Instructions for intalling Riva Sponsons on a XLL?
I just got a set of Riva Sponsons for my XLL 1200 (part# RY2619-1) but don't have the instruction manual... does anyone have the instructions? Thanks!

Try contacting RIVA since it is a product of theirs. I'm sure they could produce a document for you pretty quick.
RIVA instructions list
Not sure how they are designed, but they may be very similar to the GPR Pro-Series sponson instructions

Thanks, I just e-mailed them... I looked on their instructions page before I posted but it wasn't listed. I was hoping someone on here had a set...

I have a set of instructions now... but I still have a few questions... mainly, what sort of silicone should I use when installing the new sponsons (on the studs)?

Do not use silicone.
Use blue loctite. It's found at any automotive store.
Also, consider getting a Yamaha service manual for your ski. This will greatly aid you in the future, when considering doing upgrades. If you have one, then check it out. Lot's of good info in there.

I have a manual, I just didn't know about the silicone that the Riva instruction sheet said I needed to put on the mounting studs and on the backing plate.

MOST silicone contains amonnia, and should be used for the application for which it was designed.
Silicone works great on the backing plate...but you didn't say the backing plate. You said the screws.
As you grow with this ski, you will quickly, I MEAN QUICKLY, discover that the "Devil is in the Details."
I find it excellent that you ask questions. But ask the entire question, so that you will get the entire answer.

point taken... thanks for all your help though, I went out and bought some Blue Loctite.

Hey guys beaware I know that with the Riva gpr1200 sponsons. They make you take out the 10mm bolts and replace the holes with some silicone. Works well at first but after awhile the silicone does dissappear and you will get water in those holes and the water will get inbetween the hull and you cannot remove it unless you find the water and drill holes in the bottom of the ski... Very much a pain in the coolieee..

Luckily the one for my ski still retains the stock mounting studs so there were no holes to file...
