    OIL Block and yes I used search

    I did use the search function and found a ton of posts but nothing that puts what im wondering into perspective.

    OK. Going pre-mix and bought the Riva block off plate.

    Was wondering if there is detailed instructions posted (with pics would be great)? Also I have read many different ways to do this mod but still cant seem to see the pump inside the ski.
    I want to remove anything and everything I can to have a clean look and make anything down the road easier.

    Today I just got the rear section of exhaust out to do a d-plate when it comes in tomorrow.

    From the above rambling if you didnt figure it out.
    Looking for a how to with pics if possible. To get rid of oil injection pump and lines. Thank you and please dont flame Im new and I tried the search features.

    OK just read that I have to remove the U pipe (thick pipe towards front of ski) When I took the rear section of exhaust out it was a real mother. Anyone have any tech tips to removing that front u-pipe?

    Ok got the pipe out (wasnt that bad) Now Im down to the pump. I wanted to remove pump and all the lines. But here is the catch. The throttle cable is attached to the oil pump. Where do I take off the cable and what do I do from there if removing the entire pump??

    Also if removing the lines out of the ski I just trace them back and put vacumn caps on top of the carbs? There is 0 instructions in this RIVA block off kit. If you can really call it a kit. Someone please throw me a bone here Im lost.

    The cable on the pump goes to the carbs, should be able to eliminate it....

    Man Thank You so Much. I was so confused about the cable. I didnt want to cut it or remove it because I thought it may mess with throttle.
    New to this stuff and to be honest would rather be working on a 350. Or a Harley. here is my list of stuff Im doing atm

    1. Oil Block off kit.
    2. D-plate
    3. Waveeater clips
    4. Free Flow Exhaust.

    In a couple weeks.

    1. Intake Grate
    2 Pump shoe fill.
    3. Ride Plate.


    Again Thanks and Be Safe.

    Sounds good.... you will actually lose a little top end with the free flow... but i am sure the sound will be good... i would look into a modded rideplate (good for 4mph over stock) ...I would also look into rejetting the carbs, and adding a jetworks "holeshot" kit for round 3 maybe this winter....
