    Splash Guard

    Hey Guys,
    What splash guard do you recommend? I'm assuming they are the samething but I would like to double check. Thanks in advance.

    The rigid foam JetTrim ones are the best IMO. Second is the Hydroturf ones, but the stitching seems to always loosen and fall out....function wise they are same. JT looks cooler too i think.

    The rigid BSD's (like Riva/Jet Trim) do a better job of deflecting spray. But if you race or ride in seriously rough water, the more rigid BSD will rip out and take the nose bumper with it. The softer version (like AWD) doesn't deflect as much spray, but it will just flip up in race/choppy conditions without taking the nose bumper with it.

    There are soft OEM ones available in black, red and yellow that are very soft foam with soft rubber on the outside that flip up.

    I have a couple of those. They work but can let some spray by so I never installed em.

    I have a jetrim and it's great. Took a LONG time to install correctly since I am anal.

    Get the one with the flames on it. The smaller one does not work well on the RXP's.

    It killed 2mph off my top end. FYI

    The man is right! 7 miles into the LB2CAT race my JT BSD took out my right rub rail, Snapped the rivots!! about a 2ft section ripped out & the BSD & rail was flapping the whole race. Advice, Use SS wood screws or nuts & bolts with fender washers on EACH side of the rub rail. This will grab more of the BSD & keep the rail from "dipping" in from the torque where the screws are installed. This is how I repaired my rail & BSD, BTW, with all the pounding the flapping BSD took it held up. No tears from where the rail tore out. It was a clean snap on the 1st 2 rivots & the 3rd & 4th pulled through the rail.

    I've tried them all and that's the one I keep going back to. It's not the best deflector, but I've never had one come off.
