how does the stock x grate scrub speed?
show me a pic and explain it.
maybe if i can understand how the grate SCRUBS, then i can better understand how the RD/riva/worx ADDS speed on this ski. 2-3mph is a big difference and i'd like to understand the detail...might even help me with my honda grate issues.

its the design of the wing in the middle.

The archives don't go back far enough to post a link to answer you.
Suffice it to say...the oem grate scrubs speed because the wing is so damn big. The replacements don't add speed....they don't drag as much...an increase in speed.

I just added my r&d grate and sealed the edges of the ride plate with silicone. it does not cavitate or anything like stock i can tell i picked up speed and the most amazing thing is in 3 hours of riding hard with the stock grate i could burn a whole tank. went out this morning and rode for two and a half hours really hard and left the dock with almost half a tank i love it. for rec riding the stocks more fun but in the long run it isnt worth it
