    I have been calling them every week, and the release date keeps changing. I wish someone had an answer im about to just use an aqua sports kit, really getting sick of the run around from Riva.

    Guys i bet it has a bunch to do with oil temps and that bigger cooler as it is probably harder to set up with out the ski suffering something.

    But im just thinking out loud.

    My oil Temps on the kit they have now for the 260's we're Fu€ked I can only imagine how it would be with increased cooling, I had to restrict my lines to almost nothing, what would be cool is a little thermostat opens and closes for the oil cooler..
    Also just thinking out loud

    I remember the days when some of us ran without oil coolers with open loop.

    Is this still an issue on the 260's?? I'm about to do mine. Think I'm safe installing per the instructions or should I modify something??

    Thanks.

    I restricted my oil cooler feed line with a 6mm barb fitting clamped inside the hose. It kept oil temps in the area of 200 degrees or less. The wide open hose will get you 150 degree oil temps on average
