    lower the stock ones 20-23 mm and you have the best sponsons for a rxp-x.

    yes i have a 2006 rxp and lowered them 23mm for racing. 18-20mm is advised for rec riding. james bushell used the lowered oem sponsons on his race boat a few years ago.

    +1... How can you lower the stock sponsons? Slot the bolt holes?

    i took the sponsons off, made a template and drilled new holes. there are more threads about it do a search and you will find it.

    Im in the same boat (no pun intended) - I am looking for a set of sponsons for my 09 RXP-X but I don't think I want to lower my stock ones. Id like to be able to adjust them depending on the type of riding I'm doing for the day. ex; a rip on the river, or a CC race. With all the brands on the market, WORX, R&D, Riva, Beach house, what, if any do people like in a adjustable sponson set up? Thanks

    I took a used pair of rivas and used the backing plates and cut my own sponsons out of starboard material, simple,
    the first design worked too good and would throw you off in closed course racing,
    I then went with a les cooke design that has been working good,
    which was half of the sawtooth design on the right

    skigolfnut, what was wrong with the Riva ones? were they a big improvement over stock?
