    Is the Riva intake grate too aggessive...?

    I have gone through two sets of these now! Both times it ripped my rideplate, and that is part that is on backorder most of the year!!!

    Im thinking this riva grate is too aggresive for an RXT...

    I know Steve is a fan of the stock one....What can I do to the stock one to make it better?

    I did not install this on my ski. PPG did the work last time. I did it the first time. Yes it was loctited.

    Jerry the rear bolt that goes into the rideplate in like an ear shaped form, broke off from the rideplate.

    R&D Girdle Kit? I had the R&D grate before....Im keeping the stock one now.

    Talk to CRS about the R&D girdle kit for their grate. It makes it much more secure and helps prevent it from being pulled out.
