    what is the best rideplate for my riva?

    I have a 1999 Riva GP1200 and am trying to decide which rideplate to get to increase my speed and handling. I am also thinking about getting a free flow exhaust for it also. What exactly goes into putting this in? Is it worth it? Thanks in advance for all the info!!!!!

    Riva made the limited edition plate and it was good. I run the R&D with the Group K cut. The shredmaster is the best in rough water. They don't make a free flow exhaust for the 97-99 GP's. The do make aftermarket waterboxes, but they are a waste of money IMO. The black rubber hose we have from the waterbox to the exit flange is pretty much a free flow. There is not any baffles are anything in the rubber hose.

    Yea I would like to put triples back on there but I don't have another ski to take out and I wouldn't really want to be taking the one with triples out every week considering the maintanance that is required for triples although it is very tempting.

    Okay so I'm guessing I would purchase the R&D rideplate through Group K then? I was just curious if there was anything else you could do to the exhaust to make it any louder even though it is pretty loud as it is.

    like brandon sed, you could buy an after market waterbox like a TDR..but there really isnt any performance advantage and it is just louder...i got one for my gp..looks really nice couldnt tell you what it sounds like..or you could cut you waterbox in half remove the baffles and weld it back together..
