first mod's omg this is crazy
k i have a 04 rxp riva thru hull and riva air intake and intake grate was surprised to see a 2mph loss but omg it gets to top speed a hell of alot faster it was also kinda weird with the opas off that was hard to get use to at first i didnt like it was to loose but after awile got use to it and now i love it i was wondering i was only getting 7700 rpm does that sound right and what should i do to get the 2mph back oh yea i filled the ride plate holes also.

You really need to get a GPS. You can't rely on the dreamometer.
You are down 400 RPM's which is costing you 3+ mph
Find your missing RPMs!
The usual cause is
worn wear ring
over filled oil

I'm surprised to see a 400 RPM losso just by installing the intake and grate. Not much that can go wrong with those two simple upgrades. Maybe a boost leak like Jerry mentioned.
