    Question x4 110 Handling Advice

    I have a 1996 Sea-Doo XP 800. I think I want to buy the complete R&D extender wing kit, Solas Intake Grate, and an 87/89 Extended Nozzle. I was told to use an 87/89 nozzle over an 85/88 nozzle because my ski is stock, is this correct? Does anybody know of any other intake grate besides the Solas that increases top speed in smooth water. If anybody has any suggestions of the best: Intake Grate, Impeller, Ride Plate, Nozzle Kit, etc for top speed gain in smooth water your suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    (PS - I plan to keep my engine completely stock.)
    Thanks Aaron

    R&D sucks. Get Worx Sponsons and Grate. No grate increases top speed...but the Worx does not LOSE any top end like the others. Get an R&D 85/88 nozzle set with a Solas XO. Staying stock like you want to, this will provide you the best performance.

    Jay, if I remember right it was 2 mph? The hookup was substantially less than the Worx too.

    I forgot to comment on the ride plate...the stock is best. Leave as-is.

    i have the stock ride plate. wow, i didn't think it would be 2mph. i was looking to get over 60 on a stock engine set-up and was consistently over 59 last summer. added an adjust-a-thrust right before the last ride of the season so no time to really test or dial it in. figure i should be over 60 with the aat. anyone have a worx they want to sell?

    ok, just went out and checked. there is no brand on the grate. it has a scoop with a notch cut out of the back side of the wing in the middle. sound familiar? i can take a pic if needed.
