    hey congrats!!

    Most dont like the pump wedge on the RXP, porposing or bouncing at high speeds is conqured by the use of block offs and some fear adding a wedge will only complicate things and might bring it back, However some like sundance have had no problems.

    I would suggest give yourself some time to gain some feel for the boat then think about a wedge.

    Congrates. Glad we could help.

    NOW 1st question does it have the Riva Metal SCer washers?
    If not change them fast.

    Also did you address the pump as asked. Let make sure all is well before your maiden voyage.

    TDSTYG--Meirvin is absolutely correct. Get some ride time on your ski and learn it's handling. One of my first mods was a 2 degree wedge back two years ago (still on the boat--have never taken it off.) My ski never had porposing until about the 75 mph range. To cure any porposing (IF you expearance it) just add Pro Series Blocks Offs. Also if you do install a wedge be sure and install Riva's VTS extension rod to keep a great hole shot. If you do install the block offs be sure and also install Jerry's skeggs. With the block offs and the skeggs your ski will handle like its on rails. Good luck and have fun.
