Riva Reduction Nozzle Cracked (Pics/Video)
Had a very interesting ride, yesterday. Since this is the first time I have had this thing on the water since it was purchased a few weeks ago. I “Eased” in to the power and tried to understand the power band.
Upon opening her up about ¾” throttle (I was FLYING BTW), the FZS started to get sideways/erratic on me. Racing sport bikes for the past few years and dealing with high sides, my instinct kicked in. I stayed in to the throttle, tried to straighten her out, and let off. However, it was trying to throw me the hell off.
Afterwards, I lost most of my steering. Regardless of the amount of throttle. (see video just for kicks)
Upon arriving back on shore and getting her back on the trailer. I discovered this.
Does Riva sell replacement nozzle pumps? Or do they repair? Is this somewhat common? It appears the .83 ring is installed. Also, Jims Performance pitched 13/22R Dynafly prop.

I do not like the reduction nozzles with interchangable rings. If they come loose and lock your stearing nozzle you could run in to some thing or some one if you were in tight places at speed. I use oem nozzles bored out to differant sizes for testing. Tommy Jordan
