    best intake grate for 1200 xlt

    I have a 2001 xlt and it has a bad cavitation problem. After some price checks i found: R&D $107, Worx $179, Riva $107. Which one works best? I am not looking for speed or performance increase just better hook up on take off.
    Also should I consider an impeller?
    trying not to spend to much money.

    thanks for any advice.

    Also, If your looking for more speed, get with Jim's Performance. He has a Grate/Shoe combination that works great

    thanks for the advice. I got the R&D and I will install and test it before I buy the ppk. Is there an alternative way to plug the holes, without buying the ppk? Are those just foam/rubber pieces that fill the voids?

    here is a picture of the ppk kit on my shoe I have read that some people are filling the voids with something else but I dont remember what if you dont do it you wont get the big ski out of the hole without cavitation you will still get the transmission is sliping feeling without the ppk kit with the new grate but the hook up in rough water is much better.
