    Anyone use Riva splash shield for GPR carbs?

    Does anyone use the Riva GPR splash shield for the carbs? If so, does it work well and is there any drawbacks like carb access or something else? Thank you for any comments.

    I've been told it's no longer available, sure would like to have one though.

    I just installed one last night. I dont agree with the bolts they sent but other than that it fit nicely - defionelty will help splash from the belly of the hull and it stopped a few bolts I dropped.

    I dont see where it could restrict carb access @ all.

    I agree with mrbtd, I just put one on. I figured it couldn't hurt. Doesn't seem to interfere with access to carbs at all.

    Not worth it IMO, It was hard to access the low speed adjustors on the OEM carbs. Its hard enough to access them w/o it. No longer available since it was not a good seller. It is an excellent part for EFI 1300's

    Yep agree. And taking off blackjacks with the bottom bolts near impossible with this on. I had to loosen the whole motor up tilt it side ways just to get the bolts off

    It was great to use in rough water. It really limited the amount of sloshing near the carbs and flame restrictors. Much harder to take off lower bolts on carbs, but virtually impossible to drop a screw under the engine.
