    Single bar vs. Double bar intake grates...

    Ok,

    What are the advantages vs. disadvantages of these types of grates. I'm looking to get one and am unsure what way to go. I ride in light to moderate chop with the occasional ride in the Ocean. I was looking at the R&D intakes grates too if that helps.

    Pros-Cons...anyone..

    Thanks,
    Steve

    I personally would get the double bar one. There's a member that did back-to-back tests on both the single and double bar and found no speed advantages.

    Here's a link that talks about it.

    Hey Rafi,

    Why would you get the double as opposed to the single? Any reasons in particular. I did see a link on where teh R&D single shattered and messed up the hole pump assembly on a ski.

    Cya,
    Steve

    That's the main reason I got the double grate. More than one forum member posted that it happened to them so I replaced the single grate I had for the double grate one.

    You might want to consider getting the 800 grate also. It will give you more top end (about 1 MPH) but will be sluggish out the hole. I haven't tested the 800 but that's what I've read about it.

    Either way that's why I got the double grate one.

    The double bar grates are the ones that Razzbo, fullboogie, Fercho, etc have had cracks. The reason to run the double bar has to do with speed - it's faster.

    I thought it had been the double grate one...my bad. This is a thread worth revisiting.

    I personally have NO experience with the single bar grates...its my understanding they are more for CC racing...

    I would have thought Mark would have spoken up by now on this subject.
