    R&D Steering nozzle fitting

    Hey guys, my steering nozzle arrived but there is no fitting kit, just the nozzle. It will require longer bolts and spacers. Are these availiable? How does everyone else fit them?

    Ehh, why do you need longer bolts for a steering nozzle? It should bolt right back on with the factory hardware....

    Ok just searched through the forum...I should use the oem metal collars with allan head bolts which are ment to be supplied with the nozzle.

    Any idea where I can get these bolts????

    I have 2 gpr's and have no idea what your talking about.

    To change the steering nozzle it's just 2 12mm hex bolts on the top and bottom of the steering nozzle (with metal inserts). Then a 10mm hex nut and 5mm (I think) hex (allen) wrench for the steering cable attachment bolt.

    Reuse all the same hardware..

    I think where the boilts go thru the nozzle is thicker and the hex on the bolts digs into the nozzle, correct?
    by using stainless good grade allens or socket head bolts the head will be recessed slightly and not interfere with the nozzle turning...

    the r&d nozzle uses socket head cap screws to hold it on. not hex heads like the stocker. If you bought it new, I'd call r&d and ask them to send you the hardware. just be warned.. . they do not know the meaning of business etiquette, common courtesy or professionalism.

    if you got it used, just pick up some stainless M6? bolts from your local hardware store.

    I think the bolts are 8 mm be sure to use the spacers off the stock bolts too!
