    Exclamation installing riva free flow right now, stupid questions

    i took a little break right now, i am putting in my free flow in....

    is it necessary to change the water lines if i am putting in the free flow by itself and leaving the secondary waterbox in the ski ??

    do i really have to redo my lines and put the water exit out the back? what will be the difference? is this just to remove more water out the exhaust. i would like to keep it as is.

    Any right now help would be greatly appreciated. thx in advance.

    Use a 1/4 ratchet with the right sized socket with a short extension, I think i put the clamp screw on the hull side and angled it towards the top middle of the seat.........oh yeah and get some Go Go Gadget arms, or a hot lil Asian chic with small hands to get in there for ya.............

    If I remeber right you can also take the exhaust outlet out and put the coupler on outside the ski and snake it back into the hull with the coupler on.........then get the Asian chic to tighten the other one for ya...............

    If you have a hair dryer or a heat gun, heat the couplers when you tighten them, makes for less loosening when the exhaust gets hot............

    used a 1/4 ratchet and 8mm socket and it worked. the go go gadget arms came in handy. what a PITA its gonna be to periodically tighten these clamps.

    overall failry simple install though ......I'M DONE! now to test it out next weekend.
