    GPR Steering Nozzle Replacement

    I plan on replacing the plastic steering nozzle.
    I feel more comfortable with a cast part than the OEM plastic.
    Which aftermarket nozzle is recommended?
    Riva, R/D and Pro-Tec all sell them.
    Pro-tec has (2) available - extended 20MM or 50MM
    Riva & R/D's are extended nozzles, but they don't say by how much.
    All of them have the additional mounting hole for the steering linkage to make them "quick turn" nozzles.
    I assume the inside diameter on all these are the same as OEM.
    I don't race closed course so I figured the 50MM Pro-Tec extended nozzle would probably not be an option.
    From what I've read, top speed is not affected by this mod.
    To me it's a safety issue at close to 80 mph
    Any thoughts would be appreciated

    i use the pro-tec (+20 mm over stock) and have bored it out to match the stock plastic nozz. I like it. Plus, i never have to worry about another plastic one exploding again at WOT. Here is a picture

    I agree, I would not want a plastic one to fail

    I have the R&D. Much stronger than stock

    I like the Pro-Tec XLT nozzle. I believe it is 9mm longer than stock. It has to fit under the reverse bucket.
