I like the Riva, that is what most people here use if they change.

i have the Riva grate on my 03 GTX SC and i noticed a big difference in rough water. If you don't ride in a lot of rough water you would be better off modifying your stock one. The aftermarket grates are nice but most of them cost you .5 to 1 mph top end.

For an RXP the Riva grate cannot be beat.

I really believe (after looking at both loaders) that the R&D loader would be best for rough conditions since it appears to have the capability to stuff the pump more. But I ain`t tried it yet.

Yep, R&D is better for hookup and buoy course racers. The best all around grate is the Riva. It scrubs the least speed and gives adequate hookup.

I've been running the R&D grate since August of last year. I am 100% happy with it. I ride in water conditions variering from glass to rough and I never had a problem with hook-up. I know some people say it scrubs top end speed, but I lost no speed at all with it. Everyone says the Riva grate is the way to go, but I personally have yet to see any advantage of it over the R&D. I'm not saying that the Riva grate is bad, I'm just not convinced yet.
All the guys that I ride with (rendog, the rock, turbo todd) have the Riva grate and I dont see that they hook-up any better than I.
In fact!!! The Rock and I raced againist each other in the drag races at FRS #3. I beat him because he was not able to hook-up and I was. We were in the same type of water condition and he has alot more mods than I, so go figure...
