Last night I did the ribbon delete on out AR190. Used the RIVA ring and RIVA performance air filter. Took about an hour and was very easy. Hardest part was getting the dam filter and airbox back together. We are going out today to see how it does. I started it briefly after install and the engine sounded much throatier and deep. I liked it!!

You didn't leave the rubber insert in there right? Will definately f$$k up your engine. Let us know what you think.

If you use the RIVA ring the rubber insert can stay, it wraps around the ring (which replaces the ribbon).

You're right. Thanks for clarifying.

I came up with a pretty good solution for the front. I’ll have to find a pic

Testing out some shade solutions on the FSH 210. Think I'll get another one of these, real easy to use.
I like that. Can you share more info on it?

Update on ribbon delete....very happy, gained about 2, maybe 3mph top end, about 200 to 300 rpm. Engine had more mid range grunt and most noticeable was how much better it sounded. For an hours work and 150 bucks it's really a no brainer.Thank you Swatski and others, once again you guys were right on the money for this mod!!!

Finally added a "suicide knob", now I only wish I did it sooner!

@4x15mph I was thinking you may like it with your new rack and pinion steering.

I did the same, to me it’s a must upgrade. Easy to steer and helps me orient the wheel for true-forward when leaving the dock96180C95-653A-4E5B-8B3F-06FA21FC26D3.jpeg

Got my seadek from the group buy on Tuesday and last night I installed it. I rushed the job because I wanted sleep equally as much as I wanted it installed.. total time 1-2 hours very easy

Got my Seadek group buy in today, took off the old hydroturf off the swim deck and installed only the swim platform tonight. It wasn't as bad as I read so I was quite pleased. Now to install the rest of the cockpit tomorrow, do my 50 hour maintenance on the boat and head out to the sandbars this weekend. Thank you very much @JetBoatPilot for the awesome group buy and amazing customer service
