    just sharing my opinion and not slamming Riva.

    I feel the Riva kit is over priced.
    With that out of the way it is a very good option IF you can get past the plastic cover that comes with it.
    There is a recent thread and I have a thread discussing using the stock cover. The Riva is a good lever but prefer the UMI lever, had the uni on my other ski.
    I feel both are viable options. The X lever is available in piece meal which will run about $200

    Here's what I did..
    I'm using the Riva bar extension kit. I tossed the cheesy shroud cover they supplied & used the billet finger throttle I had laying around since the riva plastic one was a yamaha trigger.

    I removed the OEM thumb throttle & put the plugs back in. I lined up the KVPI to be sure of the grip & finger position at WOT that was comfortable & marked it before I drilled the hole in the shroud cover. Drill the hole at the angle of the cable so it won't look goofy

    BLAM!!

    Here it is.

    Love the KVPI throttle... I had one back in the day on my 96XP. Where did you pick it up from?

    I had it on my GSX for a while, took it off, put it back on. Then I swapped the riva/yamaha throttle over to the GSX & put it on the rxp.

    I got it on ebay several yrs ago.

    ou812,

    Excellent job on the finger throttle... Looks factory. Can you list exactly what parts you needed to do that project?
