    FZ stock intake grate, modified?

    I have a 2009 with stainless riva grate. No issues.

    about to buy a ski, and it was built by deans team. One of the things on the build sheet/ recites. Is the intake grate modified.

    pics looks to match. Stock grate with the center rib removed and all smoothed out.

    i know these skis can buck with stock grate so was surprised to see such a list of mods and parts and not a R/d or riva or something intake grate...

    so any insight to this or thoughts.

    the dean,s grate looks like the two out side wings on the center bars of the grate are completely even with the front of the scoop wing, where the stock one the wings do not go down a much as the modified grate does. Wonder if they added material to the out side wings? OR possibly Riva made a change in there production grate and shortened these outside wings for increased speed. In early testing the Riva SS grate was not as fast as the R&D grate. I also noticed the rear scoop on the grate is cut different also on the outer edges more open on the dean,s grate. more for hookup and not designed for top speed. Just thinking to my self.

    So I should find RIVA and swap, or used R&D.

    or run it or what? How will a modded stock do in chop?
