Riva Speed Control Override Module on 300x
Today I installed my Riva speed limiter bypass and there were a few things I noticed and learned that I wanted to share with everyone.
Before I get started....
Install was very easy and only took a few minutes. Anyone can do it in my opinion if you add my instructions to Riva's.
First is something I could not believe they did not say first and I recommend any time you work on your ski......... DISCONNECT THE BATTERY
Second is REMOVE THE ECU BRACKET FROM THE BULKHEAD
This will make everything much easier and the only way you can have room for your hands to route the wires. It just pulls out towards the bow.
Third is BE SURE THE MODULE IS ALL THE WAY AGAINST THE BACK OF THE ECU BRACKET (Picture 3 in instructions)
That is the only way you can easily reinstall the ECU cover in the bulkhead
Fourth WHEN RUNNING THE WIRES THROUGH THE RUBBER GROMMET, FIRST RUN A SMALL WIRE FROM THE BATTERY SIDE THROUGH THE OPENING AND REACH THROUGH THE OPENING IN THE BULKHEAD TO RETRIEVE THE SMALL WIRE YOU PUSHED THROUGH. PASS THE END OF YOUR SMALL WIRE THROUGH THE EYES OF THE MODULE WIRES, TWIST BACK ON ITSELF AND TAPE. aLSO TAPE OVER THE EYES AND YOUR WIRE.
This is SO much easier than trying to feed the wires the way the instructions state. Pull the wire you have pushed through slowly and carefully and your module wires will come right through.
EDIT: Upon testing I found one more thing that you will need to be sure of. The white wire that replaces the one instructed to remove from the harness NEEDS TO BE PUSHED ALL THE WAY IN. I got a fault code on my first test run. F1 (SPSE) so I unplugged and replugged the white wire (a few times) and it finally cleared. IF YOU GET A FAULT CODE AND ALARM AFTER INSTALLING, TRY THIS FIRST. You will have to really push it in there.
I hope this helps you with your install.

Just installed mine- your advice was right on. The white wire that Riva uses has thicker insulation than the brown/white wire it replaces making it hard to insert into the connector all the way. A little work with a emery board to thin it down made the job just a little easier.

Problem.....After about an hour of riding.....every thing was going fine.... hit a big bump an F1 code pops up. Load on trailer check white wire and all is well. After several attempts could not get light off. Removed the by pass and went back and plugged in the original brown/white wire,,,still SPSN code....any ideas????

Above my knowledge level if is more than just not having a good enough connection to satisfy the ECU. Good luck with this.

Yes I was able to. It was tough getting it to lock but it will.
