    How to install RIVA GRATE ?

    I searched Rivas site but couldnt find anything....what exactly do I need to do...I know I have to remove the stock one....and then clean up the surface on the hull, then use Silicone (what color?) and put it all over the thing...like where it touches the hull right? anyone have pics of exactly where? and then should I use Loctite on the bolts when I reinstall and what is the Torque on those bolts? thanks!

    you can download the instructions in the technical section. There is a thread titled something like "Riva parts instructions"

    permatex ultra black, blue loctite, and snug em up.

    a torque wrench has never touched any part of my ski that's direct bolt on... supercharger and head bolts are only places i'd use a torque wrench

    If you have a heat gun,heat the top of the bolts a little and it will help stop the incerts from turning.

    prolly better to use a soldering iron on the heads of the bolts if you have to...
    first time I removed grate I didn`t need to heat them up. there is controversial thoughts on this...PR...
