Riva Intake Grate Issue Again!!!!!!!
You have to be kidding me! This is the Second Riva Intake grate now that has broke on me! Yes all bolts were removed prior to pulling! They make this piece way to thin! Anyone else have this issue before. I know a few locals have

I had one and it broke once...... Once is all it took, never again will I use a Riva grate. It will break just where yours did and then it will look like the 2nd post. You'd be foolish to use another one.

This grate is only probably 2 months old since i last replaced due to it being broken and 5 hours run time. No revisions on the grate. They have been told in the past to make it thicker there but refuse to. They dont think its a issue. With all the accidents lately I dont want to risk running it with just the two bolts. I;m sure it would probably be ok. But not worth it!

When I had my '07 RXP and was using the Riva grate, I noticed during install that there was a gap between the center bolt hole on the grate and the plate mounting tab once the grate was installed. I believe that when mounting the Riva grate, it is possible to tighten the center bolt to a point that it causes it to crack and will ultimately break. I shimmed the area between the plate and the center hole of the grate and did not have any issues.
