    there is some speed gain
    but you will need to shim the plate for more angle to make the most of it
    i found the riva plate gave me more top end
    and as far as grates goes i tested 3 diferent ones and there was not much diference if any
    although my testing was on an 04 fxho and they are a diferent grate than the 08

    Ok, but the vx plate does not fit the HO, I know that one is very good for the fzr. I will try riva or r&d.
