Extending RXT steering nozzle. Best length and bore?
On my laundry list of things to do with my 06 RXT this spring is extending the steering nozzle. Its off and ready to get done but i don't know what the optimum length or bore would be. I want to keep the reverse which shouldn't be a problem because you can add probably two inches to the nozzle without it hitting the bucket. I can also bore the nozzle bigger or taper the extension smaller if need be. Just looking to get this pig to turn a little better.

It is longer and wider diameter then stock. I cant remember exactly the dia or length but have measured the OEM, R and D, and JD adapter.
JD nozzle ext. is the longest and smaller dia. then OEM.
Sorry cant give you exact lengths and Dia. (I will see what I can dig up) but tested all 3 on my RXT and the R and D is best in turning IME.

Have you tried the xpl steering nozzle?
The xpl nozzle (88.34mm) is a little larger than the rxt/rxp (87.67)

I am thinking the R and D is 91 mm dia.
OU812, is the longer nozzle the XPL??
I am guessing the R and D is a hair longer as its in between OEM and JD extention.
I cant find any pics side by side.

Oh damn, I just saw you want to keep your reverse...Maybe a 951 gtx steering nozzle, they had reverse didn't they?

rxt 4.0" long
I recalibrated my calipers & got 88.77 on the xpl and 87.75 on the rxt
But then again, these are harbor freight calipers..

i believe teh r&d is 10 mm longer than a rxp and it is slightly oval

Welding and extension and boring mine is no big deal. all in all it'll end up costing me around $10 to do. I was going to add an inch to mine before i thought of checking with my learned brethren at GH.

All that sounds correct, and I think the JD extentions are 86mm and 87mm at tip and longer then the R and D.
The only pic I could find is of the JD extention on OEM nozzle but you can get an idea how much longer it is.
All this info and still does not help you much. LOL
