You guys might want to start drilling/tapping these intercoolers and installing sacrificial anodes if this continues.

Salt water riders = Problem
Fresh water riders = no problem

I will have to say that RXT have more intercoolers leak than RXP but I have fixed both. The out come is not good if you keep runnning them. One was a fresh water boat. You could see were the solder was not applied right in the bad spot. I got seadoo to warrenty it even though it was out of warrenty. RXT I think were built first in 05 with the new style intercooler ( Solder probs?). I have not had a 06 in my shop yet with a leaking intercooler (anyone else?).
THere are built massive with big copper cores so they only weak link would be the solder?

Snapper, now that you mention it the last 06 IC i looked at did have beefier coils than the older models

Is this just an issue with the Riva's?? I bought my RR one used,and haven't had any issues(all salt riding)...I flush w/salt away after every ride...

salt water riders only
salt water riders if u have your crank vent disconnected or if u are running a catch can make sure to spray some wd40 into your intake frequently to keep the salt from eating your CS and your IC , the reason why the crank went connects to the air intake is corrosion protection from salt , the oil entering the intake will coat and protect the SC and the IC , in my opinion those with the new riva rear intake should spray wd40 into intake at the end of the day to disolve the salt build up
