    fx160ho spark arrester removal

    has anyone had any success in removing the spark arrester mesh from the intake throttle bodies and fabricated their own volocity stacks looking for a cheap alternative. similar to riva kit. also just removing the rear water box and installing free flow exhaust using 90mm 90deg bend.

    I know I read that someone had done that, not sure which forum I read that on. However, no one ever posted any true results from it. I've removed the silencer on my exhaust but I have never gps'd it. I've wondered about the flame arrestors myself, especially since nothing has to be relocated or the possibility of them falling off. Of course I wonder why Riva or R&D didn't make them fit like the oem's. I'm curious of anyone's results.
