    Fly FA's or R&D Power Plenum?

    Has anyone done a direct comparision of the pod style FA's (Fly Racing, Riva, Etc.) vs. the R&D Power Plenum on a GP1200R? If you had both of them in hand which one would you use and why?

    I've been using the one piece R&D for 5 years and I think my speed speaks for itself. But if I had one or the other, I wouldn't shell out money for a different style. I just can't see that much difference between the two, other than the R&D being easier to take off for servicing the carbs.

    Good talking to you today, Clint. We'll have that GPR smoking soon.

    Clint, are you wanting to get rid of the Riva F/A's and go to something else on the GPR????

    Only reason I am asking is I just picked up a brand new R&D Power Plenum on Ebay a couple hours ago for $20! It was one of those deals that was too good to pass up, I will find out which works best and sell the others! For $20 I figured I couldn't go wrong and could actually make a little money in the long run.

    David: Yeah it was great talking with you too! I appreciate all the help! I'll PM you my cell number so you have it.

    You might want to do a search - I posed the same question last year and someone noted the Proks had a minor RPM gain.

    Dont forget you will need carb adapters for that FA (if they werent included)

    I have run Proks and Tau Ceti F/A's good results with both. I also had Fly F/A's come on a ski I bought they were falling apart I would stay away from the Fly's.

    Pretty sure those Fly's come with a lifetime warranty. On my SeaDoo's I had at least 3 replaced for around $10.
