    RIVA Billet Driveshaft Sleeve Kit

    Is anyone using this kit? Is it worth the money? Also, RIVA's site says it will fit the 2015 FZR, FZS, SHO, Cruiser SHO. Does anyone (Greenhulk, Jim, Jerry, etc....) know if this will fit the SVHO? Waiting on Jims prop bend and figured it would be a good time to put this in since the shaft will be out. Thanks!

    I did it. Easy install. The OEM hose can get distorted after some time.

    I used a gates hydrolic 1" 3/4 hose from napa. Was $12 and much much stronger then stock.

    I've done both Hydraulic hose and the Riva sleeve. I prefer the looks of the sleeve, Julio...

    Just talked to RIVA. The kit fits 2011 and older FX SHO's no prob and also fits the new FZ series. They told me that the 2012+ FX gap is about 1 3/4" more narrow than the previous ski's. They said that the only way to make the kit fit is to cut down the new sleeve. Just FYI for anyone looking at buying one.

    I have installed many on the 2012 and up FX models and you have to cut the sleeve it is to long and does not fit.
