    ISO Used RIVA Stinger-II or III for GP1200R

    Would rather not pay full price. Kinda steep IMHO.

    I had one on my old XLL that I had working great; came up with a new way to route the water using a Jetworks valve, it worked a lot like the classic Jetworks mod. There was a time you could pick them up for $100 or so, the general consensus was that you would lose 1mph on your top end. I'm pretty sure I got rid of the top end loss with some tuning of my mod, but I didn't do enough back to back testing to prove it. I used to have another one laying around, I've always threatened to put it on the Crayola and make the worlds fastest Stinger ski LOL.... I might still have it somewhere, I'll have to look.

    The stock stinger gets in the way of accessing the carbs. I believe the RIVA Stinger will allow better access without performance loss.

    The Riva Stingers and Turbo tube were introduced to get rid of the bottom end performance problem with the 1200Rs. The down side is it lost rpms on top end. The introduction of the Jetworks mod by Fercho so many years ago gave us the best of both worlds, great bottom end and well as top end performance.

    If you are after easy carb access, or just building a wave jumper with great bottom end, then thats the way to go.
    If you want top and bottom performance, the stick with the stock pipe, with D-plate and Jetworks mod.
