    Hey 305, I have one sitting in the shed ready to go in when I find the time, I'd be interested in fitting issues and whether the finer adjustment worked more easily under load... Worthwhile mod??

    I noticed the nozzle has one hell of a sweep between full up and down trim. I tried different settings and found myself only using one click up or down from neutral. Probably would require more if I were in rough water. Just wondering if it's worth the $30 or save the money for go fast goodies.

    na its a pretty straight foward installation.all it does is make your trim positions more positive and closer together.it was probably good for a few tenths of a mile top speed on flat water.

    If you are comparing stock settings to the R&D trim....one click up from neutral usually yields 1mph fast with stock trim. With R&D the difference is usually 1.5mph with my tests.

    Sweet. That's what I'm looking for. I'm trying to get all I can out of hull before any engine mods.

    I know what you mean....those results are with me testing and other riders who are consistent with their speeds so it's fair to say the R&D yields a bit more.

    Im getting ready to try the cam too. Got it cheap in the classifieds so figured why not. People always said they liked it.

    I have one on my FZR - what I like is that it makes changing trip positions under throttle much easier. The shorter throw between clicks helps when there's load on the nozzle. I've been back and forth so many times on plates and impellers and stuffers and other stuff that I couldn't speak to any increase in speed, but I would say for adjustability alone it's worth the time.

    Good luck!
