    buzz noise with riva ic

    got my riva ic installed and it now makes a buzz noise at some rpms or at a right turn and this is in my fzr, has anyone had this problem i was thinking of putting some foam or something in between the hull and the bov and ic pipe, just wondering if anyone has had the same problem?

    Take it back to Riva and have them fix it. You have the warranty! from Riva! Or wait tell the rivets wear through the intercooler and wear a hole in the intercooler. How many HRS on your ski? Better look at the super charger clutch before that blows with your boost! Lee

    same problem here , the BOV is too close to the inside of the ski also engine flex doesn't help.

    +1 BOV is rubbing against the hull causing vibration specially on right hand turns

    Sell the Riva and get the JD intercooler. No problems with space on that one. Everything fits comfortably, it outperforms the Riva intercooler (supposedly), and is cheaper.
