    Looking for Riva style air filter

    Anyone know where to get a universal flame arrestor style filter like the one that comes in the Riva Power filter kit? Im looking for one with no gauze or cotton just the metal frame.

    Because theres no dirt in the water or in your ski, Hopefully. And the more seethrough it is the more air you get.

    who makes the filter for Riva, I would like to get a 4inch one for my custom intake and think this metal frame only style is better than the gauzy ones like K&N

    u wont believe the selection Auto Zone has for high performance parts and air filters.... that's where i got mine, Red devil got something similar at Auto Zone as well... and it has multiple sized flanges so u can switch between 3" and 4" air intakes using the same air filter.

    Interesting point. Most stock air boxes don't have a filter, its just routed in a way so water does not enter the intake.

    If you are running in flat water, straight line for top speed, why not run without one.

    I thought about just taking off the top part of my air box on my FX, but I noticed water on the top of the box, so some how water is ending up on top. But it is only when I take a look at it before I ride. Might just be condesation.

    Might try in a flat water condition.
