    Thank you Riva!

    So I dropped my 260 off at riva to get the upgraded pump shaft and exhaust filter done, plus a few other things and full tune up check the ski etc. so yesterday I take the ski out, I nail it for like 40 seconds and buzzer and code F1. Stop the ski hull has mad water in it and the pipe looks like this. Click image for larger version.

    That's as tight as the clamp will go so obv wrong hose clamp. So I'm like ok whatever one wrong hose clamp is understandable go buy one and take the ski out today. Boost it for like maybe a minute stop and pop the seat mad water and this hose is off.

    Hull once again has water like over the coupler, so I smoke like 5 cigarettes put the hose back on and idle it back to the trailer. No code or buzzer this time I just don't trust their work at this point so I popped the seat. Saltaway the isht out of everything for the second day in a row fog the blower and now I'm not trusting their work, what if every hose they touched has the wrong size clamp on it? So I'm dropping this thing off to them the second they open but I have a few questions.

    First of all could my brand new exhaust filter be toasted?

    Second can I have engine damage? My ski had 26 hrs on it when I picked it up and it still has 26 on it lol. Do I need to make them show me the compression test readings or anything?

    What's the deal here I just moved from NYC and I thought riva is like top ski place around.

    Do you think I need to worry about engine damage or the exhaust filter? I'm still under warranty

    What is the deal with the service at Riva?

    So it turns out it wasn't Riva who put these weird clamps in my ski, it was Rusty Palmer Kawasaki when they warrantied the blower. Should have it back in a few days. They told me at Rusty Palmer that they water tested the ski what bs and they didn't even put Kawi oem clamps in the ski when they did the blower.

    They were really cool about it at riva and said they are going to get my ski back to how it should be and water test it so I won't have anymore problems.
