    Riva Drive shaft sleeve too Long?

    Installing a Riva billet sleeve in my 18 Gp. It's like this thing is a 1/16" too long. Thought it might have been my hull... Nope tried it on my buddy's Gp right next to mine. Identical.... Thought it might be my sleeve is just an odd one too big.... Nope he sent me a message today cursing that his wouldn't go either. I installed on on my 18 VXR a year ago and it was snug but went in with out fighting. Anyone else have any issues?

    That's because RIVA doesn't make one for the GP1800. The driveshaft sleeve they make is for 2008-11 FX models and all FZ models (see below)
    You can make it work by cutting it down shorter.


    RIVA Yamaha FX(08~11) / FZ(all models) Billet Driveshaft Sleeve Kit

    Our precision machined Billet Driveshaft Sleeve is a direct replacement for the thin factory rubber hose that is prone to distortion and failure....

    I installed the billet kit from the earlier model and it fit perfectly in my GP1800.
    Great piece of mind!
