    Riva powercooler water exit.

    I have seen a few people running the riva powercooler from the standard water exit pisser as apposed to the rear exit pisser that riva provides.
    Has anyone had any problems running the standard exit pisser?
    Did you have to make anything bigger?
    Thanks darren

    i have herd of the hose blowing off due to the extra pressure
    drill the exit nozzle as large as you can
    or better yet get a 1/2" through hull fitting and put that in place of the standard exit nozzle
    the reason riva send it to the back of the ski is so you can get to the hose to tighten it up
    so if you use the side exit you need to put the hose on first then poke it through the ski and put the nut on the outside

    maybe but you do have to be carefull about not making the hole too big so that there is not enough meat to hold the hose tight

    I'm running mine through the standard pisser hole on the side of the hull. I saw no point in adding more holes when I already had one. However, I did use the bigger pisser that came with the kit to ensure the higher flow of water could escape.

    Sealed it up good and ensured it was tight before re-install because it's not easy at all to get to. Thats why I believe they route it to the rear. Nothing against the above reply from fx160, but mines clean with no big eyesores so IMO there are other ways.

    My advice to anyone regardless of what the line does or goes to is to replace all clamps with Oetiker clamps. Hoses popping off will be a thing to never worry about provided it's done correctly.

    Come clean--did you really get an Oetiker on the Riva pisser you installed in the OEM spot?

    I tried for what seemed like forever WITH THE ENGINE REMOVED FROM THE SKI and couldn't get it. Not even a hose clamp. Had to be bailed out by my buddy.
