    a little better...

    Okay...I installed the Lowes intake yesterday. that brings my list of mods up to...

    2* wedge
    SS ring
    Riva grate
    washers
    4" intake

    No gps...still...only a stock RXT for comparison.

    Outa the hole...about dead even...all day. Now...that's against a rider 50lbs lighter. On glass...I had a slight edge...all day...but...throw in a few small wakes and it seemed that my ski would plow and drag when it hit the water again....maybe not plow...but deffinately slow. On a rough day like I'm used to riding in during the summer at SML I'll be sucking hind tit all day long...my work ain't finished.

    I remember Shibby talking about this too. Has me wondering...anybody ever took the outside wings off the riva grate?

    ...curious.

    I filled the ride plate this past winter...sorry I didn't list that. I won't fill the grate holes till I'm satisfied with my choice....I hate working backwards....I did the bucket mod...I may take out a little more since I wasn't as aggressive as others.

    I thought about the prop though.

    Mine's got some chew marks on her....sucked up a branch or two last summer and the year before. That was the biggest reason for getting the SS ring.

    Is there a better prop than the stocker without having a beefier SC to twist it?

    my Riva stg. 1 came with a 14/17R. Maybe u can have your OEM prop blue printed to your existing mods. IMPROS does excellent work to props.
