Thread: R&D vs. RIVA

  1. #1

    R&D vs. RIVA

    I was recently looking for some relatively cheap bolt-on items from RIVA and R&D. I was wondering if anyone has any opinions on who's products are better?

    These are the products I was looking at:

    Power Filter...RIVA $225 or R&D $174
    Crankcase Ventilator...R&D $30
    Pro Steering Nozzle extended 15mm...R&D $145
    Intake Grate...RIVA $130 or R&D $120

    My question with these products are which ones do you recommend, RIVA or R&D? And what ones you think are worth getting?

    Riva all the way.

    Richard (way2fast) here on the forum is a Riva dealer and beats the pants off of Rivas retail price.

    Awesome, I love low prices.

    But I was wondering about the crankcase ventilator and pump nozzle. Anyone running these and how good do they work?

    The breather is junk. Make your own oil catch can/breather like this one here: http://greenhulk.net/?p=53

    I hear the R&D nozzle works well. Good product if you are a racer. Waste of money for a recreational rider.

    So if im on a $500 budget, what are some quick and easy upgrades that you would recommend?

    I've got college next year, so Im tight on money and parent approval.

    500 bucks....

    Riva Intake Grate
    Build your own air intake
    Solas prop
    power pipe (i'd say thru-hull exhaust, but it'll put u over 500 mark)
    fill ride plate holes and trim reverse bucket (practically free, 10 bucks)
