    If you delete the 2 included RIVA stickers, does the price drop to $499?

    I'm sorry, but that price seems way out of line. It's like Riva has stopped making good products for watercraft riders and switched to ripping off its customers for everything they can get. It's like mgmt there said "Ok boys, lets just see how desperate they are out there, tripple what it should sell for, and see if they will pay."

    This is what happens when your competition goes away.

    I seen the pics and thought it was cool , kinda gp1300r duel outlet (that 1 guy built)

    But Wow Dat Price Doe ..
    So,, Automotive design means,, if you think about Pininfarina as you design = Ferrari pricing ..

    I would never pay that much to put duels on car I have ever owned...never mind a ski (unless it unlocked 7+ mph hahaha)
    Who is in charge of pricing? Can i get his dealer/dispensary location because Dam that shit must be the sticky icky.

    Every time Riva comes out with a new product we go through this. I never understand all the whining about price, no one is forcing anyone to buy it. I tip my hat to Riva for there continued innovation and support of our sport.

    I usually don't buy things that produce virtually no improvement in HP but I might have to have one of these setups...hell I might buy 2 kits and go quad exhaust.

    Well very easy to explain

    The Pricing on all tuning Parts went uo even on older Parts...why ? because the customers will pay it and then the companys make more money...

    why are sponsons close to 500 USD now ? same thing as 20 years ago right ?

    you can compare automotive parts and jetski parts...same stuff... the jetski parts are way overpriced

    If you think boat parts are over priced, you should buy airplane parts.

    There's a lot more testing, quality assurance and documentation with aircraft parts vs boat parts.

    I think the Riva pricing has more to do with what the market will accept vs what it cost to manufacture the product and sell it with a nominal profit margin.
