    Use this nozzel for the conversion?

    What do you guys think of using this nozzel "kit" for my gprxp..

    I think its all Riva stuff? (Itīs from my SS) Its has a adjust screw for the nozzel as well.
    The wide of the steering nozzel is 92mm, will that be to wide?

    Let me hear your thoughts..

    This is a Closed course ZERO degree auto drop nozzle for the GPR. It is best used with a 158mm pump or larger, and is made for acceleration, not top speed.

    To use this nozzle without some way to bring your nozzle angle up will scrub a ton of smooth water speed off of your ski. I don't think anyone makes wedges for the 155 GPR/XLT pump. It would be cool if someone did.

    It will cause the hull to act like it is on rails, and turn like nothing you have EVER ridden before. The handling is incredible with this nozzle. The acceleration is crazy with this nozzle, but the giant size knocks down your top end. Most came with sizing rings in the nozzle itself to change charactaristics... but not sure if the Riva did or not.

    Most SD folks (and Yami smooth water gps guys) don't know (or take the time to figure out) there are quite a few designed still available, including this riva one...but it's made by Skat trak. Skat also has a carbon fiber setup, if your wallet feels too heavy.
