    Riva Exhaust coupler size

    Anyone know the size of the coupler on the Riva Exhaust for the 06 RXP? After riding all day Sunday I noticed that the top Stainless Steel clamp busted and fell off. The exhaust pipe backed up and was just barely hooked up.

    I almost got to test out my two Bilge pumps I just installed.

    I am thinking of replacing them with T-Bolt clamps...

    I guess the heat from the exhaust and the clamps heating up and cooling down over time break down.

    So if anyone knows the size of the coupler let me know as I am not near my ski for a few days.

    Jim

    Think THAT is a pain!??? Try it on the three seaters! The RXP coupler is about 1.5 inches too short. Found that out AFTER messing with it. I had to cut my OEM exhaust hose.

    Thanks, saves me some time. Yeah down by the thru hull is a pain. I remember I took off my RE blockoff and got the socket on it. I could not imagine doing it any other way.

    Check those clamps or replace them every once in a while. Cheap insurance..I couldnt imagine how fast the ski would have filled up if the exhaust pipe popped off.

    Man I only have two equaling 1000gph im not worthy, one of the best mods so far. I think I got more enjoyment seeing the water shoot out the back of the ski when I tested them then any other mod so far. I was so proud(Rude was and still is pretty darn enjoyable though)

    ... I fill my hull with water about once a month... just to make sure there still working And yes... it's pretty cool to see the water shooting out about 5 feet from the two fittings
