    Riva Stinger 2?

    I have found someone that will sell me their Riva Stinger 2 with Jetworks valve for $200. Is this a good deal and would my 2000 XL 1200 Limited benefit from this or should I just get the Holeshot kit and a free flow exhaust??

    I have only recently started playing with the Stingers, some of the old timers have more experience with them than me. From my experience, they have great bottom end, but they rpm drop on top is large. The whole purpose was to try to "wake up" the GPRs low end potential. Then came the jetworks mod for and now those stingers are pretty much obsolete.

    Just my .02

    dont waste your money.. keep your stock pipe and drill/tap that one with a jetworks mod. The stock pipe works just as good.

    If you do get the stinger 2... bore the pipe flange out another .200 and Open the water inlet holes to I think .150. I have it written down in my notes somewhere.
    This will greatly help flow and cooling. Run your jetworks to the lower flange of the pipe.

    This is how we set one of my friends CC boat up.
