Riva rear air for offshore....
Any offshore riders running the riva rear air? I dont do alot of wave jumping but i do ride the great lakes. I dont think ive ever read a post where someones sucked water in?

we run the riva rear air offshore without the red prefilter and have no problems in the ruffest water possible that the atlantic ocean can throw at us. the only time that we have had any probems is when wave jumping or having your buddy riding to close to you and the spray from his hull can force some water into your rear intake.... but still we never had to get towed in or broke down from the water ingestion. also if your running in fresh water i really would not give it a 2nd thought..... go for it.
hope this helps.

if you're riding offshore in heavy surf,getting air,4-6tf waves,I'd run the hell away from that intake
do a search.....there are numerous ones of water ingestion.IF water does get in,its going STRAIGHT into you're SC.
do a search....don't think even Jerry recommends it for salt/offshore.

Dont jump waves, dont do spinnies, and dont hang out with friends that like to spray you and it wont be a problem.

Me personally I wouldnt run it on my ski. I know how we ride offshore in 4 foot seas and wouldnt trust my engine to the rear air intake offshore. If you were in rivers lakes etc, then ok. I tried back to back tests with 4" front air intake and a 45 degree hose comming up in the back grabing fresh air and saw no difference so why risk it. If you are doing heavy offshore riding I would do the 4" front air intake for less than $100.

Ran it and gave it away....i do alot of wavejumping and if you come off a huge wave your ass end sinks completely under water and can you say water in your oil........get a 4 inch or riva powerfilter...

I will have a 4" aswell. I dont wave jump as i feel its hard on the hull. Im on a bay, Goggle Long Point bay. I also have some ideas to help prevent water from getting in the prefilter. It will also come in handy at MB or when i know itll be calm out. All the thread ive read where there was water ingestion it could of been prevented.
