    Activating a RIVA ECU is a PIA!!!

    So I ordered a riva ECU. Had it over nighted so I could get my ski running. Just to find out its next to impossible to activate the stupid thing. The setup is in my polaris therefor I do not have a Seadoo HIN and I sold my old ECU so I dont have that. When I ordered the ECU I told the guy my whole story. He starts telling me I need to find someone with the same year make and model ski that my setup came from (like they are a dime a dozen). I have to call riva with this "friend's" hin and ECU serial to get an activation code. I then have to take both my ski and his to the dealer to get the RIVA ECU working. I went out and found someone willing to bend over backwards for me and lucky me, They're ski was already at the dealer getting some warranty work. So I call up RIVA and decided to ask is I was going to void my friends warranty. He gives a chuckle and goes oh yeah his warranty is going right out the window. Ya like I was supposed to know that. Im so glad I paid overnight shipping for absolutely no reason.

    So my main question is.... Does anyone know how to get this thing working without having to ship it back to RIVA? Because he said a local dealer in Fl can "perform magic" in my situation. I feel that being I told this guy my whole story that he should have just activated it before he mailed it to me.
