    almost got killed on 09 Rxt x

    One of my skis has a stage one kit from riva. It a 2009 SEADOO RXT X 255
    It threw me off at top speed of high seventies, there are other mods on ski
    I went over the bars, the venturi which is located in front of jet housing snapped all four M8 bolts sheered right off! I was racing a 260 Rxt x with stage II kit, I always remove the front bucket and my rear seat, with added vents on hull, my ski flies!!! Very fast, on flat glass type water it can hit 80-82 all day.
    I'm very concerned and wondering if I should sell it???

    I think the installation person over tightened the bolts on the venturi housing!
    Are there other aftermarket bolts out there that are stronger and rustproof???

    This ski has thrown me off 3 times now, I'm done. In doubt and very unsure of its safety.

    You got to have some Kind of pump our alignment issue/shaft.

    If you are truly hitting 82 mph with a Riva Stg. 1 kit, I would be looking into some PRV's.

    And like Shrabber says, check your driveline, pump shoe and motor alignment.....

    You beat me to it.
    What all mods does this RXT have? Tread carefully though.........there are 1 or 2 trolls around here that will straight up call you a liar, even with videos and pics

    +1 prv's, alignment

    Once your north of 77mph its a very dangerous sport.
    Maybe that's why the coast guard limits speeds to upper 60's.
