    You need to check to make sure these will fit your ski because I dont think they will! I had a 2000 XL1200 Limited (what these are made for) that I had these sponsons on (and loved them!)... then when I got my 2004 XLT and sold the XLL I took off the Riva sponsons thinking I could put them on the new ski but was wrong. They are mounted WAYYYY differently! One uses studs in the hull and the other uses bolts that go into inserts... you need to make sure which ones you have!

    Got these from Wayne and had to make a couple of small changes to get them on. Basically I just used a regular stainless bolts and washers as per his measurments and used simple small pieces of 3/8" ID-1/2"OD hose to center up the backing plate. They work perfectly. I took some pics and will post them later incase anyone else is wanting this information. Oh and Wayne is a great guy and a great seller. He would'nt take my money untill he was positive they were going to work and even supplied me with the propper hardware. A+

    Glad you were able to get them to work for you! They really helped out on my XLL

    I found another brand new set of these same sponsons


    I will include the hardware for them if they are to be used on a newer XLT. Doesn't change assembly/install time in any way, just use different fasteners and a little "bushing". Cake.

    On an older XL with hull studs no change is required.


    Jody, you need to update your signature now!

    It doesnt count untill they see water, I'll update after this weekend. :P

    Here are some pics of what I did. You can see the pics of the stock bolts and inserts. I just used new bolts and cut a slice of 3/8" id 1/2" od hose to act as my spacer. These only serve as a way to center the backing plate on the holes. after the backing plate and spacer plate are attatched, the sponson bolts up using the Riva supplied hardware. This is about as easy as it gets.
