    XLT1200 factory nozzle size? Swap or no swap?

    So the XLT I just bought is bone stock except for d-plate and chip... which is fine by me.. all i want is a river cruiser for me and my wife anyway.. not really looking to break 70 (yet)... my exit nozzle is stamped 66V and I'm still running the factory plastic steering nozzle.. Well laying on my garage floor right now is a 60E stamped unit with the 95mm 4 vane steering nozzle.. From the research I've done, it looks like this is a '02ish FX HO unit? 87mm 5deg? Would it benefit me to swap this into my XLT at all? It's already tapped for the reverse gate so looks like it would be a direct bolt on.. OR would I be ok just running my stock reducer and swapping to the 95mm alum steering nozzle?

    Buy a GPR nozzle off ebay. Drill and tap it to accept the reverse bucket. Upgraded suggested this to me and I tried it on my ski while leaving my gf's stock. I could tell a big difference. Not the best for rough water but on glass I could feel it. People say you can pick up 1-2 mph by this mod. Considering I picked up my nozzles for $45 each I'd say its pretty much the most budget freindly mod I have done with the most gains. Make sure to get the 5degree GPR nozzle though.

    Well the thing is, this nozzle came off of a GPR... I didn't think anything of it until I saw the reverse gate bolt holes.. Why would someone put a 60E unit on a GPR?
