Riva Performance Intake
Anyone install one of these before? I got mine in last night and was not happy with the fit in the hull. The filter cone presses hard against the fuel tank and wires. Also the instructions say nothing about blocking the two bolts (between the handle bar and glove box) that held the old intake box in place, what about water dripping on to the filter then going down into the s/c? Come on Riva, this is a poor design.....

I mean, considering all of the variables: temperature (outside, and water), barometric pressure, humidity, wind speed, current...and surely many others. You would have to make sure all variables are the same!!!! This would take a long time to do the comparison to get the BEST data possible!
DAMN! Thank you microsoft excel to track all of this stuff! And, my statistics professor....

As far as tracking goes. Its VERY important to track stuff. Excel works GREAT for these things. RPM's, top speed, temp.. I dont get into the bar. pressure, water temps. etc..
Get a log book and jot down notes, then transfer to excel. When you have an issue, you can look back on your notes. I note my races, who I raced against, hole shot, who won, how many ski's I would hole shot, flat water speed, rough water speed, mid range acceleration, was I getting smoked that day, or was I doing the smoking.
Example. I'm down ~500 RPMs from my last ride. I had something done to my ski, but its a DOG now. I'm going to change my setup back to what I had before, then see if it gets me back my RPM"s. But I know my last setup, RPM's etc. Makes it a little easier to trouble shoot. Now If I dont find my RPM's, then I will be screaming from you guys.
