    RIVA. I run those. Easy to install and use. I'm sure both have their plus's. Riva sponsons definitely help stability. I ran them before and after most of my mods. Both are going to yield similar results

    I like the rivas too but they are proud of those bad boys. I had rivas on my 07 rxp. I just wanted to get perspectives on whether its worth going with riva over worx

    Either RIVA or WORX are my top choices. I say go with the WORX because they are cheaper. Also, be sure to use the discount code greenhulk when completing the checkout process in this forums online store. It will save you 10% off those sponsons!

    I use the worx sponsons they are deeper than the Riva sponsons. I run them full down and they work great but they resist light to moderate turning at high speed unless trim is full down, it's a weird sensation when you're trying to turn but it tries to push straight
