    RIVA pump extension installation

    My friend Jim (ou812) said that would be a good question for the forum, and here we are..

    Looking forward to install the RIVA pump extension kit on my 07RXP

    I m thinking of keeping the OPAS stock.
    Has anyone try it??
    Is there any trick to do it??

    The RIVA instructions dosen't make it clear enough. Here is http://www.rivaracing.com/instructio...080_pek_50.pdf(Here is the part of the instructions 45) If O.P.A.S. was removed previously proceed to step 46. Reconnect O.P.A.S. arms to brackets at thru hull fittings.
    NOTE: Use BLUE Loc-Tite. Do not over tighten bolts. )

    Thanks

    Bill

    You need to ditch the training wheels. The only way to keep the opas is to make up an extension. Why do you want to keep the opas?

    Pump extension is probably the best thing you can do to an RXP. GL.

    Looking at the instructions is does appear that you can keep it! I didn't think there was enough swing in the arms. I'd already ditched mine when I put the extension on.

    Pull the pump, test fit the spacer and pump back up and see if the arms bolt back up. Am interested to see now.
