RIVA Catch can hose ?
I installed the Riva catch can in my ski , but the hose that is provided in the kit comes kinked because of the way it comes packaged. I figures it woul go back to its regular shape after some time, but I recently looked at it and it still looks the same. The link is not really bad but enough to obstuct the flow. Does this make a diffence or should I not worry about it. I was thinking of getting a water line that has thicker walls so that it wont bend that easily and not allow the hose to kink...

It is most likely a tad too long or a tad too short.
I cut a little less than 1/4 inch at a time and see how it looks.
If the kink is on the engine side it is too long.
If the kink is on the hull side it is too short.
the other thing is if you compare the hose that came with the kit and the stock hose you removed you should find the stock hose is much stiffer. The riva hose is more suseptible to collaspe than the stock hose.

I just cut my stock hose to fit the catch can and it worked fine.

yeah, it`s just crappy heater hose...
I did the same thing, cut little off at a time to avoid kinks, but still have a small one, not worried about it though., have to allow for movement. The gases are forced out, blowing thru and the filter element is large enough not to cause a restriction, so in any case you would think it would expand is there was a surge...PR...
