    Why did riva quit making the Rear Air Kit

    I have been away for awhile but on my way back, always wanted one of these back in the day, so what happened?

    Weird I've never ingested water in my home made rear air. Just use a Spectre 4" 45* or 90*, some couplers and a filter. BOOM, rear air on the cheap

    The rear air setup was only applicable for base RXP's, which were dropped from the lineup after 2010...Once the RXP-X came along, it was impossible to run a rear air with the OEM IC in place. The demand for it dropped, so Riva phased it out.

    It was purely lack of demand. As Danny stated the new RXP-X 260 (T3) design pretty much killed the sales.

    Because Seadoo no longer makes that hull any longer. It was replaced with the RXP-X 260
    It's just not a good business move for companies to keep producing parts for skis that are no longer in production.
