    Riva Wedge

    I am installing the wedge I got from the store, and I am confused. Where the wedge connects to the nozzle, I am not sure where the washers go. It only comes with one washer, and a washer with a sleeve. I think the washers go on either side of the nozzle connection, but that means the nut or screw head (depending which way you put it through) tightens down on the ball in the joint at the end of the wedge??? The directions don't tell you. Here is a pic of what I think, can someone tell me what order it all goes in?

    Thanks

    Currently left to right looking at it from back of ski

    nut...wedge...washer with sleeve...nozzle...washer...screw head

    Anyone else have an opinion?

    I flipped the bolt and tihgtened it down. Used blue loctite. The bolt is barely long enough to go through the nut. Riva gives you the nylon lock nut and bolt, but the bolt barely goes through the nylon lock nut. Is this normal?

    pretty similar to mine i suspect. for what its worth i do a good walk around my ski (kinda like truck drivers and their rigs) before i ride. just a quick check for loose/missing/broken bolts nuts hoses etc. only takes 1 minute and could save ya major hassel.

    maybe just me but it helps ease my mind. im always tinkering with something and hey, no ones perfect, we all forget to tighten something, replace tie wraps, etc.
