    rr retainers,rr lightened camshaft sproket,rr camchain tensioner need opinion, advise

    hi all,

    many of you all know my issue wouldlike after solving my problem to put back my oem spring and put RR retainers since I don't have riva base washers and can't find them alone.

    My question is how long can I use rr retainers?

    what's the benefit of using the rr lightened camshaft?

    why using rr camchain tensioner ?

    thanks for guiding me.

    My question is how long can I use rr retainers? 25 Hours and this also depends on the hours on your ski

    what's the benefit of using the rr lightened camshaft? Never ran it but should hypothetically perform better since it;s lightened, better off buying a type 29 cam off an 04-05

    why using rr camchain tensioner ?When you use the RR head gasket(2Blade) You will need to tighten then chain more as it gets a little loose with that head gasket

    thanks for guiding me.

    Not sure how long the Riva kit lasts, people have many hours on them and none have failed that I have heard.

    No clue but I wouldn't recommend running them without the washers.

    The full Riva valve train kit shown here will last the life of your ski
    RIVA Sea-Doo Valve Train Upgrade Kit [RS19050-VTU] - $599.95 : PWCPerformance.com

    The kit uses titanium retainers. The kit will enable safe operation to 8800 RPM's. I know others that have run 9000+ with this kit, but it's advisable to also use the Ferrea lightweight valves when running 8800 or more RPM's.

    This kit is rated at 8450, but I have known many people to run it at 8600 with no problems

    I was under the assumption that rr tensioner was for use with their head gasket AND rr head which is milled down quite a bit which created all the extra slack in the chain (hence thr need for a longer tensioner) .... anyone care to chime in?
