    Riva gen III intercooler on 2012-2013 TX and PX or any other sea doo

    Are you guys flushing them independently like Riva says?

    If so how can you run the engine w/o the flush kit connected to the ski?

    the instructions show a tee on the bleed line for the flush tube, how the heck can you reach that on a PX?

    its so far back in the hull I don't even think you can reach it w/o taking the ski apart.

    And wouldn't it leak out of the end of the flush hose?

    Can you just plumb it like stock and flush as normal?

    Can you please tell me your installation technique and the way you care for it?

    Thinking of getting one w the hard pipes and need your advice.

    Thank you for your help and input.

    If you relocate the I/C it makes working on the ski much easier. In order to do that you must install a rear exhaust. Both are sold by SFR. Cleans up the hull and make access much easier on the PX.

    TX is easy as the rear doors provide access.

    When riding in salt water I flush the ski using Salt Away with engine adapter. I have never used the I/C flush line supplied with the kit.

    Thanks ! That's what I thought about flushing. Did you run the relief line out of the hull like stock?

    I removed the round BRP sticker and ran the I/C pisser line to a fitting.

    Is it 1/4 inch? Is that the same as the stock size?

    I have flushed with both, but not convinced it makes any difference. The water flush's either way.

    I called Riva and asked them if I needed to set it up per their instructions. The tech I spoke to said that setting it up per their instructions flushes it better than setting it up the stock way, but that it still gets flushed when setting it up the stock way. So, I set it up the stock way. No problems so far, and I ride almost all salt water.
