    Riva cooler thermostat kit

    I just opened one of these up. Pretty damn cool. Everything you need to mod your thermostat to a cooler 158 degrees. It even comes with a set of Oetiker pliers. I always wanted a set of those

    Ever tried to split the stock thermostat housing...Good luck...how does it tell you to do that?? If your wreck the housing then you have to purchase the RR thermostat anyways..lol...What do the directions tell you Jerry??I have played around with the old housing from my ski...I ended up breaking it in frustration just to see what type of thermostat was in there..lol..

    It actually comes with a tool that takes the inlet off the thermostat. Looks pretty simple. I think i may buy one of these kits for myself and do my stock thermo that I took off of my ski.

    I love learning how things work

    Jerry do you think the Riva thermostat has any advantage over the RR thermostat?

    The only advantage is cheaper price. They are identical in that they are both 158 degree thermostats.

    The RR is less hassle. Bolt it on and go.

    See i have a RR thermostat that i got for $100 shipped. It has a small chip and crack in one of the hose barbs but i think it can be repaired. If someone buys the Riva kit i'd pay shipping to borrow their tool to take the housing apart and put the thermostat in my stock housing.

    Thats the thing with the Riva kit. It's for one use. You damage your stock inlet cap taking it off and the Riva kit provides a billet piece to replace it with.
