    Honda Splash Guard F12x (RIVA)

    I just got back from testing out my new Riva Spash guard Its most excellent 90% reduction in lake spray, I will have to report back when I get back from an ocean ride.

    It goes on easy.

    1) Remove the front bumper guard.
    2) C-clamp the center of the splash guard to the center of the bow.
    3) Drill and install the 1/8 provided SS rivets.

    No trimming, thats it

    NitroShark gives it

    You happen to get a picture without the cover??
    Can you see the mounting rivets or is it all hidden behind the bond line seal?

    The Riva splashguard will rip off at the ends when jumping big ocean waves if you mount it as Riva states. TO correct this issue, I found that leaving the last six inches on each side unattached (under the lip, but not screwed in at the end) takes a lot of the pressure off the splashguard when you land by allowing water to have more room to escape.

    If the guard is attached at the very ends, then the water has to either channel along the hull and go out all the way at the back, or more easily just rip the foam of the guard out around your attaching points and just go where it wants. The six inch free play area reduces the pressure as the water goes out back and gives it more area to escape as your craft lands in the water.

    Just FYI from my experience...

    so every slash guard works similar to its competitors? And i so 99.9% ocean riding and wave jumping is a huge priority. so to leave the last <6" free will help it from being ripped off? My question is have the end sections free, will it still be as effective as its intended use? or can you just cut that section off u speak of?

    That's what I found also and that's why I bolted mine on. No problems after that.

    Would this be as beneficial on an R-12x?
