    FX1 - Best Intake Grate

    I have a stock 1995 FX1.

    I only know about the Stock, Pro-Tec and Blowsion intake grates for the FX1.

    My previous experience on a slightly modded '93 550sx was that a top loader actually increased porpoising for me, so I went back to the stock three bar intake grate.

    So, any suggestions, comments on which is "best" and for what conditions it is best?

    In a related thread there were votes for all three aftermarket ride plates for the FX1:


    Jet Dynamics
    Pro-Tec
    Shredmaster

    Does a particular intake grate work better with a particular ride plate or vice a versa?

    Just go with the Pro-Tec, since you going with their ride plate.
    That's what Lester at Tsunami runs on his. Has Pro-tec pipe as well.
    I have Riva intake and plate on mine with a B-pipe and other basic mods.
    It's a fast squirrelly ski. I never ride it in choppy water conditions (Lake chop)
    However the river current helps to keep it smooth for where you ride.

    SOLD! for $65 best offer with free shipping on ebay, not the prettiest Pro-Tec intake grate, but I can clean it up and try it.

    Would still appreciate anyone else's suggestions on intake grates for the FX1.

    R&D is best, but good luck finding one!

    Which R&D? Another person recommended the R&D Aquavein. And you are correct, I can't even find an image of one on the internet. And what ride plate do you use with it?

    Yes, the Aquavane. They haven’t been produced in many years. Personally, I like the stock ride plate best, but it probably depends on how you ride.
