New '14 VXR Owner...What should my next mods be?
Just bought my new VXR about a month ago. Just installed Riva pro waterbox, Riva thru hull exhaust, Riva breather, Riva sponsons and Riva block offs...About to order R&D intake kit as I don't like how Riva kit kills the front storage. I'm looking at ordering a ride plate and pump seal kit too I think? Or what should I order? I'm more into top end MPH than cornering, however I do like stability in a corner. Here's the vid of how she sits now with the sweet exhaust note...
P.S.-Tried to install Riva ribbon delete and could not get one of the studs out under the throttle body as it just spun inside the sleeve...any idea how to fix that? Lemme know please.

Best mod is to get all the mechanicals (which are brilliant), take them out of a vx hull (which is shit), and put them in a gpr hull ( which is brilliant), and ride around with a great big smile, knowing you have the best ski money can buy-and then take some pics and send them to Yamaha, so they can see what needs to be done!

Seriously LOL a video about the video I posted...Can anyone seriously just give me a straight answer that helps me out about next mods or what? Thank you shrabber for your answer on the stud thing. I just put that piece all back together and I'll mess with it another day. I don't think leaving the factory screen in there is that big of a performance killer.
