    Riva Catch Can

    Hey guys, I just installed my catch can and when I mount it the plastic part of the can touches the exhaust manifold. I even opened up the holes some to try to push it away. Does the manifold get warm enough to melt the catch can? I dont know what material the can is made of.

    And does anyone have problems with the valve opening up? It seems really smooth like after some bumps it would open. Im gonna rubberband it to something to keep it closed.

    I mounted my catch can to the front engine removal bracket. Used electrical tie down to hold the bleed off valve shut. Mines an 06 RXP with 250 hours and my catch can never has more than a teaspoon in it after weeks and weeks of riding, mostly just vapors/fumes

    My valve has never opened on its own yet. I did use a combination of spacers and washers to move the canister away from the manifold too ... can't hurt, one less thing for me to worry about.

    No problems w/ mine. The manifold wont get hot enough to melt it as long as water is flowing through it
