engines are big air pumps, more air in + fuel = more power. so thhe riva stuff like ribbon delete, cold air intake, rear exit exhaust all help that airflow and than to unlock the potential of the ski and mods you do you need to retune it, r3 isnt good for you with no mods what your looking for is a stage 1 tune with the maptuner.

Thanks RCAB, I think i bought parts from u last year. I can def. get the cold air intake and ribbon delete in. We're does the maptuner want to put me then. Can do ride plate and grate as well.
Ready to order a maptuner if the same nicely prepared. time tested like R&D "reflashes" are available...or are these reflashes all Beta testing at this point?
Heck, R&D has said peeps can see even bigger gains with a bone stock ski with an R4, but new valve springs and retainers are required.
How tuneable has the maptuner been, and how do you know which parameters to tweak without producing too much timing, etc.?

V-Tech doesn't use R&D tunes, and R&D doesn't use V-Tech tunes.
V-Tech has tunes comparable to the R&D tunes and vice versa.
Here are the available maps and recommended modifications for each reflash for the SHO skis
SHO Stage 1 8100 RPM
RIVA Power Filter
RIVA Intake Manifold Upgrade
RIVA Free Flow Exhaust
RIVA Intake Grate
Riva Pump Seal Kit
Solas 13/22R impeller
RIVA Ride Plate
SHO Stage 2 8300 RPM
Same components as Stage 1 with the addition of the following parts:RIVA B1 Supercharger Upgrade
Riva Engine Breather Upgrade
RIVA Gen 2 Power Cooler
HKS Blow off Valve
RIVA Engine Cooling Upgrade Kit
SHO Stage 3 8600 RPM
Same components of Stage 1 and Stage 2 with the addition of the following parts
RIVA E1 supercharger upgrade
RIVA Rising Rate Fuel Pressure Regulator
RIVA Stainless Steel 160mm Wear Ring
Skat Trak 13/18 Impeller
RIVA Valve Spring Retainer Kit
The MaptunerX system is incredibly easy to use. You can switch between the available maps mentioned above whenever you choose, and even flash back to stock and this costs you nothing extra. This is the MaptunerX bundle package that you would need for your ski. They are currently on sale 10% off
Hope that helps!

yup get after it, speed is addictive but its the best drug

and the best part is you can tune your friends skis if they buy a license no more shipping the ecu off and waiting 7-10 days and also you can reflash back to stock in order for warranty.

has anyone used the maptuner on a HO/NA model yet??? is it worth it, I got it for my new FZR, but also want to use it on my VXS but at 600 more per license
JesusG whats your opinion on this??

To get the best performance you need also to replace the impeller and intake manifold upgrade...itīs not a mandatory but it will help.

what impeller you recomend?, im currently running a solas 13/19 and already have the ribbon delete done
05-21-2016, 10:54 AM #29
it depends on what your rpms are thats a good prop you might want to reflash ecu and repitch prop to get rpm up
