    steering nozzles sl 1050 vs.slx1200

    Does anyone know the difference between the steering nozzles on the 1997 sl1050 or the 98 slxh compared to a 2000 slx 1200. They are different part numbers I know that. I am trying to get my slx 1200 to shoot a rooster tail like those older machines do. I know maybe I am wasting my time but it looks really cool. I have installed a 6 dgree wedge on mine and also adjusted the trim rod and still not as high as those other machines. If anyone knows I would appreciate the response.

    What other machines are you referring to, with the high water tail?

    rooster tail

    There is a 1998 slxh on my lake which I think is the same hull as mine and it shoots a crazy roost. I looked up the part numbers on a few different pump parts and the only thing really different is the steering nozzle compared to my 2000 slx. Also the 1997 sl900 and the 1050 also has a crazy water tail too.

    A friend of mine has a '97 SL900, which I have ridden, and followed behind, at different times. I never thought of the water jet as being much different in appearance or higher than any other PWC.

    I will have to watch more carefully next time we go riding together.

    I think there was an aftermarket kit that added a water spout, something like the Yamaha Visibility Spout. It mounted onto the steering nozzle, and directed part of the water jet stream upwards. I think there is a photo of it around here somewhere...

    You could try relocating the engine cooling water exit nozzle, from the stock location inside the pump tunnel to the rear deck area. Not sure how high that would shoot at speed.

    rooster tail

    No not like the Yamaha ones. I am talking the whole trim nozzle trimming up enough to shoot a 10 foot high 40 foot long tail of water. It actually slows the machine down because its trimmed up so far. Mine just does not go up as high as others that I have seen and I am trying to figure out why.
