    Worked on the ski now I have some questions

    Finally got around to installing my Riva wedge and Rod. Everything went fine, but when I went to adjust the steering linkage I ran out of threads on the rod. The handle bars are almost straight, has anyone else run into this when they installed the wedge?

    I removed the OPAS so I could start making mine own block offs. In the process I removed the intake and found a quarter size puddle of oil/water mix at the bottom of the 90 attaching to the SC. (I have a ram air style much like the Riva rear air) Any ideas where it came from?

    Also I wanted to add that removing the resonator box is a PITA. I dont think Ive ever worked to hard on any single item on my ski.

    Is the linkage connected at all, or do you not have any threads to allow a good connection?

    A side note that could help...Look in the "how-to's" for the front steering adjustment. You might pick somehting up out of that thread. --jeremy

    You should have gotten a steering linkage extension with your Wedge which you will need to adjust the steering.

    The resonator is tough but soon as its out theirs a lot more room in the hull. The TB removable method works very well IMO.

    its connected but by like 4 rotations of the end link. I didnt receive the extension link (bought the wedge off a forum member). I hope there is enough threaded on the rod. Ill check out that how-to tho see if I see anything that will help.

    Yes, you need that extension link. You shouldn't ride the ski without it.

    Try calling R&D or RIVA up. I have the R&D set up and I would say its at least 1/4-1/2" longer than the stock one. I installed it up front, not in the back. I tried to get it close with the front and fine tuned at the back to get the bars straight.

    ok ill call them tomorrow and see whats up. Also I just remembered, on the steering nozzle, when you remove the bottom bolt that holds the OPAS bracket, what do after you remove it? Do you plug the hole or just leave it open.
