    R&D SHO/FZR/FX 140/FX Hydro Force Steering Nozzle

    $135.13

    R&D's new Hydro Force Steering Nozzle for the SHO is a direct replacement nozzle. The new lengthened design delivers a full 1 MPH speed gain over stock. The adjustable pivot point position improves the turning radius allowing you to carve tighter turns with a more positive feel. Improved performance through speed, acceleration and handling.

    it will help with porpoising because the nozzle will be in the water more

    Waste of money. You HAVE a metal nozzle, and half the reason to buy a R&D nozzle for the Yami has been the crappy plastic nozzle's of the past.

    They are just peddling that on the SHO crowd. Your nozzle can be bored to whatever size you need.

    Food for thought.

    ...and your TURN nozzle has absofrickinglootly nothing to do with porpoising.


    AND NO NOZZLE IS IN THE WATER AT SPEED.

    well...the people have spoken!!



    thx guys

    some1 i had talked to was explaining to me that the lengthened nozzle (and the further aft exit point of the water stream) would have a lifting/lever effect on the aft of the craft.....i didnt see it addressing the issue of porpoising either as once that oscillation starts....it's tough to stop
