    Pics of holes drilled in cowling latch

    I was looking for pictures of people who have drilled holes on the cowling near the latch. I have seen them before but did a search and coule not find them. Could someone post me in the right direction?

    Thanks for that link I had never seen that before but I was looking for the ones some of you drill on the grab handle of the cowling. Where the seat latches on the back. I remember seeing some pics of someone who drilled like 5 or 6 holes near the area where the prefilter would be for the Riva rear intake.

    I tried that on a rear grab handle for my RXP using the Riva rear air kit. First I started off with small holes in the grab handle, that did not improve anything on my ski.
    So then I drilled them out for the Flo-rites, again no gain in performace.
    Finally I cut the rear section as big as possible, I cut the plastic out around the seat catch stud to the point to where it was some what flimsy compared to stock. I do not believe you could cut one much more and still use the rear grab handle. Again I did not see any gains from this modification. The only thing I could see that it would do was allow water a lot easier access to the filter area.

    So I replaced it with a new stock grab handle and I have the same performance that I had when I started to modify the grab handle.
