    Air intake location ?

    where is the best place to route a custom intake ?

    i ride open ocean and jump pretty big waves so the rear intake is not an option.

    No trying to hijack the thread, but in the RIva instructions it says the rectifier must be moved. With Custom 4" intakes, is it still necessary to follow Riva instructions to move rectifier?

    Thanks in advance!

    The rectifier is moved to the side of the battery, with a bracket, on the RXP...As long as it is in a vented space to cool the fins, it is fine...

    YET if you are installing a 4", remove all the OEM tubing, but you can still leave the rectangle part (what the rectifier is mounted too) in place....Its not being used, and keeps proper tension on the tank....

    Danny, Thanks.

    So with a 4", you recommend moving the rectifier to keep it cool and ventilated, but leave the mounting bracket in place? Thanks.

    As long as the recifier is not wrapped in duct tape, it will be fine.

    If you leave the black OEM air intake tubing on the tank, there is no need to remove the recifier from its current location...Remove the tubing, secure it somewhere...If you do remove it, its best to mount it somewhere secure. If you got some velcro, you can remount it to the tank...
