Riva Stage 1 on a 06 RXP
I installed the Stage 1 + the free flow exhaust last week and GPS'd at 69.5 MPH full & half tank. Also installed the metal SC washers. Oil is just below the full mark, wear ring is perfect and the Ski has 20 hours. I run on salt water in near perfect conditions. Best RPM has been 7840 far from the 8100 Riva claims. I did 68 stock at 7960 RPM before the mods.
It definately acellerates stronger but I was expecting more top end. What advice can you guys give me?

First of all, welcome Antiguan RXP!
Crawl under your ski, and look around.
-Is the speedo hanging too low?
-Did you fill in the bolt holes?
-The RXP needs air. Do a run with the hood propped GENTLY open with a towel, and the bucket out, ON SMOOTH water, and see if the rpms go up.
-Talk to Jerry about your prop.
-Take the pump cone off.

sounds like a 15/20
But then again, your stock rpms sound a bit low too.

one of the blades on the prop might be out of whack

Had the same problem after installing my stage 1..Like Mark said check all the above ...If all is good then you may need to have the prop tweeked..If you dont know how there is a how to in the tech section and if you still dont understand or feel comfortable tweeking the prop then I know Jerry does it for a small fee and does a awsume job..

Riva Stage 1 on a 06 RXP
I noticed that the trim is useless above neutral, speed drops off big time.
The VTS was disasembled to install the free flow could the settings change ?
Should the Reverse bucket mod help this problem?
Do the ride plate holes really make a difference when filled?
How does the impeller bearing survive without the nose-cone?
I installed the finger throttle conversion and had to adjust the cable to ensure full throttle. Does the throttle body end limit suggest full open butterfly?
Going to try opening up the hatch tommorow. Hope to see the 72 with this set-up...

i dont suggest you take the nose cone off your impeller since you run your ski in salt water.
