    Water ingestion with Riva power filter?

    Yesterday was the first time out on the lake in the chop with the Riva power filter. I've also remvoed all of the stock air diverter duct thingies. Every time water washed over the hood the ski would bog down and run like shit for a minute or two. Has anyone else experienced anything like this with the riva setup?

    I have some flex 4" tube comming, where should I run it to prevent water ingestion?

    btw I have the outer filter over the k&n on the riva, it didn't seem to help one bit.

    mine is ok even in the chop.so you do have the prefilter on the filter right?
    and it dosen't help. I would think you might destroy your engine like that if you are riding and ingesting water through your filter.

    yes I have the pre filter. I'm thinking of putting the air ducting back into the front of the ski. I think the water is comming in through that hole under the glove box and infront of the seat.

    i took all the air ducting out of mine as well and have a 3" air intake with Riva filter and pre-filter located under the glovebox. it is actually bolted onto the "V" shape bracket where the stock air ducting used to be. so far so good and i have been in the ocean with it and have put the entire front of the ski under water.

    I think I'll do this then. My lake is like an ocean in the afternoon after the wind picks up and with all the boats.

    Mine was doing it the last time out,,,oh,,bout,,,3 years ago , but really it was, seat kept moving back just enough for water to come in. I also had the tubes still installed. It would go between seat and hull openning.

    It would really have to be screwing up badly. Because one of the times it did this is when I was turning really sharp and the front submarined.
