R&D Yamaha FX HO/SHO Sponson Kit
The new R&D Yamaha SHO Pro Series Sponson Kit was designed and developed with all new generation performance concepts in mind to deliver a whole new level of handling and speed performance with offshore and closed course race proven adjustability options. The R&D Pro Series Sponson Kits have been extensively offshore, race track, and 1 and 2 up recreational tested to guarantee a comfortable setting for any riding style or condition! The R&D Sponson Kit will deliver higher top speed performance and a much smoother and more predictable ride over O.E.M. sponsons. Low speed and high-speed turns are a breeze with new found control. The secret to R&D’s new generation concept is in the backing plate design with an aftermarket first, low pressure, low friction concept that breaks up and relieves speed robbing drag within the sponson’s backing plate channel. The new R&D design staggers the sponson blades fins water trapping area to pick up less water in the front and more in the back. The stagger/step-up concept greatly reduces chine walk in high speed corners, while allowing more rear end grip. There is also a higher end recreational/race setting with enough grip for the best of pro’s! Finally there is an aftermarket sponson kit that really does it all! More top speed due to less drag, less chine walking, racer preferred rear end grip, and unmatched straight line stability.
