Removing rear air, back to RIVA 3" front
I do a lot of riding in the ocean and in wake conditions. I love the rear air but I dont want to be worrying about ingesting water after every little wave. What kind of losses should I be looking at ? Is acceleration going to be affected that much ???

You can't go back to the 3", you'll starve the Rude.. Do a 4" kanaflex intake if you can't keep the Riva rear.

I agree with Alex. Go with a 4 in kanaflex if you must go front intake. I would keep the rear intake for smooth water riding. Just simply disconnect the front intake from the 4 in adapter and hook up the rear when you want it.

This is what i had in mind of doing but with the RIVA 3". I was going to cut the RIVA 3" at the bend near the Sc and leave the front half always in there. and just add the rear depending on where im riding. I had a Kanoflex in there at one point and I hated the way it looked in there. It was all kinked up and just looked like a rig.

Im surprised no one has come up with something to keep the water out of the rear air intakes ???

I agree the kanaflex is not the best looking set up. If you just use the riva front for ocean riding I dont think the performance diff will matter much.

Acceleration matters more in the ocean. top speeds are usually never seen out there.
