    Question Which is better Exhaust, Riva or R Rated

    I see that with the Riva exhaust which i just purchased it eliminates the secondary waterbox and with R Rated it eliminates both. What could be the difference and is there any gain with the R Rated one over the Riva? Or performance wise their about the same still except maybe the few pounds extra because of keeping the primary waterbox with the Riva exhaust? I just know their the same price and I hope I made the right choice.....Any suggestions?

    The R-Rated pipe is more for racers . the free flow pipe is better for rec riding . we have both.

    That's what I have. I like it over the RIVA unit because you don't have to cut the pipe that runs out the back of the hull. The price is also much cheaper than the one from Riva.

    Made the correction for you.

    How does that system sound? Did you have the primary waterbox modded? Will the new riva waterbox work with this r-rated secondary eliminator?

    The "U" pipe is made by Rudy at R-Rated. I think Jerry corrected it for me and changed "R-Rated" to "Riva" hey Jerry..... It was right the first time If you look at the pics, the "U" pipe uses the stock hoses so I'm guessing that it should work with the Riva water box. I'm also running an R-Rated modified primary water box.
