    Drilling holes in rear of grab bar for better air?

    Any gain from drilling holes in the rear grab handle to get better air for the rear air?
    or does it just let more water in?

    I am racing closed course and right now it seems pretty protected from other skis spray,

    I know others have done this and say it helps, I have yet to do it but plan on doing it. The riva filter is also very restrictive too, I'm going to replace the fabric with window screen.

    It definitely helps bro. And if you use Riva rear air replace with window screen as suggested.

    I never had the riva window screen, I put a 30 x 30 stainless steel mesh, over the back entrance which is U.S. Coast Gaurd Approved for flame screen and marine backfire issues, I wanted it to be race legal,
    I will drill out mine tonight,
