    Riva intake question

    I was wondering those with the RIVA intake..does the outerwear that covers the filter restrict flow?? And do you run without it??

    Thanks,
    Osk

    I havent seen a decrease in performance on either my rxp or rxt. I race my rxp with the sock on because it protects somewhat against water ingestion

    I assume by outerwear you mean the water resistant pre-filter. Yes it does restrict flow to the tune of about 50 rpms. So unless you are making a top speed run for money, I would keep it on to help prevent water ingestion.

    Don't worry RudyJ it's that drool coming out your mouth that will get in the intake,you need drool control.
