    Will this help in the overstuffing department?? I need to get both this one and the Riva one and the holes. Once bitten twice shy.

    I hate to go against what the manufacturer says but a grate will not "Fix" the overstuff issue. It can help prolong the point of which it overstuffs but the only way to completely prevent the overstuff is to relieve the pump pressure.

    If a grate could fix the overstuff the old Kawi's would have come with special grates instead of the holes drilled thru the shoe.

    If a grate could fix the overstuff on the GPR we would not be running pump pressure relief methods on these skis.

    If you guys believe that a grate is going to solve your pump overstuff problems then you are setting yourself up for an injury in the future.

    I do still agree with you Jerry, I was just saying what I was told by R&D. Needless to say I will be leaving the holes in my pump shoe.

    Doing that you make it harder for the water to be processed, causing an even worse backup of water.

    A shit ton of water is going IN that pump no matter what.

    NO, that will only makes things worse. We're trying to get more water out of the pump (by drilling holes in the pump shoe) not keep it in. Somehow Riva has figured out a way to run a reduction nozzle, I am not sure how.
