    Will other IC's fit my Riva IC Mount and Pipes?

    I have a leaking Riva IC which I have to replace. Will any of the other IC's fit on the Riva bracket? I'm leaning towards getting the Piranha since it is anodized, which I hope is more resistant to corrosion. The gen-2 Riva IC is also another good option since I've read it's the stock X IC which I'm sure SD has tested for salt water.

    How about the piping? I was thinking of just getting the IC to save a bit of money since the IC is all I really need.

    i think i just saw a x intercooler on ebay the other day..
    check there first..

    im sure a pression or XS intercooler could fit with a slight alteration.

    I replaced my leaking Riva IC with an XS cooler thet JR fizzle sells in the online store. My bracket, and plumbing worked from the riva kit, except needed 2 new couplers on the IC end reduced to fit the plumbing tubes.

    Good to know

    But, how old are our Riva IC before they start leaking?

    Thanks for the info guys!! Big help.

    My IC was 2 years old when it leaked. Used it for 6 months, then stored the ski, then used it again, then it caused a broken valve!

    John, the broken valve was probably due to rust buildup on the valve stem. This is a common problem with skis that have been sitting up for some time.

    Yup, the valve broke due to the rust build up, which was analized to be caused by the salt water flooding the engine. This happened the first time I ran the ski after flushing all of the salt water out of the oil.
