I did it...
The wife and I picked up a shiny new FZS tonight, black of course. Looks like the first thing I need is the new grate and PPK kit to resolve the buck.
I found Jerry's thread to be awesome for the answers I already needed.
Cant wait to turn this into a wicked project.
I'll miss my lil GPR.

I don't believe the PPK mod is needed. Just the grate, and check to make sure your transom plate is squared up.

never caught that about the transom. I will search for the transom issue. thanks.
this was what I was talking about for PPK, the riva pump seal kit. If it isnt needed, what is everyone doing about filling the voids?

You need the pump seal kit with the grate.

The R&D plug kit has a nice tight fit. Much nicer than their gpr kit.
When i put the pieces in the grate. They stuck out like 3/16". I thought damn, i have to grind this crap. Then i put the pieces in the transom and saw they were recessed about the same 3/16".
When i put the grate up the plugs sticking out of the grate went into the recess of the transom plate for a nice tight seal. I'm not using 3m fast cure. The fit of the plugs is so nice there just doesn't seem to be a need to seal it.
I did have to take .70 off the mounting bosses to make the grate sit flush with hull and transom plate though.
