    Best intake grate for RXP-X 255?

    Hi,

    Ive got a 2009 RXP-X and the intake grate has sheered off so I'm getting another one.

    I ride mainly on the ocean with the occasional lake riding.

    The ski has RIVA Stage 1.

    Should I stick with a stock one or go for a different one?

    Thanks

    R&D seems to give the best speed increase.

    How much difference would I notice? What's better for riding in the ocean?

    Intake grate sheered off. WTH

    RIVA Stage 1. Did it have a RIVA intake grate also?

    The R&D is the safest for high speed. WORX better hook up, but burns more fuel while cruising and stuff sooner than a R&D grate. R&D makes a more aggressive grate too, but I don't know anything about it and I don't comment about stuff I know Jack S about.

    I know, I looked under it before and was shocked!

    Both sides of the intake grate are still bolted up, but the whole rest of it has literally snapped off!

    The remains don't look like a RIVA intake grate, I think it was stock.

    R&D AquaVein. Is that the right one?

    There's 2 options, one says double deep for racing only and the other says for recreational.

    What's the difference?

    Will it be good in chop?

    Sounds like you've been doing some wave jumping and cracked the OEM grate causing it to fail (just speculation). Either way I think the recreational R&D grate that JP is referring to has proven to be a rock solid grate. The runners on the grate are beefed up compared to the others mentioned. It's a great all around grate as it performs well in most conditions. The Riva grate is best for speed and for a stage 1 or 2 kit will perform well. If your planning to do some jumping go with the recreational R&D. Stay away from the Worx as in my opinion it's a POS!

    Never seen a OEM PX grate break. Now a RIVA I have seen break. Take a picture for us and post it. Betting its a RIVA. I have a brand new stock one, well has a few hours only on it.

    ADD: unmodded OEM PX grate.

    I liked the Worx in rough water, the R&D in flat. When I say rough I am talking 3-4 footers on lake Erie. Down here the R&D is better for top end. As JP said, the Worx stuffs sooner. I had issues at 75+ with two PRV.
