    RIVA SD Supercharger Blow-off Valve Kit

    Hey

    Has anyone had experience with the blow off valve kit from Riva.
    It doesnt mention which models its applicable to, it just says SeaDoo

    Can this be used on the 09 RXP-X?

    also,
    Is the installation fairly easy?

    any help would be appreciated

    Well Most people will prolly tell you do not buy a BOV they leak and they suck and not worth it and If jerry's not using it why should we....So on and So on....Well the fact of the matter is. That The RIVA BOV is not that good....and it does leak especially in big boost situations. If you want to run a BOV and in the RXP-X try looking at this thread

    http://greenhulk.net/forums/showthre...&highlight=BOV

    And also take a look at this website

    http://www.siliconeintakes.com/index...d779c5649ef362

    Basicly you want to run a good quality fully adjustable BOV with Metal Pipe..RIVA's is just not as good as these.....IMO......

    thanks for the input

    what basic mods would you recommend?

    Im mostly used to working on my car, so modding the rxp-x is a whole new world for me

    Well this is IMO.....but I would recomend that you do a custom 4" Air intake system...do a search on it you can make it yourself....

    Wait for a thru hull exhaust system or make it yourself.....Free flow From riva or R&D is ok but you will want a thru hull later on.

    I would for the sake of it install a bilge system. Not performance but saves your butt if something were to go wrong.

    Jim's Rideplate is worth more to speed than anything out there.....Also handling....I would save for that one...Its worth it....

    Look at [email protected] Intake grate or Riva which ever floats your boat.....I like the [email protected]

    Once you start doing these things then take a look at your RPM's and your top speed and then have someone re pitch your prop or buy a prop with that pitch based on RPM's and Speed

    You could also look into a Pump Wedge to fix that issue but it wont do all that much......

    1st Mods
    Bilge
    4" AIr
    Jim Plate
    Thru Hull
    Sponsons
    Grate
    Impeller
    Then all the other stuff

    If I missed anything chime in guys......

    They wont work in the 2010 model from what I heard. If the first mod you wanted to perform was a BOV then you need to spend about 2 days reading this site before you go any further. BOV is the biggest waste of money EVER.

    Right BOV is a waste of money and it robs performance. I ran over 200 hours on ceramic washers without blow off valve. Put one on and lost about 5mph. You simply don't need one with the basic mods most people run.
