    Your ski does not look like a 2019 FX SVHO - ran today on light chop, chop and flat - almost no bounce with stock plate - RPM 8400 solas 13/18 74 MPH in fort Myers riva stage 1 + less the POS Riva Ride plate. I rode for miles WTO - I can not do that with the POS Riva plate. The ski is fun again. It is a bit loose WTO - but controllable. Un controllable with the POS Riva plate WFO. Anyone who wants to compare the 2 - i'm more than happy to oblige. My riding friends all say the same. the POS Riva plate corners better - but not worth the bounce ride

    Yes - I shimmed the POS RIVA plate flush with intake - no change.


    Great day out today - little wind - no traffic

    Enjoy

    Sorry - sad that RIVA doesn't stand up - my thoughts also

    I'm in Fort Myers - any rider wishing to ride - Thanks

    I am so glad we have billet knobs available for the engine though.....

    Took off the Riva plate and swapped it for Jimís and picked up 1mph on GPS. Whatís even better is no bouncing/porpoising whatsoever. This was on the River with a slight chop. Will be testing on the Ocean over the weekend. Needless to say, DOES ANYONE WANT TO BUY MY SLIGHTLY USED RIVA PLATE?

    Rather spend the money on other goodies to get this thing to 85mph. Unless someone wants to send me donations? ��
