    ride plate flexing

    just looked over my pump area tonight and noticed a rub mark on my riva plate right at the pump/reduction nozzle area, has about 1/8 in space between, is it normal to flex that much? never noticed this before but then again i never ran a riva plate before, this is on the 08

    Sounds like your plate is to far away form you pump

    so the plate should be touching pump? +1/8 on the plate angle sure wouldn't hurt, i figured get it as close as possile without touching, or relief cut plate for more angle
