    '14 RXP Nozzle failure!

    Pulled the engine today for flywheel bolt replacement and discovered BOTH top nozzle mounts were broken. Has anyone seen this before and know what might have caused it? Will probably upgrade to the Riva Pro Series Nozzle and start with the 81mm ring.

    Ive seen it in high power skis before.

    You running turbo and didn't tell us? Lol

    Ive been told the riva nozzle that comes with the new riva pump is built better, and I know for a fact the rotax racing pump and nozzle looks to be unbrakeable IMO.

    Will the riva nozzle work on a stock pump?

    I'd rather not shell out the $1250 for the Riva pump, nevermind $2800 for Rotax. Was hoping to just replace the nozzle and get in back in the water for the last few weeks of the season

    It will bolt up, just not sure if it is too long.

    one thing you have to watch when messing with nozzles that the steering nozzle rests on the pump nozzle for the IBR to line up coming from forward to reverse. It took me forever to figure this out.

    The riva nozzle seems stronger. I've heard of the stock one breaking on big charger skis. Suck it up and get the riva pump! It's pretty nice

    Trying to save for TERBO so id rather just upgrade the nozzle. Just want to be sure it will fit the stock pump
