    Sorry about that, the ski is a 2008 gp1300r, completely stock with 50hs. on it, this will be the first mods. Riva 1300 grate and rideplate.

    Welcome to the forum.
    Best advice I can give:
    have a Goal in mind, Do you wish better handling?, better holeshot? more speed?
    have a Plan.
    Focus on the plan and use the proven parts that work together that will give you the best results for any category.

    the waters you primarily ride in will somewhat dictate which direction you should go in and simplify your choices.
    rough water set-up VS smooth water set-up.

    Plus there are some safety concerns you should give attention to if planning on going over the stock speeds of the GPR. ie: (recommended) tunnel reinforcement, grate, pump plug kit etc...

    Figure out what you want out of this machine and research here on the board, there are many many threads related to all the speed/handling tricks right here using the advanced search function...

    Enjoy, take your time and you`ll have success!

    Now to answer your questions: again what waters do you primarily ride in? grate = better hook up , ride plate = better straight line tracking with the possibility of more top end speed depending on ride plate angle. There is info here about that as well... Happy reading!

    Do what will suit your needs and try not to get sucked into doing more than what you want...
    with any decisions it is always give and take...

    Did you have the service recall done to your ski for the throttle cable if applicable?

    Not much more to add to this other than your boat will feel lighter, and looser with better response, especially in rougher water.

    Very true. There are some no brainer mods that everyone should put on that will greatly enhance your rides performance such as a ride plate and intake... you have very little wiggle room to improve unless you have these mods.

    I would also highly recommend sealing the pump properly and get an aftermarket impeller so that you can take advantage of all of that power the stock 1300 has.

    These should be your next mods.
