    Some info on upcoming R&D products...including ship date for FZ ride plate

    Hi Mark,



    I thought I would give an up date on what's coming soon. We are finishing up the R&D FZR Ride Plate, should be ready to ship on 9/17.

    The new R&D Exit Nozzle should be ready in about 6 weeks. It will be available in 5 degree(stock) and 2.5 degree up sweep, in bore sizes of 80mm, 80.5, 81, 81.5, 82, 82.5, 83. Custom sizes are also available at no extra charge when ordering. Retail price $199.95. The new design will also allow for 4 more additional cooling lines.

    We are also finishing up the newest of our intercooler kits that should be on the shelf in about 3 weeks. The new R&D Pro Limited Intercooler is designed around the IJSBA limited class 25% rule. It utilizes all the OEM hardware and tested in 100+ degree Havasu air temp to be extremely efficient. I do not have all the pricing complete, but I am trying to have a retail target price somewhere in the $875.00 range.

    Thought some of you FZ guys would be happy to see an aftermarket plate will be available soon.

    I'm not at all familiar with IJSBA rules, but from the description it sounds like it was designed to be limited class legal, not for maximum performance like the pricier R's.

    My mechanic said he may have my R&D ride plate this friday. He said he was with the guy from R&D (A guy named Bill?) over the labor day weekend and Bill (I think) said he saw as much as a "3 mph gain over stock.... "
    God I hope he's right. Maybe I won't have to think my ski is a "turd" anymore.

    I would say you are 100% correct on that statement.
