    RIVA junk

    well guess what guys.Just spoke with a David Rich and a Rob A from RIVA. They will not do anything for me regarding the SPONSON that broke. They stated a 30 day WARRANTY...what the heck is RIVA thinking. They have no reponsibility twards there products when they fail. My ski only has 80 hrs. on her.I have been a RIVA guy since 2000. My ski has so many RIVA advertisments,and products on her you would think they would take care of a GOOD customer. I have 3,000 in riva parts on my ski. This week I'm shaving off my RIVA decals. I will be down grading RIVA from now on.
    GOOD WORK RIVA...you lost a good customer.

    I used a paint stir stick that I sharpened with grinder...sharp stick and goo off works very well...like a wooden chisel...I got some more stickers to remove as well.

    Warranties don't mean chit nowadays... companies aren't willing to back up their product, because that reduces the profit margin and it always is the customer who loses.

    They'll probably claim that you damaged it somehow, or didn't install it correctly, or some bogus stuff like that.

    Now... if you complain of neck injuries because of anything that happened due to that sponson breaking... THAT is how you get results in America!

    Well they couldnt say I installed it wrong when RIVA YAMAHA @ 3671 North Dixie Highway, Pompano Beach FL. 33064 installed the stage II kit with the UMI, carb, setups. They just stated it ONLY has a 30 DAY warranty,even when they install them.

    30 day warranty is especially shitty, when out of a 30 day period the average 9-5er has what, 8 days to ride?
