    RXP Pro-Series Reduction Nozzle steering bolt holes?

    I was finally getting around to installing this on my S150, but noticed that it had holes for the reverse bucket on the sides, but none for the steering nozzle up and down. What am I missing, or is everyone having to tap their own steering nozzle holes on these?

    Huh?

    Is that a cap in the hole or did they not drill out the holes for the steering nozzle? Looks like a defective piece.

    So none of the skis has the steering nozzle bolted to the venturi? I bought a GTX venturi/steering nozzle before that was attached just like my boat's.

    Edit: bought from Pale Rider actually... your 83mm nozzle I got from you worked so well, I decided to get this, but... do I need the RXT/GTX version to have the nozzle bolt holes?

    GTX Yes... RXP No...

    I don`t see why you can`t drill and tap that.

    Scott, samething happened to my buddy when he ordered one for the boat you were helping with advice on. Jerry said it would work on the jetboats, but like yours the holes aren't right. My buddy was just going to sell the nozzle but I convinced him to just drill and tap the holes. We plan to do that this weekend.

    His boat is running around 62-63 mph but he can only go 4/5 throttle before he is banging the limiter, even in 95 degree weather. So he really needs this nozzle to work bad.

    Right, MPower, thanks for chiming in. I remember Jerry said we needed the RXP one, so I'm assuming that none come with these holes pre-tapped?
