    Riva EFI repair

    Well I had my ski back to mostly stock and took the EFI controller out and put it in what I thought was a safe place. I was incorrect and my mothers dog got a hold of it. Do you think this can be repaired? Or am I completely out of luck?

    If its just chewed up broken wires I don't see why it can't be repaired.

    Yes, just broken wires. I don't have much electrical knowledge and didn't know if there might be an issue with resistance.

    "We have the technology", yes it can be done. Take time strip the wires carefully to allow for new ends to be matched. Use good in-line wire connectors ... should be not problem

    If you don't think you can do it your self, take it by a TV/electronics rerair shop and they should be able to do it for you for a few dollars. Tommy Jordan

    Thanks guys, I think I'll try it myself using good marine heat shrink butt connectors. Gonna be a little shorter than it was as I guess she ate some of the wire haha.

    How's everything been going Tommy? Do y'all still come down here to ride?

    I think I would solder and heat shrink the connections. It would be a neater repair and make for a much smaller bundle of wires.

    Marine electronics really need to be 100% reliable. Corrosion and moisture can work their way into even the slightest gap or oversight.

    I would look into removing the pins from the connectors so replacement wires can be installed, rather than splicing. Depending on the connector, a special tool may be needed to extract or install the pins.

    Splicing repair CAN work, but you need to be sure you are getting every single connection not only electrically solid and also 100% sealed.

    It looks like the broken wire stubs are truncated rather short, so crimp connections are going to be difficult in the restricted space.

    The wires that have been chewed but not actually severed, may internally be fragile. Personally, I would also replace those wires, to err on the side of caution.

    i agree with K447, source the correct terminal ends and use new marine grade wire, the correct tools will make it much easier to repair
