    wave raider nozzle question...

    do any of you guys know what nozzles are interchangeable with a yam 1100 raider? i think i read that a 1997 gp nozzle is the best upgrade...something about a 5 deg adjustment...are the 760 wave raider and 1100 interchangeable?

    i also read that i should shim the ride plate...logic tells me to shim the fornt of the plate so when it planes out the front will be higher out of the water ...is that correct? and if so how much do i shim? 1/4" 1/2"?

    The 95-96 raider 1100 had the 0 degree exit nozzle, as well as the 97 Gp1200. The 98-99 GP1200 exit nozzle had the 5 degree exit nozzle. If you want more lift = top end, than go with the 98 or 99 GP1200 exit nozzle.

    As for shimming, I have never shimmed my rideplates. I had a pro-tec shorty rideplate on my Raider 1100 and never shimmed it. I noticed about a 1mph increase in the plate itself and never needed to do any adjustment, BUT others have, and have received better speeds from it over not doing it. That is something you will have to tweek.

    Thx for the info. Keep us informed on the blaster conversion. I have thought about doing I myself. But I enjoy riding the blaster too much as it is right now.
