Riva Power Filter
What does everyone think about the RIVA Powerfilter for an RXT. Is there something better out there? Can you make the RXP rear air intake work on a RXT?

I Think The Riva Power Pipe Is A Good Part. I Still Use One Now And I Am About To Get The Rear Air For A Rxp, And I Will Post Back What The Gains Are. I Went 78.1mph At 8140rpm With The Power Pipe And A Stock Ecu. Not To Mention It Mounts Nice And Neat And Has A Smooth Good Looking Finish.
Just My Opinion!!!!!

the riva PP is an excellent product. it provides the owner a well engineered performance improvement somewaht easy to install option.
Personally I an mot a big fan of the kanaflex but will admit it is a great way to do an intake relatively easily and cheap.

be very careful if you have a 3 inch pipe (Riva intake, not rear) on a rxt with the restrictive sock removed. one of our guys had a seat cover fitted and it pulled in a little at the front. this let the water run through into the engine bay and straight to the intake. and kaboom! full rebuild. even through a rod straight through the block hanging out in the hull . trust me go a 4 inch front mount if you don`t ride on a lake. this was a mess to clean up and get running again. sorry Riva

I think it is a great product, espescially if you can get a used one in good condition at a decent price. On my 04 RXP is made a customer 4" intake and it cost me about 150 when all was done ( kanoflex, K&N filter and 3-4" adaptor). For my RXP-X i bought the riva off a forum member here much was less then that, including shipping. It was in great condition and had all pieces. The most I may do to my ski is a stage II, more realistically Stage 1 plus a few other mods. So for me the RPM difference between 3" and 4" is not that significant and the RIVA is a better fit and look. just my 2 cents.
