Rxp-x Cheap Mods
Does anybody knows what are the cheap mods that people have tried out there to get the extra miles for the X-models without spending a lot of money?....

You could cut the wings on the stock intake grate...supposedly nets around 2 mph, but I've read that it causes "bucking." Another one is fill in your ride plate holes.

Im agreeing with j_tran i have a RXP-X and i just filled the holes on the ride plat and Cut the Wings off of the intake grate... you can feel a big diffrence and all it cost me was 5 bucks...

Not too sure RXP-X and cheap belong in the same sentence.

I could be wrong, but I dont think the bucking was caused by just cutting the outter wings off. People who got bucked off there skis had other things done to there skis that caused that problem. Someone please correct me if Im wrong.

we have three.....only mod to each is intake grate.
each one is cut differently
each has bucked at 73+mph
if you cut your intake just be prepared. All instances have happened in less than glass water.

The best advice I can give any X owner would be to get on the list for the riva x grate.....unless u like flying and skipping over water like a rag doll. Even if u are used to being beaten up, it's gonna hurt a lot.

concussions are not a fun thing

Its funny I have the outer wings cut on my intake grate, gone 75 mph and not yet experienced overstuff. I'm not calling you guys liars but I find it hard to believe that just cutting the grate is causing overstuff. After I hit 75 I abrutly let off the throttle. I can't wait to start testing again and see what happens.
