So this past summer the two corners of my rub rail on the back fell off after jumping a wave. I have a 2001 RX and i went to homedepot and bought a rivet gun to put them back on well the tip does not fit down into the hole of the rub rail. Is there a special rivet gun to put these back on or a technique? Thanks.

Put a small 5mm nut on the rivet "pull pin" that will make up the difference.

if you mean the post is left sticking out a bit, wiggle it with a pair of needle nose till it breaks off short enough to put the cap on.
i do same, never a problem.

Ill tell you my secret. When I do one I get a tip from a 4Tec spark plug and it works perfect.. Nuts and washers are a pain. The Tip the plug wire snaps on has to be removed on a 4Tec to fit the coil on the plug so I have them all over the shop. They are just the right length and diameter to work with the Seadoo pop rivets. I think they are the same.. Now You all must Die!!!

and very eco friendly, use every part, like the indians did!!! lol
i bet there are millions of spark plug tips out there polluting the bottom of tool boxes around the world.
