    Is that so? I did not know that. Well then I guess I’ll hold off on that purchase.

    What angle are the trim levels? With my stock setup, I typically hit the highest top end with trim up one level. It’s gotta be 5 deg, no?

    I also have the Riva ride plate, which also provides a slight angle improvement as well. So that plus this nozzle is likely enough.

    Thanks for your input.

    Well whats the benefit? The OP Ksalles is not running one that I know of. I believe you had the 2° wedge on before you went 5° nozzle is that right? Have you tested 5° nozzle without the wedge? I am at best of 67.5 mph without it on a beat up stock prop at a higher altitide than you on the newer extended stock ride plate and 5°nozzle. I might test in cold weather this weekend to see if can get 68 or better. Why put it on if we don't know if beneficial in any way? I worry that it would cause porpoising when riding with passengers and no benefit in top speed solo riding.

    Does anyone have any testing with 5° nozzle with and without an additional 2° pump wedge?

    What angle is each trim level for the 2016 VXR? My highest top speeds up to this point have been on one trim level above neutral. I’ve been told 5-7 deg per setting level?

    I’m thinking that adding the 2 deg pump wedge and the 83mm 09-13 FZR nozzle (sounds like it’s worth another 1.5-2.0 deg?) will allow me to keep the trim neutral for top speed runs now?

    Ok, so it appears that both the stock 87mm and 09-13 FZR 83mm are 5 degrees.

    I snooped around on the Sea Doo board a bit, and noticed that the old Sea Doo Stage Kits used to also recommended going from the stock 87mm to an 83mm to get high top end. That’s on a SC ski, of course, so hitting RPM wasn’t an issue.
