    Your Opinion on a -5 degree pump wedge for FZR(S)

    What if you would make your exit nozzle 0 degrees, by installing a -5 degree pump wedge, what would happen?
    I would assume it would help for holeshot and bounce but take off allot of top speed.
    What do you guys think?

    Or maybe someone already tried it?

    Bad idea. Learn to ride the Ski with the Trim variables you have on the Handlebar already. JB

    this is not correct sometimes less angle is better .. the faster you go the less angle you need

    Less nozzle pitch = more stick. IMO a wedge is a fine tuning tool though. If you want more bow pressure, IMO it's better to start with changing to a different ride plate or shimming because that will make a lot more difference. I have a -1 & -2 wedge. If you ever want to try them, you're welcome to borrow them any time.

    I was referring to the Trim settings (up and down) which are activated by the apparatus on the left side hand grip. JB

    trimming the steering nozzle to redirect the water stream doesnt have as big of an impact as the venturi nozzle degree angle.in theory lowering the venturi degree will slightly increase thrust,hole shot,and maybe a little bit of rpm and in turn you will lower the bow and drag the nozzle losing top speed.tommy is right though 5degrees is way too much id experiment with 1-2degrees at most.
