, riva power filter intake, riva opas block off, solas 14/19r, riva top loader intake grate, that i should also invest in a pump shoe insert.

    Is there any benifit or gains that i will see from this with the upgrades i am doing or would it be a waste of money right now and something to do when i decided to do more the the ski?

    The gains are in the wallet and time saved from having to pull the ride plate, grate, and pump assembly when replacing the pump shoe after it shreds at the leading edge. This is a great add on for protecting the shoe and in my opinion is a must even for stock machines. If you ever have to change the shoe for not installing it I promise you'll kick yourself in the azz and will surely remember this post! No speed gains at all..........

    +1 on the girdle protector. I decided one day that it might be a good idea to order and install the shoe protector for the Ole Ladie's machine, was damn glad I did because the shoe had just started to swell up towards the tunnel, a little longer and the incoming water would have then been able to get in and under the leading edge of the shoe causing the shoe to rip apart.
