Riva High Flow Hood (Worth it?)
I think some guys have the high flow hood and i mjust wondering if it is worth the cost? and also how much water comes in. i need a better air intake setup and this is one of my options im considering. any information will be helpful like any increase on RPM's. thanks, justin

I don't get any water in mine but I'm not a super aggressive rider in that sense...It could get water in but I think the potential danger is just about as remote as the ac tual chance it get's water in...
The supercharger whine is considerably more noticed. It is a quality piece (better finish than the stocker IMO) and it's quite possible that it contributes to performance. I installed it at the same time as the rest of my Stage II but I can say that it combined with the Riva thermo equals no heat fade at all in Florida heat...
Personally I feel it's a "finishing touch" part. If you've done the bulk of everything else (or at least everything you want to do) then get it but if you still have substantial parts purchases towards performance then I would put the money elsewhere...IMO

I like my under seat vent with it being cut out to fit my 4in intake.
It was FREE and works just as good.

thanks for the input guys. i think im going to hold off until i get all the parts i need like u guys said. i may just go with the rear air intake and be done with it.

exactly, something like that jet draft air intake, just lower the filter a few inches so when u put the lid on ur not starving the sc of air.
