    Talking Installed Riva Free Flow Today...

    Just finished installing my Riva Free Flow Kit... All went well - however - no one seemed to mention how much of a PIA tightening the second hose clamp was going to be on the exhaust outlet - OMG! I used a few chioce words while doing that - everything else was a breeze. So, enough of that - I was wondering if you guys thought I should call Kawasaki and thank them for the free tools they left in my hull???? There were 7 unused rivets, 2 zip ties, 12mm socket, 10mm socket, 1 hose clamp and one bolt - not to mention the 43 pounds of excessive silicone everywhere in the hull. Just got everything back together - my dealer just called and said my wedge was in - so I am heading to get it to install it - then I am plugging the ride plate holes and polishing the bottom and hopefully hittin the water in the morning.

    When I installed my R-Rated exhaust, I found a bolt sitting down in the hull.

    Hey EarthShaker - Didn't take any while in the process - it's all back together now and you can barely even see the exhaust tube - sure does sound better - can't wait to hit the water....
