    Riva grate broke

    HEY GUYS, upon getting ready to go out today i went over my ski and to my suprise the RIVA grate has broken off right at the pump shoe which pulled out the 2 brass inserts. so now that i need a new grate and inserts should i put the inserts in with epoxy around them? or should i just fill the insert holes with epoxy and drill and tap?

    p.s. anyone have a RIVA grate OR SOMETHING BETTER they want to sell please send a pm thanks

    You didn't notice anything with the ski when you last used it? You probably need a girdle. I have one new if your interested when you put it back together.

    yea that happened to me too had to changr the entire pump shoe PITA I made some inserts and glued them in and it still pulled out so I changed everything and added the girdle but went with the R+D grate it has more meat at the bolt holes,, then I hand finished the grate with my porting tool

    Don't use the RIVA anymore. Use a worx or R&D and a girdle kit. Make sure the 2 plastic holes aren't cracked.

    Don't use epoxy.
