R&D Steering Nozzle 1 MPH
Is anyone running a R&D Hydro Force Steering Nozzle on their GP1300R 05'???
Any results with the R&D Nozzle???
They claim 1 mph
" GPR Hydro Force Steering Nozzle
R&D's new Hydro Force Steering Nozzle for the GPR is a direct replacement nozzle. The new lengthened design delivers a full 1 MPH speed gain over stock. The adjustable pivot point position improves the turning radius allowing you to carve tighter turns with a more positive feel. Improved performance through speed, acceleration and handling.

They do steer better than stock, but our testing here in Texas showed slower top speeds. From .6-1.0 mph depending on the set-up.
Or maybe it was the Pro-tec nozzle
RX951 has reported gains from his extended nozzle, but I think it was modified by him.

I run the R&D nozzel my 1300 but it hasn't shown any improvement on the top end. It is also hard to trim up under power in it's stock length as it's considerately longer. But I have found it to work very well after cutting the 2 rings off the end which after a little paint makes it look almost stock. And it's very easy to trim and I have to believe it's stronger than the stock plastic one.

Guys fitted my steer nozzle today was happy with it even that is was .3 slower for me but this may because it was so tight to steer
I slotted the plastic washer in between but i could nt tighten it all the way up as it was tightening the whole thing together which i couldn t turn so i back it off a little but what the fix to this problem.

I run one, it will be impossible to tell if I gained or lost though unless I swap back on the stocker. Just don't want the stock one blowing up on me at speed!
