    Thanks for the info. I been keeping an eye out but no luck. Trying to find out exactly how the stock ones modified.

    Trying to find a pic, but you basically cut the wings off, leaving only the center scoop.

    I never personally ran one. There was a member here years ago that did back to back testing against the Riva, Worx and R&D. The R&D was fastest followed by the modified stock grate. I rarely ride rough water so, top speed was always top priority.

    Where would be the best place to start for the biggest gain? Intake manifold mod kit, or kanaflex 4" air intake or the 83mm nozzle?

    Pretty much the intake manifold delete and 4 inch kanaflex.
    Anything more and you'll have to spend thousands of dollars and achieve less reliability.
