Scoop grate problem - OEM mod or aftermarket ?
Hey there guys, I slid under the ski today to remove the grate and give it a cut and clean up, to find that the middle support is missing, broken out. Bugger.
It hasnt gone into the impeller, and while i could fabricate cut and shut that part in from another of the blades ill be cutting out, here comes the next question.
Modified OEM ?. or R&D toploader, either standard or cut back a little on the sides of the scoop.
Do they annoy the hulls top end ?. Anyone run one, and can say if its worth it or not ?.

I had a R & D one on my F12x, I thought it made no difference at all to cavitation, slight decrease in top speed, and no noticable benefit on rough water. I have just modified my stock grate, cut bars 2 and 4 out. And am testing it out this weekend

You cut the 2 and 4th bars yes ?. So left the two outers and middle ?. I may mod mine first, but since the middle is broken, i may go with cutting the rest out of the middle one, and the two outers.
