    Riva rear exhaust meltdown

    My rear exhaust had a meltdown today and I almost lost my ski. Thankfully a buddy was along to tow me in. Jerry I need a replacement , what is the procedure and any suggestions what may have caused it other than it being plastic.

    Out of curiousity, what occured right before meltdown, were you going WOT for an extended period of time? Did the high temp alarm go off?...PR...

    I`ve run wide, tried and fried for at least 20 mins straight quite a few times and haven`t come close to a melt down. Ya`ll MUST run in the weeds and sandbars. I`ve got a plastic Riva pipe. I`m changing to a SS pipe just because I`m gonna be a tad on the lean side. And I own a 10,000.00 tubing bender with dies.

    I`m thinking you should go with the RR pipe, just to play it safe, I eventually will change it out!

    Hey HOSS!: are you going to make a few? Have you made a proto for the GTX`s yet?...PR...

    If you can give me or send me the plastic one I can make you one out of stainless. Won`t be polished but I can get lengths of polished.

    I`m going to copy my RXP pipe. Is that the same exact one for yours. I really never looked at the schedule of it. I`ll find out as it should be printed on the length. If you have one for a GTX I can do it for you. Send it in and pay for shipping.
