    05 gp1300r airbox cover missing and riva efi broke

    Hi guys, looking some help on this here goes.......Bought 2005 GP13R with Riva stage 1 last year and went to run it and it wouldnt go over 4000rpm and Riva EFI controller just blinking yellow light so i removed it and ski ran good....Then i heard a loud sucking sound from the engine room so i was looking and noticed that the intake tubes and the cover for the airbox was completely removed.

    The previous owner said that they removed those to give the ski more power and top end speed and he cant find them anywhere now and thinks that he may have tossed the cover accidentally because he's had the ski this way for several years....The ski seems to run fine and plugs are dark brown.

    Should i be running like this, wait for the new controller, get an airbox cover and filter or what as i am concerned it might get a lean condition......

    Running one without some kind of flame arrestor is dangerous. you may never have any issues but get a fuel leak and backfire before you know it your ski burns up or blows up with you on it.

    If your going to put the fuel controller back on it then go with some good flame arrestors. look in the classifies on the forum someone may have some.

    I personally use a lot of Riva stuff its a little pricey but looks and works good. there's a lot of stuff out there i think R&D carry's them too.
