    Fx svho 19 with 2 degree pump wedge

    Hi Everybody,

    i have a fx svho stage 1 plus 2019 with riva ride plate and planning to install a 2 degree pump wedge. Anyone using this parts? any benefits?

    when installing the pump wedge should i change the nozzle and trim cables due to the pump wedge width ?

    thanks, marco.

    Bolt on and go!...just an adjustment to the steering fitting where the steering cable end connects to the steering nozzle.

    Faster without the wedge on a 16? I still have mine on my 16 but never tested with current mods without it. Now you have me thinking it might be fun to see what the difference in ride will be without it.

    I tried one for a few weeks and took it back off. It did increase speed about 1mph but lost it's good turning ability that I liked most about the new hull.
    You will need to adjust the reverse bucket, trim and steering linkage.

    Dumb question Im sure, but why is a wedge needed when you have adjustable trim? Couldn't you just adjust the nozzle using the trim adjustment rod and achieve the same outcome?

    The wedge give an extra 2degrees bow lift

    I have a 19’ FX SVHO with a RIVA stage 2 running 83mph. I installed the 2 degree wedge at the same time as all the parts, so not sure if it made a difference or not. Local race shop told me to remove it, so will try that and see if it picks up or slows down.
