    Riva Power Filter Install

    Just started to remove the stock intake on my 06 RXP. When you remove the stock intake, you remove from the supercharger up. The airbox on the gas tank gets removed, and the straps over top of it just get reconnected. Do they hold down the gas tank, or can they be removed. They don't seem very tight.

    yes they hold the gas tank in place... as long as they a taut ur in good shape. if u want to be a little cautious you can get 4" PVC pipe and put it under the straps, that'll take up the slack.

    by the way... welcome to the forum!!!! let us know if u have any further questions.

    damn that gave me an idea for my new Riva High Flow hood. I wanted to keep the bucket but was wondering how I was going to keep it in place everytime I opened it up. Thanks for the pics.

    I just re strapped the tank down without the pvc.....I think those that used the pipe did it for added security....they may ride in fairly rough conditions.

    This is also true, but there was not enough tension in our particular ski...PR...

    Well got it all installed. Those front bolts are a pain in the ars to put in. I wanted them in tho, didn't want to zip tie it. I am turning 7780 rmp's, air temp in the 90's water also in the 90's. I checked the oil and it is a tad above the upper notch. Is that what is slowing them down? Brand new wear ring, 14/19r impeller. No wedge.

    yes, you want the oil at least by the upper mark or lower, they say it should be inbetween the indent on the dipstick..
