    R&D SHO/FZR/FX 140/FX Hydro Force Steering Nozzle

    hi there guys.ive been looking through old threads to find more information about the r&d round nozzle vs the stock oval nozzle on the fxsho/fzr with little luck on a definitive answer.i know a few members on here own these just looking to see if there is a justified .5 - 1mph gain with it over stock.it looks good and the price seems fair if there are gains.does anyone have any experience with these? thanks in advanced guys.

    If you bore out the oem nozzle to 90mm you will gain about 2mph. That is info from a thread on here.

    I know that boring the steering nozzle about 2mm larger than the exit nozzle seems to work really well. Overboring it results in crap steering.
