    Easy mods for handling?

    Hey guys. I have that 2005 RXP that I would like to start putting some mods in. I'm fairly satisfied with the power for now, and dont really want to mess with motors and performance mods (and i dont have the knowledge neither).

    I dont know a lot about mecanics, and this is why i would like to start with easier mods that will help with the handling. It's ok if it add some speed to

    What do you guys suggest? As I read this forum, I was thinking about the OPAS blockers and a new intake grate. How will these mods change my handling and speed? and how hard are they to install, what tools do they requires? anything else (not so expensive and easy to do) you guys suggest?

    Thanks.

    Definatley start out with a Riva intake grate and OPAS blockoffs. Both are easy to install with basic hand tools.

    Your ski will feel like its 200 pounds lighter without the OPAS on.
