    Opinions of R&D products?

    I can't seem to find a good info on their products so I'd like to hear your opinions/experiences.

    Do a search for EXPLODING INTAKE GRATES and you should get an idea...

    I've had good experience with them. I don't like the grate breaking thing, but they replace them for me. Alot of RIVA's aftermarket parts a made by R&D.

    I'm looking at all the below listed parts. Unfortunately, the aftermarket support for the VX110 just isn't there and R&D seems to be the only ones who are making performance parts for them. Riva does have a couple things but they seem to be rebadged R&D parts.

    R&D Aquavein Intake Grate
    R&D Power Plenum Filter kit (Also sold under the Riva name)
    R&D Free Flow Exhaust Kit
    R&D Pro Series Sponson Kit (Also possibly sold under the Riva name)
    R&D OEM Grate/Shoe Kit
    R&D Anti-Cavitation Cone
    Solas 18/24 Concord Impeller
    (Basically the R&D Performer kit)

    Oh yeah, Island Racing has a ride plate mod but I have no idea if that is worth anything.

    My big question is that R&D claims a gain of 6+mph with the above parts so I'm wondering if thats accurate or just a bunch of smoke being blown up my rear end

    The plate from Island racing or jim will give you 4 +/- mph... I would start out with INTAKE grate, PPK, and ride plate... then play with the motor!

    I definetly want to get a GPS baseline just gotta figure out the best time to hit the water when it's not all chopped up.

    So, if R&D's MPH claims are semi accurate and I get the ride plate from carl or jim and should be able to break the 60mph mark?

    Also, if I'm doing the Intake Grate should I do a seal kit while i'm in there?

    Lastly, are the Powershot Adj fuel tuner things worth a damn?
