    3 degree nozzle to suit 2007 gp 1300r

    Hi i need some advice , i have a 2007 gp1300r and after a 3 degree nozzle as i ride in the ocean .
    I have read that the nozzle i need is off a XLT . Can some one tell me what year the XLT has to be, and weather it has to be off a ski that had a reverse bucket on it ? Thanks

    I doubt that you would see any difference between an 85 and an 87mm in your riding conditions. For most guys riding in the ocean, the trick is to keep the boat in the water, not top end speed.

    How ever fast your boat travels in smooth water, do you honestly belive that you could maintain that top speed in rough water? The 3 degree, whatever the exit diameter will stableize you craft, give you an overall speed increase, and give you more confidence when riding in big water.
