    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.

    The R and D nozzle seems to help in turning on the RXT.
    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.

    yes, xpl is longer, i'll measure it to be exact.

    xpl 4.5"
    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..

    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.

    about the same then, I got 113mm on the xpl & 102 on the rxt. The 91mm opening is the difference then.

    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
