5 degree pump wedge :)
It cost me an arm and a leg to get this one of a kind 5 degree pump wedge, but its done. If your running the seadoo nozzle and pump, you could probably use this thing. Its a one piece 5 degree wedge!!!!! The first one cost me a pretty penny. I think the next one going to see if he can add the veins into it. Its going to be a while because he is going to be out of town for sometime.

too much, hahaha. But supposably the next one will be cheaper but the guy wants to do 10 at a time and to be honest, I ain't spending that much on 10. It would come to about $250 a piece and thats my cost with material and time. I make nothing off of it.

I would not put that on unless you like putting your life at risk. I've seen two guys come off at 85++ from broken bolts from extra stress of not being bolted straight, one took many week before he could return to work.
Either use a yamah 5deg nozzle, design the wedge properly, design a SD 5deg nozzle or don't use anything.

This is a 5 degree wedge for a seadoo nozzle. The holes on top are drilled straight and the ones on the bottom are drilled at an off angle, so there is no stress on the nozzle or wedge.
I went through that with Leo's wedge, so I made sure the guy knew to drill the holes accordingly for the change in angle. He even put the two holes for the bailer hoses in the wedge, yamahas don't have that. This is not for a gpr yamaha nozzle. I have a gprxp and running the seadoo nozzle, so I wanted the 5* angle on it. Now I have it.
Thanks for pointing that out, but fortunately I already knew that, thankfully or I'd be out in the garage right now checking it out, hahaha.

That wedge looks fine. Usually, it's the ears that break off the SD nozzle, not the bolts.

So are you saying that "1" cost you $250 or would they cost $250 each if 10 were ordered?

I'm using a 2' Riva and a 2.5' R&D pump wedges. I just wonder if there would be any difference using a one piece 5'?
