Mike, I had an 04 HO160.
I put Rivas kit on mine and all worked. I got 65.4 out of mine and fantastic handling with a great hole shot.
I still have kit in my addick waiting for new GP.

Wow ! Thats encouraging 65.4 ... something to aim for thats for sure. After the Riva kit goes on, the R&D pump cone and the R&D steering nozzle would be an interesting exercise !!
Imagine a normally aspirated FX engine doing the famous twin sixes !
66mph on normally aspirated FX160 who's gonna be the first in Oz to do it boys !!!!!!!
So the race is on huh ??? First to 66mph ...

John, I put each mod on 1 at a time. Velocity stacks and filter were a huge gain. Intake grate was over a mile per hour.
Mike kit is not for sale. I purchased the Ho because I was under the impression that last spring they would be coming out with a fourstroke GP.
They did not but will some day.
The Ho ran 63.5 all the time and broke the 65s low on fuel.
If you ride in rough water there is not a bettter ski out there. Fuel economy is unfair to anyone you ride with.
