True R&D Intake Grate on stock boat results... 2009 RXP-X Stock Must read if interest
My 09 Rxp-x was completely stock and with a 240 lb. rider I did 68.9 mph @ 8020 RPM's (on my etrax Garmin GPS)... I just installed the (non closed course) R&D intake grate (160.00 from this site).
Here are my results...
Ski now went 72.5 mph @8120 RPM Just over half a tank of gas, smooth water
It has incredible hole shot also... So much more noticed on hole shot over the stock grate... I can't say enough what a difference there is... If you don't have one and am thinking of it... DO IT.. The increase for only 160.00 is so worth it...
NO OTHER MODS YET... I plan to fill the ride plate holes next and see what it will do also... I'll post results with the holes filled soon!
One happy camper!
Thanks Tron for testing and tuning with me!

Thats just about the right speed for R&D grate only. Plug the rideplate holes and put some Ultra Black down the sides of rideplate and smooth it out. You should be in the 73's after that. It will take a few more things to break 75.

Just ordered a 4 inch fizzle catch can now... I'll install it when it arrives and update (Gonna do a custom 4 inch air intake with the Fizzle catch can) Yes, I know I'll probably have to get a bigger impeller also... That will be next...

OK, I just ordered my 4 inch Fizzle air intake (and the catch can) I will install (actually TRON will probably do it since he is the MAN when it comes to speed!) it and update results when it gets here... Probably next week... I also am getting the custom block offs from Tron too... I will do one and test then add the other and test (and post). Now I can't wait... I originally didn't plan on doing anything to my ski but as you said, I'm hooked..
