    ocean riding mods

    i installed the riva grate and took the opas off and added the finger throttle. i know this isn't much but i was wondering if there is anything else i should do for riding in the ocean and the bay. what should my next step be?

    For ocean riding extending your rideplate out 1" will work wonders

    With a welding machine and some aluminum. Be advised that this will scrub speed.

    Not what i imagined, dont know if i can handle the process, and get used to how it looks
    How about after-market grates: are there any designed for ocean that can fit easily on RXP and that dont rob too much speed?
    Thanks
