    Do you mean fit rivas new plate?? If so yes you can do it at home. Remove the pipes ect ect inside the ski and fitt openloop cooling. Then remove the jet pump. Remove the 6 bolts from the ride plate and take the intake grate off. put a bottle jack with block of wood on top and jack the plate off. Remove all old sealent and re-seal and bolt the new plate on. Could have all that done in an afternoon. R88

    With a belt sander and die grinder (and a lot of time and patience), you can make a stock plate look like this... it does wonders!
