Thread: Exhaust Clamps
05-12-2008, 01:47 PM #1
I have the RIVA Waterbox and Free Flow and I am antsy how it says to re use the old hose clamps in fear they could come loose. I was thinking about going to T Bolt Clamps. What size is our exhaust so I know which size to buy and has anyone on here done this as well or do you guys feel safe using the hose clamps?

I just installed the Riva exhaust kit for my 07. I had a bead welded on the end of the factory pipe that you have to cut. Of course after doing this, i hear they have a new kit that eleminates the need to cut. Anyways, i dont think you should have a problem. If you got the same exhaust kit that i have, where you have to cut the factory aluminum pipe, then yeah i would put a bead on there before installing the silicone coupler and clamp. After i iinstalled my exhaust, i ran it on the water hose and then at the river. No problems so far. good luck.

just reuse old ones
and after you have hose run the ski or river run for 5-10 min to get every thing hot and soft.
just retighten the clamps and everything will be OK
at the end of the day if its tight it WONT come off ( just dont strip the clamp in the process from being heavy handed)
