Riva OPEN Loop Cooling temp test results from today.
I will be doing some back to back tests soon of the Riva Thermo and the Fizzle thermo with a few different combinations.
Here are my results today.
PUMP WASHER: Stock
MAX RPM 8680
AIR TEMP 86
WATER TEMP 75
OIL COOLING LINES HOOKED UP
WATER PUMP IMPELLER STILL IN
water routing pump,strainer,xs,water pump inlet per rivas instructions.
THe SKI warmed up incredibly fast and eventually settled a 162 (3 Minutes)
WOT TEMP MAX 167
One thing I did notice is that after a WOT run the minute you let off the throttle the temp would spike to between 183-189 but within 5 seconds it was right back at 162. Im Assuming this is because of the momentary fluctuation in water flow/pressure across the head from Rapid Deceleration.
Next time out I will do back to back runs with the riva and fizzle thermos (have 2 thermostats james gave me) and I will also try the bigger washer to see if it makes any difference.

That thing will be smoking once you get it dailed in. You coming to MB right?
Your running 9:5.1 pistons now? Could you tell a difference? I could notice a big change in hole shot with mine. Where as before it would break the prop loose once, it now breaks the prop loose 2-3 times from an idle.

Stock pistons and bottom end. Did swap to 04 cam though. Plan on coming yes

For some reason I thought you went with higher comp pistons.
Look fwd to meeting you and seeing that ski run.

All I did over the winter was the following.
Full Riva Valvetrain
Stock Valves lightened
9.2K Les ECU
04 Cam swap
I did the Riva Plate right before the Drags.

Thanks guys, After some of the posts I have read I expected things to be a bit warmer with the stock riva washer but to my surprise they were not.
