    Question Best ride plate & intake grate GP1200

    I need some input on best ride plate intake grate combo for a 97 GP1200. Stock ski no mods and not concerned about top speed. Usually riding in 1 to 2 foot chop. Need ski to hook up well and stop bouncing.

    This is right up Brandon's alley, as he probably has the fastest GP known to man. I'm sure he'll respond soon...

    The best rideplate is the R&D proseries rideplate and the R&D aquavien intake grate. Some go with the protec grate but I feel that one is more for surf riding. Be sure to shim that ride plate to get the most angle on it. let it just almost meet with the intake grate. This will allow you to get more of your nose out of the water, less drag.

    +1 on what Kris said, but if your riding in 1-2 foot chop, a shredmaster ride plate is the best for rough water, but will slow you down in smooth water.
