Intake grate removal and upgrade
My only experience with removing an intake grate was way back when I had an '04 SPX, and the bolts broke off when I attempted to remove it because of salt corrosion.What an absolute nightmare that was.How easy does the grate come off on my ski? I would hate to take it to the dealer and have them install one if it is simple and nothing breaks.Oh what grate do you guys recommend on my bone stock ski? I guess I'll do the wedge as well.Thanks

or 3) The Worx Grate. They all have different effects on the ski and you should do a search thru the forum for threads about them. They have been discussed at length. Best speed is with the worx which is also the most expensive. The worst of the 3 will still give you at least 2 mph better top speed.

I have the Riva wedge and Riva grate and I have been happy with them. I had my stock grate bend after I trued it so had to switch, but I like the Riva. Only problem with them on the RXT is that they do fit close to flush to the ride plate. It will take some work to get it close to flush, If you are worried about that kind of thing. I Did notice better hook up and only a slight speed loss, but the wedge will help with that.

Some people have had the riva grates break at the back on the
rxp's. Don't know if any have broken on rxt's.
