Thats scary. I read last summer about the wipeouts caused by grate failure at high speed. Looks like thats something to check before every ride.

Is that an OEM grate or aftermarket?

OEM, I have modified it , but no where near where it is cracked.

My riva grate for my previous ski (HO Cruiser) broke into three pieces. I noticed that the scoop was bent sideways and when I loosend the screws and tried to pull it off, the pieces fell off. Riva replaced it for free though. You can just imagine what would happen if it broke while I was doing 60 mph..

One of my friends didn't properly tighten the front intake grate bolt on his RXX and it let loose while we were drag racing. It ejected him at about 62-63 and he cartwheeled for about 15ft. Luckily the ski went in a different direction and nobody got hurt. I couldn't agree more: CHECK YOUR INTAKE GRATES! Especially after you've had them off!
