    rxpx 260 riva trim tab install

    so i broke down and got the riva trim tabs, whether they actually improve anything or not they sure do look better than the stock plastic ones, i out up some before and after pics, the main tabs are ver easy to install but the upper brackets where the turn buckles attach to are extremely difficult, i am pretty tall with long arms and i could barely reach the back of the ski from the inside to attach the washer and nuts for the bracket bolts, riva has tips in the instructions to super glue the washer to the nut but that still doesn't help you actually reach the backside of the bolt, i am a mechanic at a car dealership so i do this stuff all day long but this is one of the hardest jobs i have down in awhile, once the nuts are attached inside the hull if you have a few extensions that you can put together to make about a 4 foot long extension it will help a lot, its all downhill after you get the nuts on, i set these up just stock to see if i can tell a difference, I'm guessing i won't feel anything, it would be cool if they were remotely adjustable. they look pretty serious though, very well built. just thought i would post about these, ill post results from riding in a week or so

    Something that might make the install a bit easier,

    I sell them here in Aus and they work a treat! Works like a toggle but a LOT stronger and you won't need to access the inside, pulls up like a rivet and use your standard stainless bolt.
