X nozzle on std RXP?
I have two good impellers for my 2005 RXP Stage 3, and one is very close to a 15/22 (pitched up 15/20 4 blade) and its too much impeller for my current setup so I will be putting on my 15/19R 3 blade and 83mm nozzle instead. But I wondered about trying the big wheel with a stock X ski 87 mm nozzle just for fun ... anyone try that? Will the X nozzles fit non-X RXPs? If so, I might be interested in grabbing a stock X nozzle if someone wants to sell theirs.

I might want one after testing this weekend. PM me the price you want for it.
Is the X steering nozzle bigger than the std RXP too? Usually the steering nozzle is 3 - 5mm bigger than the reduction nozzle ...

I believe the stock x nozzle is 87mm and the stock rxp nozzle is 84?mm

Is it 83? hmm dunno why I thought it was 84. So when I'm running my 83mm ring I'm basically running my stock nozzle. Gotta get at least the 82 back in there....
Vern I'm not sure if you have an adjustable venturi but riva sells rings bigger then 83 and I think all the way up to 85.5 or 86... Just a thought instead of having to change your venturi out.

Yes, the stock RXP reduction nozzle is 83mm, X is 87mm. But since the RXP steering nozzle is like 88-89 mm (oval) I wondered if the X steering nozzle is proportionately larger than the std RXP steering nozzle too. It would almost have to be in order to have similar feel for the steering ... too tight on the steering nozzle and its harder to steer the ski. My guess is the X steering nozzle would more likely be around 91+mm, but I don't know ...
I have a stock nozzle and two adjustable nozzles and lots of rings ... but to keep the rings in place my nozzles are modded and not as easy to swap rings. No biggie ... I will do some testing the with the stock 83mm nozzle first, see how that does, then go from there.
