    Gen 1 vs Gen 2 riva intake grates for the GP 1800

    Has anyone tested these grates back to back? Were there any performance differences? I currently have the gen 1 and just ordered the gen2. A friend of mine just installed the gen2 and gave great feedback but he was coming from a stock 2019 grate.

    I’m also wondering this, the intake opening is much bigger. This has to help in cavitation and hookup. Mr GP, let us know what you think. My grate is sealed up so good not sure if it would be worth trying to get it off. Ugh

    I have a Gen2 on the way. I will likely put it on with my new impeller so I won't have a good apples to apples comparison to stock GP1800R grate.

    How does it compare to the gen 1? Is it like comparing the gen 1 to stock

    Gen 2 in an animal in hookup compared to gen 1 also takes off much harder. Scrubs a little speed but there's always a trade off. Ran it since last year.....

    Before anyone buys that "gen 2 riva" I suggest you look into a stock 2021 gp grate.....

    But here’s the thing, that Riva grate is stainless much stronger then the oem cast aluminum. For a stock ski yea, but not a 80-90 mph ski.
    At least not for me
