    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.

    FLUSHING 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.

    Couple of questions...


    How long do you run ski for to adequately flush( and I assume just on idle . )

    If flushing through the standard Seadoo flush point , won't water flow into the riva cooler the same way as standard and flush cooler ?

    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?

    Thx

    I don't understand the thought process with the cooler flush line on the Gen 3

    When using the factory flush location..... the water flow is reversed through the cooler.

    I believe when you connect directly to the cooler it hits the cooler with more pressure.

    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.
