R&D Drop Nozzle Install/Setup?
I have a R&D Drop nozzle setup (SHO version), which I recently purchased used. Does anyone have the install instructions available? Also, can the OEM bolts & sleeves/collars be used for securing to the exit nozzle?
Thanks for any info!

Just did a search & think I've got it. But would appreciate if anyone had some pics of the Drop nozzle setup installed on their FZR or FX SHO.

To install you will remove the stock quick connect adapter saving the jam nut. Install the adapter onto the threads with the hex facing the front of the ski followed by the jam nut so the nut should now be in the front of the billet adapter instead of behind the stock adapter. Use OEM hardware to install trim ring. Install nozzle and rocker box to trim ring using the supplied 8x16,8x40,spacer,washer and bushing. On the top use the stock spacer in the trim ring and then the 8mm washer followed by the supplied spacer on top of the washer using the 8x40 allen bolt to secure it all through the Heim rod. The nylon bushing will go on the bottom side of the assembly between the trim ring and nozzle using the 8x16 allen bolt to secure it. Install rocker box to pump with stock pump bolts. The support bracket will sit behind the rocker box. Pull nozzle forward and guide the billet adapter into the push rod. That's it, you're done. Now just adjust the push rod assembly to work smoothly. You may have to trim the reverse bucket to keep the push rod from interfering.

Thank you for the detailed install info! Now I will just have to get it all set up & see how well it hooks.
