Pump wedge and Intake Grate Question
I've got a 2005 RXT and tend to spend a lot of my time in the choppy waters of the Solent.
I'm not too fussed about the speed benefits of any mods, quite happy with the stock ski, but I am hoping that there's something I can do to get the nose up a little to help cut through the chop.
I understand that one of the ways a pump wedge may change the ride of the machine is to lift the nose up a little, which may well help in my situation.
Anyone got any experience of this, and what's your thoughts on whether it will help?
Also, how difficult are these two parts to fit?
I'm going over to Fort Lauderdale, Florida in Apr (from the UK), so will be picking up the necessary parts if it's going to do the job. (Riva or PPG)

OK... So I guess the 2.5 one will lift the nose higher?
Which will be the best intake grate to use with this then?
And how about fitting the intake grate, is that easy enough?

+1 on the R&D 2.5* for the 3 seaters
grate wise the R&D is more aggresive and should hook up better in the rough water, maybe cost you 1 mph over the Riva
Riva grate should get you more top speed with more hook up over a stock grate
Intake grate is easy to install.....the hardest part is crawling under the ski on a trailer

You may want to consider skegs.
