    Riva Exhaust Outlet... Polished Billet or Black?

    just opened mine up to read directions and whatnot and check out my parts.... the exhaust outlet is black, not silver/ billet aluminum.

    what color is yours?

    ALSO, i'm missing the last page of directions so i dont have the template for isntall on RXT... i only got the template for install on RXP... directions say "see page 8 for RXT" but i only got up until page 7.... anyone scan the template for me and e-mail it ror post it so i dont need to call up riva for em.

    Thanks

    Nils used to make the exhaust tips for them (silver) and then Riva knocked them off and began making their own (black)

    cool... thanks guys. no big deal, was just curious. the black looks pretty sharp as well.

    I'll check the riva site for the directions, didn't even think of that, DUH

    Jerry... i see on other thread u devising a rear air intake contraption? i'm out in the garage as i type this brainstorming... the RXT is different since we have the mid-section wit the air vent... but i dont know if enough air flows inbetween the two seat pieces or now... gotta modify the mid-piece and/or seats maybe if i dont feel air flow is adequate. interested to see what you come up with on the RXP and i'll see if i can retrofit it.

    Yea, i did the mod and tried it out today. Not exactly happy with it as it didn't really net me any gains. In fact, i lost about 50 RPM's. I guess due to the tremendous heat in that area under the seat. You just cant beat a good ole cold air intake that ingests air at the front of the ski.

    i completely agree.... even if i sucked outside air from the vent... it's gonna be fairly warm.. that was my other concern. the "short run" is completely negated by the air quality

    i wish the RXT had some sort of mini storage in the top of the hood like urs does.... right now the only promising idea i've seen visually is like what two2currupt has with his hood/intake combo

    If you dont like the black tip, have it sandblasted....

    Try to find someone with a silver one that wants to trade...
