    removing the seat for speed

    I keep hearing people are removing the seat on the rxp-x / rxp boats to get more speed, I would guess better air flow. Is this true and has anybody found a way to modify the seat in a way to keep the stock look. Is it a noticable difference and would it be worth the time to modify the seat thanks

    removing the seat? i'm sure it makes a difference but damn that would be a little inconvenient... and risky.... one rogue wave and you got a problem.... now don't get me wrong...i'm all for making things fast...i have a 5.0 mustang that i'm building a 460 with mechanical fuel injection to run methanol i just don't see taking out my drivers seat to gain that extra oomph.... i have seen people modding under the grab bar...cutting holes and what not....and also you can thing about adding flo rights...i'll try to find pics

    I Usually leave the small rear seat off my RXT-X (No-one rides on back) and it doesn,t bother anything. I get better RPM,s in the summer heat (Humidity usuallty not bad in New England). I like to eat my lunch while sitting in the middle of the river and this allows the air to circulate and heat to escape while i,m eating.

    seat removal

    I understand that it would suck if you got swamped if the seat was removed, but I saw pictures on the 2008 mudbug run in personal watercraft and some guys were drag racing with the seat off.I was just wondering if there was an option to seat removal for performance. I was thinking of the riva rxp hood to increase just a little top end speed, I already did pump mods and intake grate along with a smaller pump nozel ,(82mm) from a 2004 rxp that helped a lot,just looking for that stock l;ook where they wonder where the speed is comin from thanks rob

    Yamajunk's do it for some reason, we usually get a good laugh at their expense.. I'd recommend hull mods to vent your hull; Riva high flow hood, Flow rites, Jammer1 mod.. Do it right the first time..

    I thought the main reason to ride with the seat off was to minimise weight.. they arent exactly light, especially when water logged!!
