    Riva BOV hose broken @ 35-40 hrs.

    I think the Riva Bov is junk! No way should an almost $400 part break in as little as 35-40 hrs. maybe less.Now I need the new blue hose. Any ideas on how to get a new one?

    Will either have to contact Riva or see if the one from R&D fits! Time to upgrade to a Tial kit. After doing some research there seems to be quite a few complaints about the Riva HKS BOV. I'll be going with a Tial.

    I had the valve fail in about 3 hours of use wich the shop replaced straight away for me.I zip tyed myn to the breather pipe that goes to the intake its solid as a rock now.I think the riva design pipe is not the best the amount of banging up and down and the weight of the valve can only lead to one thing.Also added a screw clamp to the breather pipe were it attaches to the inlet pipe.
