    Post your story. We all know there are issues with hard starts and low idle that they can not seem to remedy.

    The idle issue/hard start should be address to Jerry GH and Rob at RMS, mine was fixed and idle corrected because I had Rob to modify my parameters, RPM 1800 and takes 7 crank to start up when is cold (close loop).
    I tried to use their new map and did not work so I have to go back to my modified map so far so good on rude3.
    Stage4.
    Hope this issue gets solved soon.

    I returned mine, I was told it was not compatible with some skis, numerous phone calls, did the login, just never ran right.

    Can you elaborate some? Any new product will have issues on initial release. Riva is working hard to sort out all the problems. Im sure in a few months everything will be addressed. Just have to be patient

    Really?? Have installed on a few skis and all are running well, including a 2008 RXP motor installed in GPR with modified harness and Yamaha TPS.

    Just curious as to the issues is all.

    Chad has called several times and talked to Rob/Bubba and the latest thing they told him was that he needed a free flow pipe.. WTH really?? Chad is contemplating going Motec but Im trying to get him to hold on to the Athena in hopes they sort it out.

    We have so far only tried the stock and stage 2 maps and they both have the same issues. He has the Riva RRFPR and he sets up everything per their specs.

    He has made MULTIPLE calls. One of the guys (Robert) I think said he would tune the ski when he is in the area this month though. I believe chad is holding off changing things until that.

    Oh and are their any instructions on how to use the maya software to tune anywhere?
