Riva gen 3 flushing
Hi guys ,
need some tips , I have a px260 2013
i wanting to install the riva intercooler to replace the undersized Seadoo cooler
im wondering if I install the riva intercooler , how the flush kit works, the factory item gets flushed whilst flushing the ski through the flush kit in the rear of the hull.
Will the riva install the same was so I can flush as per standard?

You will flush the craft using the stock fitting in the transom and you will flush our Power Cooler separately. Here are the steps are outlined on page 4 of the instructions.
- RIVA Power Cooler must be flushed independently of motor using supplied flush kit fitting. This can be done before or after flushing motor using stock Sea•Doo flush point.
- Engine must be running (on) when flushing RIVA Power Cooler.
- Do not over-rev engine when flushing or blowing out motor afterwards.

Only a minute or two is necessary. Make sure your water supply has adequate pressure.
When using our Power Coolers built in flush point you are flushing in the reverse direction so any debris caught against the cooling fins in the inlet end should be forced out of the cooling system.
TIP: Always use a salt/deposit cleaning solution like Salt-Away. Even in fresh water mineral and detritus deposits will build up over time decreasing your intercoolers efficiency and effectiveness.

Hi Mr. RIVA crew
For the GEN 3 IC, is there also a relocation kit for a 2011 RXT-X?
Was looking at http://www.4-tecperformance.com , looked like only for other / older models.
So only changing stock hoses for piping can be done than?

No, we do not offer a "relocation kit" for the S3 hull. A great performance upgrade for your craft is our Intercocoler Tubing Upgrade Kit. You will need to order the Blow-off Valve Kit separately. An even better upgrade is our GEN-3 Power Cooler. It's larger and more efficient than the smaller OEM intercooler.
With those two upgrades you will see noticeable performance gains.
