    R&D extended Steering nozzles users please read.

    I just noticed today that when you trim up and down and turn 80% to the left or right the steering cabel hits the pump. It hits a signififcant amount. So I had to grind a pocket in the pump and now its fine. I ordered mine from A&D and it was just in a box so I dont know if there are any instructions that come with it. Here is what it looks like.

    Whats the difference when riding? Did you feel as if something was right before you shaved the pump?

    Well I only used it once. You have to turn a lot less during most of your riding so it doesnt come into play. Only when you are going slow enough to turn the handlebars all the way or just in general when you turn them all the way - feels like something is stopping them from turning all the way. Thats what made me check. All good now.

    is this an R&D trim ring? I do not see where changing steering nozzles would affect the trim cable when you use the oem trim ring, nothing has changed.

    Where did you mount the pivot ball on the ear? From the pic, it looks like you used the inner hole. Do you think if you used the outer hole, the cable would rub?

    I used the inner hole. I guess that one is the quick steering one. I dont think it would rub on the outer one.
