Modding RXP 04'
So I will be buying a 2004-2005 RXP in the next few weeks or the off season. I'm thinking about going with the following mods:
Riva Power Filter Kit
Top Loader Intake Grate
O.P.A.S Block Off
Rebuild SC'er with 200hr Rebuild Kit
What do you guys think? I'm looking at gaining some speed but not looking to do anything major to the engine internally. I just want a little edge over the stock ski. I'm coming from a 2001 GP1200R.

If you're leaning towards speed, I'd hold off a while on the wedge, sponsons and block-offs. Put that money towards any other bolt-ons etc for actual speed gains. Opinions vary on those types of items...my opinion is that after owning mine for almost 7yrs, I still haven't found a reason to buy those items.

I think you can look at imposter, boost a holic, green bullet, blk turbo, myself and see we're all running very similar setups. I would say r&d grate, external ic, x charger, 48lb injectors, riva rear air or 4" fizzle would be first. You don't need sponsons. These stockers will toss you in a heartbeat. It's like asking what's better ford or Chevy.

Alright. So I will go with a 4" fizzle kit.
What's a good grate for flat water?
What handling difference does the wedge make?
Looks like I'm going 14/19 impeller.
What would be good OPAS block offs?
How is a X Charger and 48lbs injectors going to effect reliability. I would probably do a ET127 drop in wheel.

The Riva grate is fast and gives good traction without much drag...the better traction will make you feel faster since you won't be coming unhooked so easily/often as the stock one. It's just not recommended for 80mph +
42s are good for x charger, especially if you're not doing external IC. I have over 190hrs with my x charger and 42s with an external IC...the main key for engine reliability is that you continue to spin the stock RPMs (stock ECU).

Riva it is... How are you doing fuel wise? Much worse? I am keeping the stock ECU. The ski will have roughly 130HRS

My fuel economy is only noticeably decreased when I'm sitting on multiple WOT passes (which is to be expected). But cruising around fuel economy is very tolerable.
You should monitor your fuel if you go with an external IC also. Otherwise, you're very safe there.

I'll be passing on the SC'er then, I like speed but I like fuel economy more.
