    07 250X starting my mods questions

    Finally finished my RXP going 80++ and now starting on my ultra the GPR is next!! so last night pulled the intercoller to see if any oil was in there and it was dry as a bone but flushed it any way. pulled the BOV and caped it .put the valve cover blockoffs on and installed the riva cold air intake ,What a PITA to remove the old air box!!!! the riva grate with the R+D seal kit and the water box bypass. First question is,,,, advertisers are listing an intake grate to get the advertised top speeds is it necessary?? and How about the sponsons I know on the gpr they help acceleration is it the same on the ultra??? and the R+D fuel pick up has any one pulled the pick up out without removing the body work?????

    The Riva (actually it's from R&D) intake grate will slow you down. Unless you ride offshore, put the stock one back on.

    Riva instructions are very nice with pics and you can even download them at the Riva website.
    No you dont have to pull it.

    I have the instructions it just says to remove the stock hose and discard and install the new one But I cant get to the clamp to JUST remove and discard the only way I can get to the clamp is to remove the manifold unless some one on here knows a better way????

    If the clamp was turned the wrong way from the factory it can be a pain to remove. A long flexible extension will help.

    Riva plate + 2degree SUX!
    Only good if you ride in glass.
    I suggest you remove the wedge and retest.
    Grate will slow you down.
    I cant speak of Jim's plate cause i am overseas
    But all feedback is very possitive.
