RXT OPAS blockoffs
My dad just got an '06 RXT and im already going to install my old blockoffs on his ski cuz it handles teribble. i looked at the riva instructions to make sure i had everything. im not to fimilar with the RXT and one part says to unhook that hose on the pump and block it off. why do u have to remove that. just courious and what happens if i don't?

you flood the hull with water of you don't
inside the ski you can connect the two hoses together and make a loop.... you can cap off the nipple splitter that's above the pump housing.... you can remove all of that all together and get a plate from PPG that bolts over that hole...

steve what is that hose for? im in new territory. so if u leave tha hoses there i will fill the hull with water. damn would my dad be pissed. haha

the 3-seater OPAS system moves up and down with water pressure... so there's a pretty high amoutn of water flowing thru that the hose from the venturi into that fitting in the top of the hull.
when u remove the fins on the outside, u disconnect those 2 water supply lines and put the plates on.... if you dont remove all those water lines, disconnect the venturi fitting, block it all off you'll have GALLONS of water pumping in there within seconds.
IMO... call PPG and get the OPAS plate for the RXT splitter... it's the safest way to prevent any leaks

Someone give him a pic and measurements. They are $26 and his dad can make it for nothing.

remove that splitter piece completely... it's held in by 2 screws and a chitload of black silicone. keep cutting the silicone and twisting and pulling and it will come out. then ur left with a round hole and two screw inserts around it... make a plate to cover the hole, drill holes, put silicone on the plate, and screw it on there and call it a day.
