    Steering Nozzle Question

    Hey guys I installed a R&D extended nozzle on a 05 1300r. I noticed that the steering was harder than before at higher speeds. I was thinking that it was due to more water jet contact with the extended than the OEM. Just wanted to see if this has happened to anyone. thanks

    That's exactly what it is. I know a lot of guys cut the extended part of the nozzle down some..

    i actually have better steering now with the r&d on mine.....

    strange...

    before i swapped i had to slow down to make turns and now i don't as much and it feels more responsive, maybe its an illusion....

    No illusion it turns on a dime on neutral. I didnt try with trim down. Should be alot better.
