    Nozzle upgrade for XLT 1200?

    So I've heard that you can upgrade the xlt 1200 nozzle to a gp1200 nozzle, is that true? Would it help top speed?

    If so, who has one for sale????

    XLT nozzle has a 3 degree angle, where the GP nozzle is at 5 degrees so pushes the nose of the ski up for less wetted area and more speed.

    I would do a swap with you GP nossle for the XLT nozzle

    Well, ok then. Is it just a bolt on from there?

    You will have to tap 5 holes for the reverse bucket. But it is a straight bolt on from there.

    Ok thank you.

    So this upgrade will provide more top speed?

    More than likely 1mph. If you want a 87mm order one from a 2000-2002. If you want a 85mm order one from a 2003-up. Your 3deg nozzle from your xlt is 87mm.

    How would you guys consider doing this mod in regards to the OEM nozzles breaking?

    My logic may be flawed, but after hearing about that, I'm not sure if I would want to bolt on and 85mm nozzle to an 87mm pump.
