    RXP-X Intake Grate


    1. Does the intake grate off of the RXP-X work on the RXP 155?
    Same thing with the grate off of the rxt-x, will it work on the gti se?

    2. And is there any performance advantage by adding the oem grate from the rxp-x or should i get the R&D intake grate?

    3. And will the R&D GTX NA kit work for the RXP 155?

    Sorry for all of the questions, and thanks for your help!

    No, it will not fit. You can fit the Riva or R&D intake grates (non x model) to your 155 RXP.

    It won't fit but R&D makes a grate for the GTI

    OEM X model grate will not fit your RXP.

    Yes, it will work just fine but i will send you the GTI grate instead of the GTX grate that normally comes with the kit. All other components will work perfectly. If you decide to go with the kit just leave me a note in the comments section when you place the order that the kit will be going on a 155 RXP.

    thanks

    If the RXT-X grate did fit, you would loose lots of speed... Ron

    So for the RXP 155, this grate would fit and work good?

    For the GTI SE :

    This impeller for both skis:

    These two added together should net 3-4 MPH, am I right?

    Yes, it will fit great but the Riva grate is faster in smooth water. The R&D grate give hookup in rough water.

    No way! It takes a lot to gain 3-4 mph.

    Adding a grate and impeller to your skis will give better hookup, holeshot, acceleration and handling and a nice "side effect" might be that you gain 1-2 mph.

    Haha, yeah I thought I was being a little bit optimistic. I weigh 135# so I should be getting good numbers with the impeller, grate, and maybe a wedge. Which wedge will fit the RXP and the GTI SE, and do I need one?
    Thanks.
