    The Riva wedge is 2 degrees while the R & D is 2.5 degrees ..You might want to think about getting the VTS rod with the wedges.it will help with the hole from what i have read..the wedge with out the vts rod isnt gonna give you as good hole shot ..I would think you would see speeds between 71 and 73 mph with the mods you have and are planning to do..
    Good luck

    I would not bother with the wedge and go with the riva pro series 4 inch air intake.And a rotax racing sc impeller i think hulk has them on sale.

    You also have to remember that theres a 600 dollar price difference between the wedge+Rod and the riva intake and rr impeller.

    i never like the wedge on the rxp didn't like the way it handle i could never c a mph gain over triming up, i have one 4 my gtx but haven't put it on yet so i might try it on the rxp this spring after all the new mods have gone on, a back 2 back test
